When it comes to having fun, #TeamloanDepot knows how to get it done. Recently, our President’s Club members and their guests celebrated at the elegant ocean-front home of our CEO and founder Anthony Hsieh where they dined on incredible Southern California cuisine as they enjoy the memorable view of Newport Harbor.
At loanDepot, the men and women who protect our way of life through military service hold a special place in our hearts. Their individual sacrifices to keep our country safe are enormous, and we’re continuously looking for ways to honor their service.
While March Madness usually refers to men’s college basketball, at loanDepot it’s our CEO Anthony Hsieh’s travel schedule this month. Hsieh, who is highly committed to staying connected to employees at all levels of our company, is logging thousands of miles to share how loanDepot’s proprietary technology is transforming America’s lending landscape.
Reading is one of my many passions. In fact, I’ve read at least two books a month since I was 18 years old. Over the years, as I’ve become more and more involved in the machinations and intricacies of the business world, my appetite for books has become split ─ or rather, balanced ─ between reading for simple pleasure and reading to keep myself abreast of the latest that’s being written about, and for, the business community.
Fresh from his recent coast-to-coast CEO Connect tour, Chairman Anthony Hsieh gets back in the air for his upcoming keynote on Modern Lending: Today & Tomorrow at LendIt USA 2017 tomorrow in New York City. While logging thousands more air miles, Hsieh shared his near- and long-term vision for the company with more than 1,500 #TeamloanDepot associates during his seven city tour.
Being America’s Lender takes thousands of committed licensed lending officers, talent technology experts and, most of all, a dedicated and enthusiastic CEO like our Chairman and Founder, Anthony Hsieh. Logging hundreds of thousands of miles annually, Hsieh regularly travels to loanDepot’s campuses nationwide to meet with TeamloanDepot member teams to share his vision of modern lending and how we can better serve responsible borrowers in our great nation.
During a recent CEO Connect at our Tech campus, I talked about our upcoming multi-million dollar national ad campaign that will launch this spring. I was asked if we planned to make our commitment to ethics part of our brand messaging.
We’re excited to announce Bryan Sullivan, executive vice president and chief financial officer, and Dominick Marchetti, chief technology officer, will join our Chairman and CEO Anthony Hsieh, for the speaker’s line up at LendIt USA 2017 this March. As panelists, Sullivan and Marchetti will share their insights on topics driving today’s and tomorrow’s consumer lending landscape.
Whenever I meet with new loan officers, I take the opportunity to ask a question specifically designed to help them jumpstart their resolve and set the stage for a career of success: “Why is the industry average for originators only three funded loans per month?”
As loanDepot continues its upward momentum as America’s fifth largest retail mortgage lender, #TeamloanDepot associates share their praise for the leadership of our Chairman and CEO Anthony Hsieh. In just seven short years since loanDepot’s launch, Anthony’s visionary guidance is leading us to the $100 billion funding milestone in under 7 years ─ underscoring loanDepot’s growth as a nationally recognized brand, known for integrity, forward thinking and responsible lending.
