About Me
Hello , my name is Alan Hill and I currently work for Prime Mortgage Lending in Apex, NC as the VP of secondary marketing. My education and experience couldn’t be further from my current responsibilities; however, I’m having a pretty good time and learning more than I ever thought I’d know about the mortgage industry, so all is well. I earned my undergraduate degree in International Studies at the Virginia Military Institute. I later went into the military and spent three incredible years as an Airborne Ranger with the 1/75th Ranger Battalion in Savannah, Georgia. Having the opportunity to do some crazy things that most only read about or see in movies definitely made for some of the best and worst of times. Unfortunately, some not so smooth landings led to three knee operations and ultimately an honorable medical discharge. I really wasn’t sure what direction to move next. After all, I had two bad wheels and spent the last several years learning how to jump out of planes (or not as the case may be) and how to inflict swift, immediate, and lethal damage to PPE (in this case it’s people, property and equipment). Type that into a job search engine and see what pops up! A few months later I was very fortunate to land a job as an assistant superintendent for Pulte Homes in Orlando. I was surrounded by incredibly smart people who enjoyed sharing not just their time but more importantly, their knowledge. I’m not the sharpest picket on the fence but I do learn pretty fast and I have a very solid work ethic. Before too long I became a master builder, then a land developer, then director of land development, then VP of acquisitions and development. In 2002, Pulte transferred me to Raleigh to take over A&D for the Raleigh division. I enjoyed two great years with the company in Raleigh until another door opened. In 2004, Shea Homes (a large private builder) recruited me to open up a new division for them in Raleigh as their division president. This was easily the most challenging, exciting and rewarding job that I’ve ever head. Again, I was extremely lucky to be surrounded by some of the smartest people in the business. Unfortunately, as they say, “timing is everything”. Our forte was 2nd and 3rd move-up, semi-custom homes. We got out of the gate pretty well, earning an operating profit by our third year and bringing in almost 40M in revenue in 2007. However, the market was imploding at a rapid pace and we had all our eggs in the high end (wrong end) of the market. We were in the process of segmenting our business but simply couldn’t outrun the decline. In May of 2008, the company consolidated operations with another division. This left me, my management team and many support personnel to seek other opportunities. In January of 2009, I was fortunate enough to land my current opportunity with Prime Mortgage Lending. The company has had several years of fantastic growth and was expanding their brokerage operations to include lending. We have just recently closed our first loan, so this is a pretty exciting time for the company. Again, I’m extremely fortunate to be surrounded by very smart people who enjoy helping others grow. I married my best friend from high school (Jodie) who is still my best friend today and the love of my life not to mention the nicest person I’ve ever met. We’ve been married for 18 wonderful years and we have two fantastic kids; Hunter (12), Hannah (11) and two wonderful golden doodles. I enjoy pretty much anything that is challenging and keeps me moving, learning and growing. I just finished my first year of my post graduate education at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School where I’m pursuing my MBA. This definitely keeps me moving, growing and learning! My two favorite quotes and for me, they couldn’t be more true: “The only way to be satisfied is to do great work, and the only way to do great work, is to love what you do.” Steve Jobs “Far better to dare might things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat.” Theodore Roosevelt 1899.
