Tom George has been promoted to executive vice president and chief production officer, Ruth Green to executive vice president and chief operations officer, A.J. Swope to executive vice president of secondary marketing and Mathew Whitebrook to senior vice president of capital markets at Utah-based lender Primary Residential Mortgage Inc. (PRMI), which funded more than $5.4 billion in home loans in 2017.
George, who previously served as chief operating officer, has more than two decades of industry experience. He joined PRMI shortly after it started in 1998 and has worked in loan origination as well as business development. He was named CXO of the Year by Utah Business Magazine in 2014. As chief production officer, he contributes to the strategic growth of PRMI through building and strengthening relationships with the organization’s branches, divisions and business units, the company says in a release.
Green has worked in the mortgage business for 25 years, 19 of which have been spent at PRMI. In that time, she has held numerous positions in underwriting, training, business relations, and most recently, was PRMI’s senior vice president of operations. In 2014, Utah Business Magazine honored Green as one of Utah’s 30 Women to Watch. Her focus on improving the organization’s quality of service and product offerings through effective management, communication and technology implementation prepared her to step into her current role of COO, where she assumes responsibility for the day-to-day operations at PRMI.
Swope’s promotion to executive vice president of secondary marketing is a testament to his astute oversight of PRMI’s program administration, pipeline management and business technology strategy. His 20 years of industry experience, including the last 10 years with PRMI, have taught him the importance of focusing on quality data, cost reduction and profit enhancement as critical components to the ultimate success of the organization.
Whitebrook assumes the position of senior vice president of capital markets, where he will leverage his talents to develop, monitor and maintain servicing strategy for PRMI. He has been with the organization since 2008 and has 18 years of experience working in mortgage finance. His breadth of knowledge and extensive understanding of capital markets allow him to confidently step into his new role, as he helps manage the suite of PRMI products, while mitigating risk and managing margin expectations for the company.
