On Wednesday, December 1, Garth Graham, senior partner from the STRATMOR Group will be joining the next upcoming episode of Mortgage Leadership Outlook, hosted by Andrew Berman.
Garth Graham, a 30-year mortgage banking veteran and digital pioneer, can help your company succeed in any kind of market. At STRATMOR, Graham manages the company’s merger and acquisition activities, while providing strategies for some of the largest independent and bank-owned mortgage lenders in the country. In his 30 years of mortgage banking, Graham has worked with a variety of companies, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to budding startups. He also managed two of the most successful e-commerce platforms, including mortgage.com for retail mortgages and Interfirst for the wholesale channel. Additionally, Graham was an executive at Top 5 lender ABN-AMRO Mortgage before its $9 billion sale to Citigroup in March 2007, closing before the market downturn. Good timing!
While COVID-19 curtailed his in-person appearances, Graham filled his no-travel time with fostering rescue dogs. They may not appreciate his mortgage insights or laugh at his jokes, but they do appreciate the long walks on the beach near his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
In this week’s episode, the gentlemen plan on discussing the two big P’s on everybody’s mind this season: profitability and purchase business. As inflation and home prices creep higher and higher, how can lenders fuel more purchase business? Can technology remedy all productivity issues? As the market cools down, will we see the industry consolidate? Who can we expect to be the acquisition targets and who will be the acquisition suitors?
Join in on the conversation with Graham and Berman as they discuss these topics and more. Log on to the NMP Facebook page and post your questions in the comments section. Our guest and co-hosts will be answering questions live at 4 P.M. EDT, Wednesday, Dec. 1.
