Being a good leader and a great mentor are always top of mind for #TeamloanDepot’s Ronni Anchondo. As loanDepot’s director of processing, Ronni joined the company in July 2011 as a processor and was quickly promoted to processing manager, and then again to her current role in just four years.
“I was attracted to loanDepot because of the leadership,” said Ronni. “I worked for Anthony (Hsieh, loanDepot chairman and CEO) at HLC Escrow and LendingTree previously. Those two brands have always been the benchmark by which I measured any company I've worked for. I feel so lucky to have had so much one-on-one time with Anthony back in those days.”
A dedicated associate, Ronni is especially focused on helping other loanDepot team members achieve his or her personal goals. Her favorite moments are seeing others succeed:
“Just this morning, a manager that I’ve worked with for some time was being a great leader,” said Ronni. “Afterwards, I called her and let her know how proud I was of her. She in turn thanked me for my guidance over the years. It was one of those moments when you realize you can make an impact on people’s lives.”
What one thing does Ronni want people to know about working at loanDepot?
“We’re family; I’ve worked with so many great colleagues during my time at loanDepot and feel like I’ve grown up both personally and professionally with them,” Ronni said. “I love seeing everyone’s lives evolve, whether it’s professionally in new roles or personally with marriages and children.
“There is so much opportunity here to help lead and mentor as well as be led and be mentored,” Ronni added. “It’s not just about doing loans. It’s about taking care of people and supporting them in their lives and having an impact on them and their families.”
Asked what advice she would give anyone joining the company, she quickly responded, “The sky’s the limit here!”
