A few years ago, Brad stepped up and embraced a lending role for Craft3 in Spokane, at the time an emerging market, after the unplanned departure of the Lender. We as a group recognized his efforts to stabilize our commercial lending efforts in Spokane. To bring this full circle, after managing the lending role well, he began transitioning back to an underwriting role. The transition from lender to underwriter evolved over a 9-month time period. During that time Brad managed both the lending and underwiring jobs. Not only did he exceed his annual production goals last year as a Lender, but he also carried an equal number of loans as the rest of the underwriting staff. If those heroic efforts weren’t enough, he helped on-board the new lenders in two markets (Walla Walla and Spokane) and continued his Lender outreach efforts. Along comes Covid-19, and he swiftly engaged in the grant work in his region while maintaining the quality and volume demands of his day job.
Not all hero’s wear capes, some work tirelessly behind the scenes to help us, as Company, put our best foot forward. He has consistently helped support the Craft3 brand and, overall, is a great team member to work with.
Months before COVID dominated our lives, Tawni Regier was supporting Craft3 in 1.5 positions after the departure of Craft3’s Development Assistant. It was decided then that Tawni would take on these new activities as a way to develop and grow in her position, and she was very excited to take on these new responsibilities that included taking over the management of the Private Placement Offering (PPO) and a number of the reports to funders. With COVID hitting, Tawni has taken on a lot of extra responsibility without the benefit of any relief from the full-time job she was already managing well for Craft3.
Tawni always comes to work with a smile on her face and the eagerness to learn new things that benefit Craft3 and her development within the organization. She also continues to support Craft3 with feet on the ground in her local community by being an active CASA member and organizing or participating in volunteer activities with other Astoria office members to support 4H at the local fair, feed the homeless, and participate in Christmas activities supporting low-income families in the area.
