NewDay USA Names Garrison Foster Senior Vice President
Senior Mortgage Banking Expert and Founder of Veterans Association for Homeownership
March 5, 2018 – FULTON, MD – One of our nation’s top ten VA lenders, NewDay USA, has hired Garrison Foster as SVP to lead NewDay USA’s Purchase home loan division, which offers active-duty service members, veterans, and their families the ability to buy a home with their VA benefits.
Foster brings nearly 20 years of experience in financial services to NewDay after helping to build and lead the purchase business at Veterans United and Bridgeview Bank. He has successfully facilitated efforts that allowed more than 250,000 veterans to obtain loans for new home purchases.
As a United States Marine Corps Veteran, Foster is a strong advocate for military families and he strengthens NewDay’s mission to help servicemembers and retirees access their VA benefits. His education and activism within the veteran community has raised awareness of VA benefits – with an emphasis on home ownership, financial literacy and protection from disreputable lenders.
Foster’s work includes founding the Veterans Association for Homeownership, VAhome.org, a non-profit organization to help people better understand and receive their VA benefits.
He has spoken before Congress on numerous occasions in support of the need for simplified access to VA benefits. In 2016, Foster helped champion the effort to add veterans to the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) reporting, creating more transparency in VA lending transactions.
“Garrison brings senior level talent and drive to our mission of helping veterans receive the financial services they need and the VA home loan benefits they deserve,” said Rear Admiral Thomas Lynch, Executive Chairman of NewDay USA. “We are delighted to have Garrison on board,” Lynch added.
“Garrison will be a real partner in building NewDay into the #1 VA mortgage banking company in the nation to assist veterans in taking advantage of their valuable VA benefits to purchase a home. It is an honor to have a Marine combat veteran leading this effort,” said Rob Posner, CEO NewDay USA.
“It’s a real privilege to join an organization that shares my passion to help veterans achieve their financial goals through home ownership,” said Foster. “This is an exciting opportunity for me to help NewDay grow in its ability to serve veterans and their families.”
