Nations Lending has expanded its presence in Virginia by opening a new branch in Glen Allen.

The national lender has tapped Lee Jean-Pierre (pictured), a mortgage veteran of 20 years, to oversee the office as branch manager. He will report to regional sales manager Kathryn Edelen.

Commenting on the branch opening, Edelen said: “Nations Lending focuses on making home loans human from start to finish. We aim to simplify the process for our customers as well as the partners we work with. This includes everyone from branch managers to sales, human resources, and more. With this mentality in mind, there’s no better manager to lead the Glen Allen branch than JP. He’s someone that truly cares for his customers and the team he works with.”
