Henry Winkler is the new face of One Reverse Mortgage

Comments Off 11 June 2010

One Reverse Mortgage, CEO Jay Farner The One Reverse Mortgage team is having some very “Happy Days” …as we launch an exciting new advertising campaign with award-winning actor and author Henry Winkler.  Best known for his role as Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli on the long-running Happy Days TV series, Winkler will appear as the ORM spokesperson in our national cable television ads on stations like WGN, Inspiration Network and Lifetime Movie – just to name a few.

The one minute and two minute commercial spots feature Henry, as well as our very own actual clients, explaining why One Reverse Mortgage is the trusted reverse mortgage lender for clients to work with, as well as giving a brief overview on the features and benefits of the program.  The premise of the campaign encourages folks over the age of 62 to get a “Retirement YOUR Way.”

When we began our search for a spokesperson we identified some very important criteria….we had to have someone who is widely recognizable, who has good standing among the public, who exemplifies integrity, and who could connect with folks 62 and older.  Henry has shown through his excellence as an actor, children’s author and family man that he represents all that One Reverse Mortgage is about.

To round out the “Retirement Your Way” Campaign, Henry will be featured throughout the One Reverse Mortgage website  and on our exclusive Guide and DVD.

Henry is a great match for ORM and when you see the commercials we think you’ll agree. To view the commercials, visit our website at and click on the link to the right of Henry’s picture.
