Reverse mortgage newcomer Retirement Funding Solutions is boosting its operations team with the hire of Lisa Hatfield, an industry veteran who has most recently worked as a consultant for New Zealand Bank, and previously led retail development for Security 1 Lending.
RFS, which launched earlier this year under the leadership of former S1L president and founder Torrey Larsen, is building its San Diego-based operations and has begun originating reverse mortgages under its new leadership team.
Hatfield will report to David Entrekin in her new role. Entrekin serves as chief operating officer for RFS’s parent company Synergy One Lending.
Her experience spans work with Security One as well as past mortgage work, and she will complete her New Zealand-based assignment this summer to take on the role with RFS.
“Lisa will round out a very committed leadership team, and she fits right into our Core Operating Values, which guides all of our Firm’s activities and execution plans,” Entrekin says. “Lisa is a tireless worker who will be focused on Retirement Funding’s ability to deliver personalized and best in class customer service to our primary internal client, the loan originator, while maintaining integrity in loan quality.”
Hatfield welcomed the new position, including its early growth stage.
“The opportunity for me to advance my career with a team that has a fully aligned set of business objectives is exciting to me,” Hatfield says. “I look forward to playing a part in building a unique and customer-centric company in its early stages of growth. The ability to have a positive impact on how this firm takes shape is a real motivation for me.”
