This year PROGRESS in Lending will continue its rich tradition of recognizing true excellence in mortgage lending. This industry is filled with people and companies dedicated to making the process better, faster and cheaper for all involved. To honor their hard work, we will be offering our six prestigious awards and adding a seventh brand new award as follows …
Our other awards all acknowledge the good work that executives are doing, but we think it’s critically important to recognize separately those people that are making a difference that have been in the business 15 years or less. We need new leaders that are not afraid to step forward and blaze a new trail. We need creativity. We need bold new ideas. As such, for the 4th year PROGRESS in Lending is honoring the Next Gen Leaders.
Applications will be accepted from Monday, January 15, 2024 to Friday, February 16, 2024.
Winners will be announced in March 2024.
Sales, marketing and public relations executives are blazing a trail that is determining the biggest winners in financial services. On the sales side, research from the University of Pennsylvania shows that more than 50% of buyers still seek advice from sales, marketing and public relations executives when making a purchase. These executives work tirelessly to ensure their company/client is a true leader, but they themselves don’t always get recognized. That ends today. For the 5th year in a row, PROGRESS in Lending is recognizing the Top Sales, Marketing and Public Relations Executives that are making the biggest impact.
Applications will be accepted from Monday, February 19, 2024 to Friday, March 22, 2024.
Winners will be announced in April 2024.
