Bill's Background

Prior to Bill’s accident, he was five times named one of the Top 100 Most Influential Mortgage Executives by Mortgage Executive Magazine. He previously served on the Board of Directors at Academy Mortgage Corporation and as the Executive Vice President of National Production. Under Bill’s guidance, Academy grew from being a 130-person regional-based mortgage company to one of the nation’s largest independent mortgage companies, operating in 40 states, employing 2,300 people and generating over $8 billion in annual production in 2015.

Bill was the Waterfield Financial Corporation for 21 year prior to its sale, where he served as Executive Vice President of Production for 10 Western states. During his tenure, he was consistently the highest annual producers in originating mortgages, building the highest producing branch in Waterfield’s history, and developing the Western region into the largest in the company, managing $1 billion in annual production.

“I have recently had the opportunity to hear Bill Bent speak on two different occasions. He spoke to one of the local group of sales professionals and then at our regional conference.

Bill has an amazing story that was incredibly inspirational that everyone in any walk of life would be moved by. He is authentic and connected well with me and the audience.

He also did an excellent job of tailoring the content for the audience so that they would get the most from what he was teaching. I would highly recommend him for any speaking opportunity.”
