AUSTIN, March 10, 2022 – Following a year of record-breaking financial performance and loan production, last month Amplify Credit Union named Jackie York as Chief Financial Officer.
York brings a wealth of experience in mortgage lending and commercial real estate finance to her role at Amplify. She joined the credit union in early 2021 as Vice President of Finance & Accounting, and quickly established herself as a growth-oriented strategist and effective team leader.
“We looked all around the country for the right CFO to lead Amplify through our next stage of growth, and it became clear that individual was already within our organization,” said Kendall Garrison, Amplify Chief Executive Officer. “Jackie’s unique ability to combine technical talent with a passion for people is already delivering value for our accounting team and it will be crucial as we continue to grow in the future.”
Amplify delivered the strongest year of financial performance in the credit union’s 50+-year history in 2021. That included originating more than $1B in mortgage loans and growing the portfolio of loans serviced for others above the $1B mark, ending the year with more than $2.7B in assets under management. Of those loans sold to and serviced for others, Amplify has added more than $700M in high-quality earning assets to the balance sheets of credit unions around the country.
Success is going to require fortitude and creativity, and I'm excited to lead the team in delivering that.”—Jackie York, Chief Financial Officer
Garrison continued, “At Amplify, our economic engine is mortgage & commercial lending supported by affordable deposit gathering and excellence in loan servicing. Jackie’s expertise in mortgage accounting will be instrumental in fueling that engine, and her quality-driven approach will support Amplify’s ability to achieve that growth in responsible, sustainable ways.”
Prior to joining Amplify, York worked in senior accounting roles at a multi-channel mortgage lender with 80+ branches and at the nation’s largest publicly traded investment REIT for student housing. She spent her early career in public accounting and has been a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) for 19 years.
“There has never been a more exciting time to be in financial services,” said York. “At Amplify, we’re supporting the surging Texas real estate market; taking on big banks and fintechs by eliminating all banking fees; and providing access to capital for small business owners. Success is going to require fortitude and creativity, and I’m excited to lead the team in delivering that.”
