Wingspan Portfolio Advisors, Carrollton, Texas,a provider of specialty and component loan servicing for the mortgage industry, announced the appointment of E.J. Kite, a mortgage information technology expert with 26 years of experience, to the newly-created position of senior vice president of information management.
Kite is now responsible for leading Wingspan’s award winning technology infrastructure, reporting and analytics capabilities, and integrating the many software tools that support the fast-growing specialty servicer, the company said. Wingspan Portfolio Advisors specializes in handling severely delinquent loans.

He began his career with Freddie Mac in 1984, where he spent 20 years in multiple technology roles, providing key resources for the GSEs’ tremendous growth in portfolio size and technological sophistication.
Kite left Freddie Mac in 2005 to work for Resurgent Capital Services, a subsidiary of Sherman Financial, where he served as a senior director and led operations and analytic teams.
“We’ve been very technology focused since the start, and adding E.J. to our team will take us to even higher levels of technology sophistication," said Steve Horne, Wingspan Portfolio Advisors’ CEO.
Wingspan was named “Servicer of the Year” by Mortgage Technology magazine for 2009-2010.
