Philadelphia-based Radian Guaranty Inc., the mortgage insurance (MI) subsidiary of Radian Group Inc., has added Nelson Ramos as account manager to its growing sales team.
Ramos brings with him more than 20 years of prior experience in account management and relationship building and will be focused solely on enhancing Radian's commitment to the Hispanic community, says the company.
He previously served on the board of directors for the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) New Jersey chapter and was the president and founder of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) Tri-State Chapter.
In 2013, Radian signed a two-year strategic partnership with NAHREP. Under the agreement, Radian is developing a nationwide training program that educates NAHREP member agents and lenders about private MI through on-demand training, face-to-face sessions, and video and interactive webinars so they can, in turn, better inform Hispanic consumers, Radian explains.
"According to the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies, Latinos are expected to constitute 40 percent of the 17 million new households formed from 2010 to 2025," says Ramos. "My role is to ensure that the Latino community has the information, tools and resources to realize the dream of homeownership."
