Former divisional sales leader for Liberty Home Equity Solutions, George Vrban, has taken a new executive sales position at one of Florida’s top reverse mortgage brokers, PS Financial Services.
Effective November 1, Vrban joined Coral Gables, Fla.-based PS Financial Services as the company’s new Executive Vice President of Sales, PS Financial Services Owner and Principal Phil Stevenson told RMD in an email.
Vrban brings to his new position seven years of reverse mortgage industry experience, most recently with Genworth/Liberty, where he served as the Southeast Central Reverse Mortgage Divisional Sales Leader. In this capacity, Vrban ran the southeast and central territory in the retail lender space for the last four years.
Originally coming from the retail broker space, Vrban told RMD in an email that he was excited about joining an “up-and-coming company” in this segment of the industry.
“Phil Stevenson has a tremendous team and back office staff already in place,” Vrban said. “I am just hoping to take them to another level and offer my expertise and experience. I have known Phil for the last four years and what Phil Stevenson brings to the table is his drive to succeed and passion for the HECM program.”
The business relationship between Vrban and Stevenson dates back to when the two worked at Genworth, before Stevenson opened PS Financial in 2012.
“As a top producing originator, I focused on building a company that is geared towards the originators, which is the key to us being the #1 broker in Florida this year, according to Reverse Market Insight,” Stevenson said. “George embodies that philosophy of taking care of the frontlines above all else, which is why his teams were always high producing teams. As a veteran of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, I know wars are won in the trenches, and in our industry the frontline is personified by the originator.”
Through August, PS Financial Services has endorsed 137 Home Equity Conversion Mortgages year-to-date in 2015, ranking within the top-35 reverse mortgage lenders overall in terms of volume, according to recent industry data tracked by Reverse Market Insight. With the addition of Vrban, the company plans to further its growth strategy in the remainder of 2015 and beyond.
“Our vision is a world where people have a retirement that is filled with security, dignity and peace of mind, both financially and physically,” Stevenson said. “They deserve better and they deserve a financially stable retirement. Now together, George and I can help make the lives of more originators better than ever as we fulfill our vision.”
