SAN ANTONIO – USAA Federal Savings Bank (USAA FSB) has promoted Herbie Huesman to senior vice president of real estate, following four years of executive roles within the bank. Huesman will report to USAA FSB President Paul Vincent and continue to be based in the company’s Tampa office.
Most recently, Huesman served as the interim general manager for real estate, where he oversaw expansion and updates to USAA’s mortgage lineup to help members continue to achieve their homebuying goals in a changing economic climate. Huesman’s appointment comes as the bank seeks to increase lending in the year ahead.
"Herbie has been instrumental in driving our strategy over the last year, drawing on his extensive industry experience to help strengthen our offerings,” said Vincent. "His expertise and passion to serve our members make him the right person to lead our real estate lending business into the future.”
Huesman joined USAA in 2019 to lead the bank’s capital markets and real estate operations teams.

George Hehemann, a recipient of the Legion of Merit, Defense Superior Service Medal, and Bronze Star. Huesman holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame.
“USAA’s mission to serve the financial needs of our members is essential when it comes to home ownership, given it that a house is the largest purchase most people ever make,” said Huesman. “I am proud to lead a team dedicated to helping members at such a critical time of their lives.”
