Prior to joining AAG, Zepfel held leadership positions at Bank of America, AXA Equitable and Wells Fargo. While at Bank of America, he made operational improvements and delivered sustainable growth in the retail sales division. At AXA Equitable, he received his Series 7, Series 66, and health/life insurance licenses. At Wells Fargo, he served as a Senior Mortgage Underwriter.

“The reverse mortgage loan is an extremely useful product that’s critical to solving the income shortfall felt by baby boomers nearing retirement,” said Zepfel. “There is a large gap between just sustaining yourself and having a thriving retirement. AAG allows baby boomers to bridge that gap with a reverse mortgage which is exciting for me. As VP of Operations, I plan to build the best team I can. It’s really the people on the team that make the company. And then maintain their excitement about AAG’s future.”
