Senior Vice President of Mortgage | Fifth Third Bank
“I practically grew up in the residential mortgage business,” David Hilger, senior vice president of mortgage at Fifth Third Bank, says. “My father owned an appraisal company, and in my teens, I began to work with him and very quickly discovered that I love the business.” Today, Hilger is senior vice president of Fifth Third Bank’s mortgage division. He is actively recruiting and cultivating mortgage loan officers throughout Chicagoland. “Fifth Third Bank has such an arsenal of products and services for consumers to choose from, that I know by focusing on keeping our employees happy and adding other committed talent to the roster, we are sure to increase our market share to become top three in short order,” said Hilger. Interestingly, his second job outside of his dad’s business was with Old Kent Bank, which was acquired by Fifth Third Bank 10 years ago. Hilger enjoys interacting with his colleagues, being a part of a progressive growth stage for Fifth Third Bank, and helping people achieve their dreams of homeownership.
When Hilger is not working, he and his wife, Lynn, are actively involved in their three teenagers’ education and sports activities. “My wife’s commitment to our family has made it possible for me to work in a field in which I’m very passionate about and enjoy a variety of extracurricular activities and community service”
