September 28, 2011

Radian Guaranty Inc., the mortgage insurance (MI) subsidiary of Radian Group Inc., has announced that it has expanded its sales force with the addition of eight sales representatives in key locations across the U.S. “Since the beginning of the year, Radian has signed over 200 new customers. It’s important we have experienced industry professionals in key markets to continue our success in developing new partnerships and in growing market share with our existing customers,” said Brien McMahon, chief franchise officer at Radian. “This, along with the recent launch of our new PowerPak of programs, pricing and products, positions us even more strongly to take advantage of recent market dynamics, such as the planned GSE and FHA loan limit rollback that have led to an increase in demand for MI—Radian is stepping to the forefront, competing for that business.”
