1st Reverse Mortgage USA is seeking to grow its forward business channel with the promotion of Jeff Ausman to director of business development.

Ausman, whose appointment to the new role is effective immediately, will be tasked to lead the recruitment and development of traditional forward loan officers for the forward business channel 1st Mortgage Solutions USA.

"Jeff is a dynamic leader, caring sales professional, and team player with a proven sales growth track record for meeting B2B and B2C customer needs," said Dan Harder, vice president at 1st Reverse Mortgage USA. "His clients trust him, crediting his dedication to customer service for their satisfaction and repeat business. Our whole team respects Jeff for his significant contributions. We congratulate him on this well-deserved promotion."

In additional, Ausman will work to grow and expand the 1st Mortgage Outsource Platform. Developed for banks and credit unions, the platform offers FHA, VA, USDA, and conventional loans as well as reverse mortgages and home equity conversion mortgage for purchase loans.

"Many times financial institutions struggle to comply with new regulations. 1st Reverse has been serving community banks and credit unions since 2004. We know the challenges small and medium sized local institutions encounter attempting to offer a variety of mortgage products to their customers," Ausman said. "That's precisely why we developed the 1st Mortgage Outsource Platform. We assist banks and credit unions in meeting the needs of their depositors. It's important for financial institutions to be able to offer private label mortgage programs to satisfy customers and remain competitive and profitable."

1st Reverse Mortgage USA is a division of Cherry Creek Mortgage.
