Primary Residential Mortgage Inc. (PRMI)
has announced the promotion of four of its executives: Tom George as Executive Vice President and Chief Production Officer, Ruth Green as Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, A.J. Swope as Executive Vice President of Secondary Marketing, and Mathew Whitebrook as Senior Vice President of Capital Markets.
“These promotions are reflective of the wealth of experience, dedication to excellence and skillful leadership of these four individuals,” said PRMI Chief Executive Officer and President Dave Zitting. “In order for PRMI to continue on a path of growth and success, it’s critical to have leaders that are united in and guided by our core values, which Tom, Ruth, A.J. and Mat exemplify every day.”
With more than two decades of industry experience, George joined PRMI shortly after it started in 1998. He has worked in loan origination as well as business development, was named CXO of the Year by Utah Business Magazine in 2014 and was promoted from his most recent role of COO to his current position. As Chief Production Officer, George contributes to the strategic growth of PRMI through building and strengthening relationships with the organization’s branches, divisions and business units.
Green has worked in the mortgage business for 25 years, 19 of which have been spent at PRMI. In that time, she has held numerous positions in underwriting, training, business relations, and most recently, was PRMI’s SVP of Operations. In 2014, Utah Business Magazine honored Green as one of Utah’s “30 Women to Watch.” Her focus on improving the organization’s quality of service and product offerings through effective management, communication and technology implementation prepared her to step into her current role of COO, where she assumes responsibility for the day-to-day operations at PRMI.
Swope’s promotion to EVP of Secondary Marketing is a testament to his astute oversight of PRMI’s program administration, pipeline management and business technology strategy. His 20 years of industry experience, including the last 10 years with PRMI, have taught Swope the importance of focusing on quality data, cost reduction and profit enhancement as critical components to the ultimate success of the organization.
Whitebrook assumes the position of SVP of Capital Markets, where he will leverage his talents to develop, monitor and maintain servicing strategy for PRMI. Whitebrook has been with the organization since 2008, and has 18 years of experience working in mortgage finance. His breadth of knowledge and extensive understanding of capital markets allow him to confidently step into his new role, as he helps manage the suite of PRMI products, while mitigating risk and managing margin expectations for the company.
