Inlanta Mortgage Manager’s Meeting

Every year, Inlanta branch managers gather to discuss issues and developments in the mortgage industry and to share success stories and best practices. This year, the meeting kicked off with an exciting promotion announcement from CEO John Knowlton and President Nicholas DelTorto. Read more about the promotion announcement here.

Manager’s Meeting Sessions

Each year, the corporate management staff try to present on topics that are near and dear to Inlanta managers’ hearts – this year’s overall focus was on sales growth. Addressing the topic of sales in one session, a panel of Inlanta’s top producers discussed what they feel works well for their business and suggested tactics for others to improve their production. In another session led by Business Development Manager Peter Salamone, legendary motivational speaker Jim Rohn was frequently cited and showcased with advice on how to approach sales and sales leadership. Yet another sales focused session led by Chief Operating Officer Paul Buege discussed big data and how to use the data resources available to you to grow a mortgage branch and expand your Realtor partnerships.

The final session of the day was lead by Mitch Kider from Weiner Brodsky & Kider PC from Washington, D.C., Kider is a lawyer specializing in all things CFPB. Kider discussed a number of issues related to mortgage regulations and fielded questions from the managers. Despite the less than exciting topic of Kider’s presentation, the managers felt it was a necessary and timely component of the day’s presentations. Regulatory concerns and proper adherence to rules are present at every layer of the company.

Collaborative Nature of Inlanta Meetings

One of the most enviable qualities of Inlanta Mortgage is its culture and the level of camaraderie between managers located across the country from each other. At the cocktail hour, managers interacted with each other and Inlanta administrative staff to discuss additional issues, successes and best practices that may not have been touched on during the formal sessions.

In his role as the President of the Wisconsin Mortgage Banker’s Association (WMBA), Nicholas DelTorto was proud to welcome mortgage bankers from across the state to the WMBA’s 40th Annual Real Estate Conference and its all-star line up of speakers.

DelTorto said, “It has been an honor to be president and part of the leadership of the WMBA this past year. During this past year I hope we have made a difference for the mortgage industry and our association. Our big annual event, the WMBA spring conference,  was an overwhelming success and special as it was our 40th! The WMBA achieved some great things this past year including helping to pass mortgage satisfaction legislation, collaborating and establishing a renewed relationship with National MBA including education, membership discounts for both association membership and advocacy both on a state and federal level. I had the opportunity to attend the National MBA Advocacy conference in Washington and represent the WMBA speaking on behalf of my industry colleagues to our elected officials on Capitol Hill.

I feel privileged to help further our mission to help our real estate finance industry rebuild our relationships with all stakeholders, so we can continue to play our vital role in helping Americans achieve the dream of homeownership and sustain the communities in which we all live, work and play.”
