Hartley will work with the reverse leadership and operations team to manage reverse volume related to PRMI branch partners across the nation. He also will cultivate and manage relationships with PRMI loan originators, providing in depth education while helping them to best structure reverse mortgage loans.

“After an extensive search, PRMI and The Sless Group are elated to welcome Christopher Hartley to our growing organization,” said division president Steven J. Sless. “His impressive track record as a top reverse mortgage account executive and his excellent reputation for helping loan originators to better serve their clients 55+ with reverse mortgage loans make Chris the ideal candidate to take our reverse mortgage production to new heights.”

“Having previously hired Christopher into the reverse mortgage business and mentoring him in the early stages of his mortgage career, this is a very proud moment for me personally,” Sless added.

Hartley began his career in store and sales management positions with such companies as Lowe’s Home Improvement, Dollar Tree, Walmart and AT&T. He spent the past five years as a reverse industry account executive with Huron Valley Financial and University Bank, where he was a top reverse account executive.

“I look forward to helping to grow the reverse division of Primary Residential Mortgage by training our branch partners on how and why reverse mortgages can help them to better serve their clients 55+ and their strategic partners,” Hartley said. “It’s also very exciting to play a part in changing the retirement landscape in America – one reverse mortgage loan at a time.”
