One notable quote from the Housing Wire article announcing Steven Horne's ouster was this:
“It appears Wingspan does not care for their employees, families nor the community as they also did not inform Brevard County workforce of the layoffs,” one former Wingspan employee at the Melbourne location told HousingWire.
The former employee, who wished to remain anonymous, also told HousingWire that Wingspan created a hostile work environment in Melbourne, which caused clients to abandon the extension of their contracts, leading to the layoffs.
Executives Justin Belter, Melanie Pellegrino, Jason Dickard, and several others (including Director Kevin Conn) all left right before Steven Horne was ousted. They all left around the same time. Suddenly. Out the Blue. Now that sounds like these guys were PUSHED OUT but who knows. That's a strange way to leave all of a sudden. Especially around the same time. From what I heard the bankers wanted entirely new leadership so they most likely were forced out.
Can Anyone say "POETIC JUSTICE" and Can I Get An "AMEN"!
Looks like Justin Belter, Jason Dickard and another Wingspan Executive named Cesar Hernandez have hurriedly started another company called Agility 360 in Carrollton, TX with a fancy website and they are putting out 'press releases' notifying the public they have hired 'each other'..lol. The website is so new it hasn't even been rated by my security software. After reading all of the fancy wording about what this company does I pretty much gather it does a whole lot of nothing.
According to the Agility 360 Website the company --> "resolves and prevents operational challenges for banks, lenders, insurers and investors resulting from economic fluctuations, regulatory demands, and industry re-positioning. Our unique engagement model increases operational adaptability while reducing financial, operational and compliance risk or exposure. "
And again I don't know about you but that sounds like they are doing a whole lot of 'nothing'. Pretty much sitting pretty in jobs where they try to give 'advice' about something they know 'nothing about'. Maybe the flashy website and over the top language will work for them. The poor bastards just might make a good go of it. They are going after big banks after all, and white folks with money aren't known for being the smartest tools in the shed. Some are quite stupid in fact. Just look at how many have been fooled out of large sums of money by Nigerian hustlers. So the large corporations just may send a lot of business their way. They probably won't care that these so-called 'experts' started this company after damn near driving their last company into financial ruin.
