Brian Hale, a seasoned mortgage industry executive with over 40 years of experience, has launched a new consultancy business, Mortgage Advisory Partners (MAP).
MAP’s focus is on the mortgage industry, including mortgage bankers, mortgage brokers, banks, home builders and Realtors to improve their mortgage-related businesses.
The firm’s partners work with executive leadership to develop strategies to assist mortgage-related companies with navigating the challenges of operating and growing their businesses by identifying opportunities to optimize their value.
“Over the last 18 months, I received numerous requests from across the industry to assist in directional guidance of how to expand and increase profits, and to review and make recommendations regarding ongoing operations,” Brian Hale, CEO/senior advisor, says in a release. “As a result, those requests evolved into a consultancy that is today Mortgage Advisory Partners.”
“Now is an interesting time – you have rising interest rates, COVID, compressing margins, an industry full of acquisitions, and more change than ever before,” Hale adds. “Together, these trends require deep experience and a wealth of knowledge to successfully usher leaders and organizations through them. The MAP team can help provide advice and counsel on these topics and many others.”
Under Hale’s leadership, the team is poised to address key areas of focus for the consultancy including:
- Strategic planning to help maximize profits;
- Granular financial and operation analysis;
- Financial planning, management report development and proforma generation outsourcing;
- Production channel and joint venture optimization;
- Talent assessment, support and acquisition; and
- Mergers and acquisitions and monetization strategic support.
Over the course of his long, tenured career, Hale has grown several organizations into top 5 originators and, in many cases, the industry’s largest originators by channel. He has held numerous C-suite positions for some of the most respected companies in the industry including ClosingMark Financial Group – the financing arm of William Lyon Homes, Stearns Lending, MetLife Home Loans, MetLife Bank, Countrywide, Wells Fargo and Fleet Mortgage.
