A division of Success Mortgage Partners, Inc, 1st Financial Reverse is first targeting Florida as well as Georgia, Indiana and Alabama and is hiring in those regions and others.
Loxton, who brings a 20-year career in financial services including work in the reverse mortgage business since 2005, will be managing the southeast expansion with licensing pending in several additional states.
