VP of Business Development Joins Planet Home Lending

Planet Home Lending, LLC, a privately held mortgage lender and servicer founded in 2007, announced that Bill Ervin has joined the company as VP of Business Development supporting the company’s retail originations channel. Planet Home Lending is a privately held, national residential mortgage lender with multiple business channels. The company is an approved originator and servicer for FHA, VA, and USDA as well as a Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae Seller/Servicer, and a full Ginnie Mae Issuer and approved sub-servicer.

Previously, Ervin was Senior Business Development Manager at CrossCountry Mortgage, Inc. and Citibank, N.A. While at Citibank, Ervin launched a partnership channel that drove more than $1 billion in annual builder and Realtor® mortgage referral volume. Ervin brings expertise gained from more than two decades of mortgage banking industry experience at companies ranging from technology start-ups to global banks.

“Ervin is an accomplished mortgage industry executive who’s great at relationship building,” said Michael Dubeck, Planet Financial Group President and CEO. “His unique experiences in sales, business development, and technology will help us continue to grow Planet Home Lending’s consumer-direct business.”

Ervin’s technology background includes co-founding Envision Real Estate Software, Inc., which ABN AMRO Mortgage Group later acquired.

“Planet has a unique value proposition. It’s a ground-floor opportunity for highly productive branches and large-volume loan originators to run a territory or manage an area for a well-funded, mature company that’s pivoting into retail,” Ervin said. “We have experienced, savvy leadership at the helm and the financial backing to grow even in a rising-rate environment.”
