2021 HW Finance Leader: Marty Bozarth

Marty Bozarth

As the Baird & Warner chief financial officer, Marty Bozarth is leading the company’s financial operations for all lines of business — residential sales, mortgage and title — during a time of both record growth and unexpected challenges. Bozarth’s expert guidance keeps a 165-year-old firm at the top of its game by focusing on operational efficiencies, lowering costs and continuously improving relationships. Baird & Warner’s residential, mortgage and title business lines recorded an annual volume of $11.4 billion in 2020, an increase of 27% from 2019, which eclipsed previous years. Mortgage originations alone spiked 80% between 2019 and 2020.

Last April, as market challenges during the start of the pandemic gripped the housing industry as a whole, Baird & Warner suffered a dramatic 50% decrease in revenue. Bozarth sprang into action to recalibrate the company’s business plan and worked with the executive team to identify ways to eliminate costs and avoid company-wide layoffs.
