Edward L. Robinson has been named SVP and head of Fifth Third Mortgage, according to an announcement from Fifth Third Bancorp. In his new position, Robinson will be responsible for overseeing all mortgage-related functions at Fifth Third and will report to Chad Borton, EVP and head of the Consumer Bank with the bank.

Robinson’s most recent position was with PHH, one of the top 10 mortgage originators in the nation, as SVP. In that position, he led servicing operations for a portfolio of more than 1.1 million loans and $234 billion through nearly 1,500 employees and contractors. Before serving as SVP with PHH, he was VP of originations.

“We are very pleased to add a leader of Ed’s caliber to Fifth Third. He has consistently demonstrated a solid track record of success in a variety of challenges and roles,” Borton said. “He brings extensive mortgage expertise and a strong financial and operational skillset that will directly enhance and accelerate our ability to grow the mortgage business.”

Prior to working at PHH, Robinson held various positions of increasing responsibility with Genworth Financial and General Electric. He also served 15 years in the U.S. Army as a Special Operations team leader, during which time he successfully completed elite technical and leadership training and completed four combat tours operating in 15 countries.

“I am excited to join the leadership team at Fifth Third,” Robinson said. “I have always respected Fifth Third as a competitor and its level of commitment to the Mortgage business. I am confident I can make an immediate contribution and help the Bank fully capitalize on its growth prospects in both the purchase and refinance markets.”
