LINDON, Utah, July 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Low VA Rates recently gained a great addition to their team in the form of a new vice president of sales. Timothy Lewis is taking up the position alongside President Eric Kandell who has been the CEO of Low VA Rates since he founded the company. With a thriving market and a highly qualified team, Low VA Rates has found itself expanding its borders. This has included adding a new building to their location to accommodate unprecedented growth, part of which is the addition of military veteran Timothy Lewis.
As a company dealing primarily with VA loans, having a veteran on board as an integral leader is an irreplaceable asset. Tim Lewis has served on active duty as an enlisted soldier and in the National Guard and Reserves as an officer for a total of 22 years, but that isn't the only noteworthy accomplishment on his military resume. Among several military awards, Lewis received the Bronze Star Medal as the commander of 167 soldiers that transported over 5.8 million gallons of fuel to Iraqi citizens and coalition forces, resulting in the longest uninterrupted access to power in that area up to that point. In support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, transporting any amount of fuel in this part of the world was not an easy nor safe task.
In addition to his military experience and accomplishments, Lewis has also been in the mortgage industry for 25 years, primarily managing sales. In short, he is the perfect man for the job.
In fact, Eric Kandell, President of Low VA Rates, said of Lewis joining the team, "What more can I say about Major Tim Lewis? His decorated military career and mortgage resume speak loud and clear. He is one of the country's finest! Our company has grown exponentially year over year without Tim, and I am confident that with his influence and expertise, our growth curve will become even steeper. I am also very excited to have our clients, the men and women of the U.S. military, benefit from Tim's experience and passion."
Lewis already has several plans in place for increasing sales and strengthening the company's relationship with its clients. Lewis believes that "dedication to the relentless pursuit of perseverance is what will provide us our distinction and separation from the competition." Low VA Rates is excited for this new change and will continue to provide excellent service for the men and women of the U.S. military.
