Rick Grant to Participate in Expert Panel at MBA Annual

For the Second Straight Year, RGA Principal Invited to Sit With Industry Leaders

JIM THORPE, PA--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) -  Rick Grant, principal of Rick Grant & Associates (RGA), a public relations and communications marketing firm that specializes in social media and corporate storytelling, has been invited by Xerox to participate in an expert panel at the Mortgage Bankers Association's 97th Annual Convention to talk about the future of the mortgage industry.

This is the second year that Grant has been invited to sit on a panel that includes Greg Smith, vice president of Xerox Mortgage Services, Xerox customers, journalists and other industry experts. The discussion will be recorded and posted as a podcast to the Xerox website.

"I'm proud to be asked to sit on this panel again," Grant said. "I have a lot of respect for Greg Smith and the company he built. I thought at the time that it was a wise investment for Xerox and that has been the case. 2011 could be a very exciting year for mortgage technology firms. I expect to talk about what I've been hearing in the industry over the course of the last year both from our own clients and from executives I have interviewed for the columns I write for industry trade publications."

MBA's 97th Annual Convention and Expo 2010 is the premier event for real estate industry professionals. Industry leaders from across the country gather to discuss solutions to current business challenges, connect with influential industry experts and work to set the strategic direction that will shape the future of real estate finance. This year's event will be held in Atlanta.
