New Berlin, Wisconsin, March 6, 2019 Landmark Credit Union has recently made a key addition to its mortgage lending team with the hiring of industry veteran, David Pendley, as the credit union’s new Vice President – Mortgage Lending.

“David brings a wealth of mortgage lending experience to our leadership team,” said Jay Magulski, President and Chief Executive officer. “Under David’s leadership we look forward to further expanding our mortgage program. This includes continuing our commitment to educating potential buyers about the home buying and financing process so our members can feel confident in making the important decisions that will shape their home ownership experience.”

For 33 years David has enjoyed helping people purchase not just a house, but their home, and providing trusted financial advice.
