Reverse mortgage lender Finance of America Reverse (FAR) has hired author Dan Hultquist as vice president of organizational development.
Joining the firm’s learning and development practice, Hultquist will play a key role in the ongoing development of compelling training, educational tools and materials across the financial planning and real estate communities.
Hultquist wrote the book Understanding Reverse – Simplifying the Reverse Mortgage, which is a comprehensive resource for consumers, mortgage brokers, direct lenders, attorneys, and servicers. It is updated annually to reflect significant industry changes.
Before joining FAR, Hultquist worked at Live Well Financial as vice president of education and organizational development. He has spoken on the topic of reverse mortgages across the US during his training sessions, which have exceeded 25,000 in attendance over the past decade.
Hultquist is also a Certified Reverse Mortgage Professional (CRMP) and co-chairs the Education Committee for the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association (NRMLA). In addition, he teaches education courses that serve as annual prerequisites for CRMPs.
“FAR is committed to ensuring that each client has complete confidence when they incorporate a reverse mortgage loan into their broader retirement roadmap,” said Sherry Apanay, chief development officer at FAR. “Dan is key to that educational process. He brings an unrivaled knowledge of the industry coupled with a unique ability to drive greater awareness and understanding of these products that he customizes for different audiences through his illustrative educational and training programs. He exemplifies our commitment to education.”
“I’m thrilled to rejoin Sherry Apanay, as well as form a team with Learning and Development VP Lorraine Geraci, with whom I’ve worked on multiple industry-level projects,” said Hultquist. “It’s exciting to contribute to a team creating increased consideration of home equity in retirement.”
