The Chief Revenue Officer of Lima One Capital, Josh Craig, has been named one of HousingWire’s 50 Rising Stars of 2021.
“Josh has led our sales teams from a full halt in March of last year to record production levels today,” said Jeff Tennyson, CEO of Lima One Capital. “I’m very excited, and certainly not surprised, that he is included on a list of mortgage industry executives under 40 who are making a meaningful difference in the future of our industry.”
Craig joined Lima One Capital in January 2020 as the Chief Revenue Officer. Navigating a global pandemic within 60 days of joining the company, Craig thrived and was able to quickly build a strategy to rebuild Lima One’s Sales and Marketing team and re-position the company as one of the top five originators in the Business Purpose Lending space.
In addition to revamping the company’s sales and marketing teams, Craig also led multiple initiatives over the past year, such as the creation of a Line of Credit program to greatly simplify and streamline the borrower underwriting process; creation of a ground-up New Construction product to provide more efficient and flexible capital to builders; and the creation of a Customer Experience team to focus on delivering industry-leading service to Lima One’s clients.
“I was fortunate to join a team of incredibly talented people when I Joined Lima One—a team that cares deeply about what we do and why we do it,” Craig said. “The amount of work we put in during the pandemic to reposition the company and rebuild our team has propelled us forward at breakneck speed and will only further cement our position as the Premier Lender for Real Estate Investors in the country. To see that work recognized, especially by a group as well-respected as HousingWire, is an incredible honor that I’m deeply grateful for.”
