Schaff is bank's new Mortgage Loan Origination Manager

John Schaff was recently appointed Vice President and Mortgage Loan Origination Manager by First National Bank Alaska's Board of Directors.

Schaff oversees the bank's Mortgage Loan origination staff. He assists mortgage loan originators in their efforts to create and deepen relationships with their customers and makes sure mortgage loans are processed efficiently.

"Our bank has earned a solid reputation and is filled with tremendous talent," Schaff said. "I'm happy to be here and to help Alaskans reach their real estate financing goals day in, day out."

Owner of a degree in agricultural and resource economics from the University of California-Davis, Schaff started his banking career a decade ago as a mortgage loan originator. He's worked in bank branch environments and as part of a national real-estate company. He transitioned into mortgage loan origination management in 2007.

"Satisfied customers are our crowning achievement," Schaff said. "I want our customers to know and feel that we're doing all we can for them."
