ReverseVision Inc. announced that Rob Katz has joined the company as executive vice president of sales. Rob Katz brings over 15 years’ of mortgage technology, mortgage industry experience and contacts to ReverseVision. “Reverse mortgages provide an excellent way for retirees to tap into the equity of their homes to provide for either day-to-day necessities or to serve as a financial safety net,” said Katz. “I’m excited to be a part of a company that plays such an important role in supporting this industry."
Katz’ prior experience includes serving as chief information officer for a publicly traded mortgage banker that funded more than $2 billion annually, and various executive positions with DataTrac, an industry leading forward mortgage loan origination system, including EVP Sales and ultimately president before selling that company to Ellie Mae two years ago.
“We believe strongly that forward lenders should be expanding their portfolios to include reverse mortgages,” said Jeff Birdsell, ReverseVision’s product manager. “Rob’s experience working with both a lender and a loan origination system will bring additional insights to our customer’s businesses.”
