HomeStreet Announces Departure of David Hooston

Wednesday, March 14, 2012 5:09 PM

HomeStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ:HMST) today announced the departure of Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer David E. Hooston, effective March 31, 2012. Mr. Hooston joined HomeStreet in August 2009 to assist in turning around the company, which in February 2012 was recapitalized through an initial public offering.

"David has been an important part of HomeStreet's turnaround team and capital raise," said CEO and President Mark K. Mason. "He came to this company with the knowledge and prior experience necessary to turn around and grow an institution, having accomplished these things previously at ValiCorp Holdings and Placer Sierra Bancshares. With his help, the company experienced three consecutive quarters of profitability before completing our IPO in February 2012. We are grateful for his contributions and his dedication to the company's success.

"We have begun the search process for a new Chief Financial Officer," continued Mr. Mason. "We are pleased that David will assist with the transition of the new CFO."

"It has been a privilege to work with Mark and the rest of the executive team throughout the turnaround and recapitalization process," said David Hooston. "I am confident that HomeStreet will continue its record of success under Mark's leadership."
