Eight years ago, Bill Giambrone, Don Calcaterra, Jr. and David Wind founded the Community Home Lenders Association (CHLA), a national group of smaller independent mortgage banks (IMBs). The goal was to give community-based mortgage lenders and servicers — and the consumers they serve — a distinctive voice and an effective advocacy impact with federal policymakers.
