In the spirit of Ron Burgundy, we're kind of a big deal. That is, if you're into mortgage news. But, really, there's some good stuff in here.
SCOTT MATTERN JOINS PRMI TO EXPAND NORTHWEST PRESENCE
Salt Lake City, Utah (October 27, 2014) — Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc. (PRMI), one of the largest retail mortgage lenders in the nation, announced today that Scott Mattern has joined the firm as a regional manager. In this role Mattern will expand the company’s presence in Oregon and southwest Washington, and will recruit one of the most elite teams of mortgage originators in the state.
“I am incredibly excited about the opportunity to be part of the PRMI team,” Mattern said. “This company was founded, and continues to be operated, by former mortgage originators who understand that we are in the business of building relationships. PRMI’s dynamic leadership team, vibrant entrepreneurial spirit and access to unprecedented technology will allow me to serve clients in ways that have never before been possible.”
Prior to joining PRMI, Mattern served as district manager for Guild Mortgage. He turned the company, which had zero market share, into one of the top five retail originators in Oregon and southwest Washington by expanding Guild’s presence to 17 offices and 200 employees within only four years. Mattern also served as a regional manager over five western states for First Horizon Home Loans, which was eventually acquired by MetLife.
“Scott has one of the most successful track records in the region in both retail and wholesale mortgage lending channels, which is a rare accomplishment,” said David Zitting, founder and CEO of PRMI. “After seeing his commitment to his clients and to his profession, it’s no surprise that he has been a top performer for most of his career. We are fortunate to have Scott leading PRMI’s efforts to build our presence in Oregon and the surrounding region.”
In addition to his professional accomplishments, Mattern is actively involved with the Oregon Football Association. The organization reconnects former University of Oregon football players who have moved on to careers in the NFL by encouraging their participation in athletic mentoring programs and sports camps for underprivileged children.
