has announced the appointment of Joe Langner as president. Langner will lead the company to achieve its strategic vision of establishing HECM and private reverse mortgages as lending portfolio staples alongside traditional and government loans. Langner has nearly 30 years of executive experience, driving growth at mortgage technology and software companies.
“Joe’s proven ability to satisfy industry and customer needs make him the right person to lead ReverseVision as it transforms reverse mortgage lending,” said ReverseVision Chief Executive Officer John Button. “He is the best person in the industry to execute our strategic vision of bringing reverse mortgage lending into operational coexistence in the broader mortgage market using our cloud-based, API-enabled lending technology platform.”
A former executive vice president and chief sales officer at Ellie Mae, Langner executed the firm’s initial public offering in 2011 and considerably grew its market share during his tenure. Most recently, Langner served as chief executive officer at Blue Sage
, a cloud-based, digital lending platform for retail, wholesale and correspondent lenders. His other notable positions include president at PCLender, a digital mortgage technology provider and Fiserv affiliate; executive vice president and general manager at Sage, the global market leader in operations management technology for small and medium businesses; and senior vice president at Dun and Bradstreet, a global provider of business decisioning data and analytics.
“Today, HECMs and private reverse mortgage programs are vastly underutilized despite market need because, until recently, there has not been an operationally pragmatic way for lenders to integrate reverse products alongside their forward offerings,” said Langner. “I’ve joined ReverseVision because their innovative vision to integrate reverse products into the mortgage ecosystem is exactly what borrowers and lenders need.”
