Founder & President

In less than ten years, Ken Perlmutter's vision and leadership has taken PERL Mortgage Inc. from a kitchen-table operation to one of the largest and most respected lenders in Illinois.

Perlmutter was born in El Paso, where his father served the military as a dentist ? and later moved to Medway, Mass. He earned his undergraduate and master's degrees (both in electrical engineering) from Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. He moved to the Chicago area to conduct research for Continental Can Co., and then worked in sales for Allen Bradley ? which later became part of Rockwell Automation.

His belief then ? and now ? is that honest, ethical treatment of his clients and employees will reap the greatest returns. That belief has served him well. With a roster of approximately 200 employees and an industry-wide reputation for excellence, PERL Mortgage Inc. has the ability to link clients with hundreds of lenders and mortgage products.
