VERICO is proud to support the Mortgage Awards of Excellence celebrating leadership, achievement and the pursuit of distinction in Canada’s mortgage industry.
The new awards event will take place May 3, 2018.
VERICO will be a key sponsor of the awards event and President, Albert Collu, is also Chair of the Mortgage Awards of Excellence Committee.
These awards represent a collaborative industry initiative created to exemplify the spirit and inclusiveness of mortgage professionals from across the country.
“I am honoured to Chair this fantastic initiative. The industry committee and I are extremely excited about these awards. They represent the pinnacle of professional achievement in our industry and allow individuals the opportunity to recognize the contributions, commitment and excellence of their colleagues,” says Albert.
“It is absolutely wonderful to see a complete alignment from various industry leaders and stakeholders. The Mortgage Awards of Excellence Committee is comprised of mortgage brokerages, networks, lenders, mortgage insurers, associations, and technology organizations, all of which have set aside the competitive forces of their day to day businesses to work in partnership,” adds Albert.
It is with this in mind that the committee will focus on: 1) establishing an awards nomination and selection process which maintains objectivity and integrity and 2) operating as a not for profit event (net proceeds will be reinvested in the event to reduce future costs and/or donated to charitable organizations).
