Inlanta Mortgage President Installed as President of WMBA

Inlanta Mortgage is pleased to announce its President Nicholas DelTorto was installed as the president of the Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Association (WMBA) on Friday, June 14.

The new officers and board of directors, along with general membership and guests, attended an installation breakfast and meeting at Country Springs Hotel in Pewaukee, with several Inlanta employees attending to support DelTorto.

The guest speaker was Secretary Peter Bildsten of the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions (DFI). Secretary Bildsten spoke on a variety of topics relevant to the mortgage industry, including how well the housing market is doing in Wisconsin and the high quality of mortgage originations in Wisconsin compared to those of the nation. He also touched on regulation and licensing updates, including how the DFI is working with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on consumer complaints and audits.

“I am honored to be a part of the leadership team at the WMBA and look forward to working to accomplish the goals and initiatives set by the organization,” President Nicholas DelTorto said. “The WMBA had a great year under past President Dave Rouse’s leadership. The work of the executive committee has set the stage for improved membership value and a more active membership voice on the federal and state issues. During my term I am committed to continuing the standards that have been set by WMBA.”

Along with DelTorto, John Inzeo was installed as secretary/treasurer and Marcia Howe was installed as president-elect for the 2013-2014 term.

Shaping the Future of Our Industry

Inlanta Mortgage recently attended an educational seminar focusing on the differences between Generation X and Generation Y and how the mortgage and real estate industry must recognize how these generations are influenced with regards to home buying and financing. The training session was presented by Matthew Ferrara, organized by the Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Education Foundation, and sponsored by Inlanta Mortgage.  Inlanta is proud to be a supporter of the Education Foundation and their efforts in support of the future of the Mortgage Industry.

The Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Education Foundation(WMBEF) is dedicated to promoting, conducting, and creating educational activities for the mortgage banking industry. In addition, the foundation seeks to encourage, recruit, and promote the advancement of minorities in the real estate finance industry. Furthermore, the foundation provides scholarship funds to students focusing on real estate finance at accredited colleges, universities, and technical schools.  Since 1989, the Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Association has awarded over 35 scholarships to men and women pursuing careers in the mortgage banking and real estate industries.

It is important to make sure we are helping those currently in the mortgage industry and those who will be the future. The WMBA does a great job of keeping current mortgage professionals up-to-date on the latest legislation, reforms and industry news. This kind of support helps our professionals provide the best services to their customers and business partners and keeps the industry strong and reputable.
