New York, NY — January 3, 2018  — Planet Home Lending, LLC, a privately held mortgage lender and servicer, announces that Kimberly Grandy has joined the company as vice president of human resources.

Grandy’s experience includes two decades in extraordinary leadership and management positions with expertise in talent acquisition, recruiting, retention, compensation, mediation, performance and project management.

“Kimberly is a high-energy, results-oriented leader with an entrepreneurial attitude,” said Planet Home Lending CEO and President Mike Dubeck. “She’s critical to our mission of being the employer of choice in mortgage banking.”
