As the Regional Vice President of APM’s Northwest region, Les Bedford takes an originator-centric approach to manage his team. That’s because he understands the urgency and importance of the customer-facing experience that originators must deliver. With that in mind, Les strives hard to make sure his branch managers and loan officers shine every day.
Les started in 2019 with APM, though his experience in the mortgage industry spans more than 40 years. During that time he has served as a board member and president of the Washington Mortgage Lenders Association and as a board member of the Washington Mortgage Bankers Association (aka Seattle Mortgage Bankers Association)
For Les, the mortgage industry is a family affair. He and his wife have worked together in the field for most of their careers.
