Industry: Mortgage banking
Radius financial group inc. was founded on the principles of people, passion and purpose. For CEO Sarah Valentini, employees are crucial, and that’s why she works to fill the company with dedicated, hardworking people who don’t take themselves too seriously. Most importantly, though, those employees have to have real passion for the industry. “We love this stuff. Seriously, we are complete nerds when it comes to mortgage banking,” Valentini says. “We have a dramatic vision to revolutionize and reinvest in our industry, corporate cultures and the communities in which we live and work.”
Quick Tip: “I never forget where I came from, and I never take any success for granted.”
To help ensure that radius always has the best and brightest, Valentini and her team created a program called Next Generation Independent Mortgage Bankers. The paid training lasts 12 weeks. It’s designed to attract millennials to a career in mortgage banking, and to address the needs of future millennial homebuyers.
Within the workplace, Valentini dedicates herself to creating a culture that draws people in. When they aren’t hard at work, radius employees and Valentini herself become a part of change in their community through organizations like Habitat for Humanity and Veterans Helping Veterans.
