Miami, FL – August 20, 2018 – Eagle Home Mortgage, a financial services subsidiary of Lennar Corporation, today announced that Laura Escobar, previously Executive Vice President of Eagle Home Mortgage, now leads the company as president.
Ms. Escobar is a 33-year mortgage industry veteran and joined Eagle in 2002. She assumed the role of EVP in 2016, in which she led all business operations for the company’s builder channel. Prior to this role, she served as SVP/Regional Manager, VP/Regional Manager and a Branch Manager.
“Ms. Escobar’s ground level approach to every facet of the mortgage lending business has enabled her to lead and fully integrate all departments at Eagle,” said Bruce Gross, Chief Executive Officer of Lennar Financial Services. “I am confident that her knowledge of our business, our culture, our builder relationships and our associates will make for a seamless transition.”
Ms. Escobar is preceded in the role of president by Jimmy Timmons, who in June announced his retirement, effective today. Mr. Timmons held the position of president since 2005 and has been associated with the Lennar Family of Companies for over 25 years. As president, Mr. Timmons grew Eagle Home Mortgage in many ways, most significantly in terms of geographic footprint, builder capture rate, revenue and profitability.
