Reverse mortgage industry software provider ReverseVision announced this week that its President and CEO, John Button, has joined the board of directors for the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association (NRMLA).
Button, who was elected to NRMLA’s board during the organization’s 2016 Annual Meeting and Expo in Chicago last month, brings with him more than 30 years of experience in mortgage and financial services technology and business development.
“John’s strong background in mortgage technology and deep experience in compliance make him an ideal candidate to serve on the NRMLA board,” said Joseph P. DeMarkey, strategic business leader of Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC, who serves as co-chair of the NRMLA board of directors.
“I look forward to working with him and the rest of our board to make further progress in our mission to educate regulators, policy makers and consumers on the many benefits of reverse mortgage loans and how they can help older Americans live comfortably in retirement,” DeMarkey added.
Button joined ReverseVision as president and CEO in 2012. Prior to that, he served as chief operating officer for Del Mar DataTrac, a leading innovator in mortgage lending automation. Additionally, Button has also held senior executive positions with 1PS Sendero, RF/Spectrum Decision Science Corporation and IBM.
This year, Button was named a 2016 Vanguard Award winner by mortgage industry publication HousingWire in recognition of his leadership and long-term contributions to the mortgage banking industry, including his key role in changing the tide of public perception when it comes to reverse mortgages.
“I deeply appreciate this opportunity to learn from the industry titans who make up this year’s board of directors,” Button said in a press release. “ReverseVision plays a unique role by providing an infrastructure that serves all industry participants, from lenders to brokers to investors. I hope to bring a different and useful perspective to the board and assist NRMLA with its efforts to influence industry change and growth.”
