Kyle J. Snider

Senior Vice President | National Underwriting Manager

Kyle J. Snider, SVP – National Underwriting Manager, manages and develops the credit requirements for Amerant Mortgage and oversees all aspects of the underwriting department. He started with Amerant Mortgage in March of 2021. Before this, he spent 20+ years in the real estate mortgage industry in one fashion or another. Underwriting has been a significant part of that career. As a graduate of the University of Phoenix with a BSA in Information Technology, Kyle’s career path has gone a very different direction. However, the course of study has helped him in my daily mortgage operations. It allows him to be the first line of defense when an issue relating to hardware or software occurs.

Kyle loves to be on the open road in his RV, plotting his next mountain bike ride or kayaking adventure in his spare time. He enjoys being outside doing stuff, whether working around my house or enjoying the destination in my RV. Kyle is enjoying the world and culture around him. He finds inspiration in everyday life; each day is a new day to learn something and overcome a new challenge. “Change is life’s great adventure, and those who embrace it will live to their fullest potential. Just as I am inspired by everyday life, working here at Amerant Mortgage allows me to support and learn from those I work with. It is not often that one can enter a position and learn or teach equally. Amerant Mortgage is built on a team-oriented platform that inspires our employees to achieve their highest potential.”
