Industry vet Sean Johnson returns to Movement as new Capital Atlantic Regional Director - Movement Mortgage Blog

FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA — Movement Mortgage, the nation’s sixth-largest retail mortgage lender, is excited to reinforce its commitment to growth in the newly formed Capital Atlantic area with the return of industry veteran Sean Johnson as Regional Director.

Johnson (NMLS #476388) brings to Movement nearly 20 years of home financing experience. Just prior to the last four years spent at loanDepot, Johnson held Branch Manager and Market Leader positions with Movement’s DC Metro area-based team until 2018. Formative years in the industry were spent at First Home Mortgage, FitzGerald Financial and MetLife Homes.

Having been ranked in the top 1% of mortgage originators since 2012, Johnson is excited to be returning to Movement, primarily because of their technology investment.

“We are beyond thrilled to have a leader of Sean’s caliber rejoin the Movement family,” says Chris Shelton, Divisional Leader for Movement’s Eastern Sales Division (NMLS #116406). “Finding someone like Sean, who has a heart of a servant for serving his people, is rare. We are overly thrilled to see his new region expand in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland and Delaware.”

Johnson echoed that enthusiasm. “Movement’s leadership from the top down creates a culture that is completely unique in the mortgage industry,” he added. “I am extremely excited and honored to be part of the growth in the Capital Atlantic region.”  

A graduate of California State University/Chico, Johnson will be located in Fairfax, Va.
