Donald W. Ayers, CMB Director, Sales & Marketing
I joined American Savings Life in 2012. Currently my principal duties are assisting with the recruitment of independent agents, annuity product development & enhancement and directing our lending efforts in the state of Texas. I like to create a win-win transaction for American Savings Life and a borrower by concentrating on the proper structure of the transaction. A good deal must be good for both.
I graduated from the University of Idaho with a degree in Finance and a commission in the US Army. After a 3+ year active duty period where I spent tours of duty in Germany and Vietnam, I began my business career with a regional bank in Idaho. I also returned to school and obtained an MBA from Boise State University. I continued service in the National Guard and Reserve until being discharged in 1989 at the rank of Major.
Over the last 40-years I have served with regional banks, mortgage companies and life insurance companies in a variety of capacities including owning my own mortgage company with a son. In 1995 I was awarded the Certified Mortgage Banker (CMB) designation from the Mortgage Bankers Association of America.
I helped, to some degree, my wife Barbara raise 11 children. With our youngest recently married, I like spending quality time with my bride and enjoy “Crowing from our recent empty nest”. Some of my favorite activities include fixing things and working on our orange farm, which I named “Celestial Citrus”.
