Mortgage Architects is delighted to welcome Ron McClenaghan and his Powerhouse Mortgage Team to its growing network of professional mortgage brokers and franchise owners across Canada.
“Ron has been an industry icon for many years in the Canadian Mortgage space, admired by all. We are absolutely thrilled to have him a part of the MA family”, says Gary Mauris, CEO, DLC Group of Companies.
Citing “core values, “culture” and “leadership” as key reasons for joining Mortgage Architects, Ron states: “Leadership throughout the DLC Group of Companies and the caring culture of Mortgage Architects made me want to be part of this dynamic group of people.“
From the beginning of his mortgage career with Victoria & Grey Trust in London, Ontario, Ron has served in a number of senior capacities in Banking, Real Estate Development, Real Estate Investment and for the past 20 years as a Mortgage Broker.
A consummate professional, Ron has become a trusted and respected mortgage advisor to many satisfied customers as well as a mentor to industry colleagues.
Meinhard Ickert, Sr VP Sales says “ I have had the good fortune of getting to know Ron through our mutual interactions at various industry Association events over the years and have always been impressed by his passion for the industry and his commitment to giving back. Ron has an impeccable reputation and to now have him as part of our MA Family is very gratifying.”
Ron’s dedication and commitment to “giving back” to the industries he has worked in is borne out by his many volunteer positions held over a 40 year career and continuing to this day. Early in his career he held the position of President and Past President of the Saskatoon Mortgage Loans Association. As a real Estate Developer he served over 7 years on the Saskatoon Home Builders Association as President and Past President, the Saskatchewan Home Builder Provincial Council as a Director and at the national level as VP Sales & Marketing Committee of the Canadian Home Builder Association.
In 1999 Ron entered the Mortgage Broker industry and during his time has served 7 years on the Alberta Mortgage Brokers Association Board of Directors in a number of capacities and in 2013 served in the capacity of President and Past President in 2014. During this tenure Ron was also asked to serve on the Real Estate Council of Alberta RECA’s Mortgage Council.
Adds Dustan Woodhouse, President – MA:- "Having Ron aboard with Mortgage Architects speaks volumes to the momentum the team is building, when a professional with another company for ten, fifteen, or on this case nearly twenty years makes the decision to make the move and join Mortgage Architects, it is the entire team that benefits from having this kind of industry knowledge and experience added to the mix."
A dedicated family man married for 43 years to his wife Patti, they have 3 adult children, Erin, Daniel and Bree.
We are honored to have you with us Ron and look forward to working with you and your team as valued members of the Mortgage Architects family.
