“We are excited to welcome Dan as an official part of the First Community Mortgage family,” said FCM CEO, Keith Canter. “He has long been a friend – and sometimes a friendly competitor – to FCM and has been helping us strategize toward our next phase of growth, bringing even more value to our team, our referral partners and our customers. I look forward to working alongside Dan and know you will too.”

Prior to joining FCM, Smith was President of Mortgage for National Bank of Commerce, which originates mortgages in 50 states and is now part of CenterState Bank.

An entrepreneur beyond the mortgage industry, Smith has grown multiple companies with annual origination volumes ranging from $500mm to $6 Billion. He is Chairman and was principal investor of Insite Managed Solutions, which provides Sigma-based analytics strategies, training, and consulting services to Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies.

Smith is a 1989 graduate of the University of Miami School of Business, with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing. He is Chairman-elect of the University’s President’s Council and served on the Advisory Board for The Launch Pad, a collaboration between the University of Miami, Blackstone Charitable Foundation and The Kauffman Group, which promotes entrepreneurship for students and alumni.
