Bruce Barnes and Jim Cory joined Cherry Creek as managing directors of the reverse mortgage division. Under their leadership, the company intends on expanding its reverse presence in retail, wholesale, and closed loan production.

“Together, Jim and I have built several successful reverse mortgage platforms and have been responsible for funding billions of dollars in reverse mortgage production. It is our plan to make the reverse mortgage division the best place to work and to become a leading lender in the reverse mortgage space,” said Barnes.
