Gordon has been active in the mortgage industry for over two decades and a proud member of AMBA and Mortgage Professionals Canada (formerly CAAMP and CIMBL) since day one. In that time, he has seen many changes and expects to see many more. Now more than ever, Gord recognizes both the need and opportunity for mortgage professionals to work together and collectively raise the quality, awareness and overall stability of the mortgage channel.
Holding the position of principal partner in both a national network and a provincial based brokerage has opened many doors and provided a wealth of learning over the years. Understanding how the provincial and national associations work along with the regulators, insurers and financial institutions has been invaluable. Gordon sites these relationships as paramount to building new and strengthening existing partnerships within our organizations.
Gord is passionate about the growth of the mortgage channel and a staunch believer in giving back to the industry. He has volunteered for a variety of AMBA committees through the years and acted as Emcee for the annual conference on occasion. Gord co-founded a charitable initiative called “Axiom Cares” that has helped raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for more than 50 grass roots charities in Alberta.
Gordon is a graduate of Arizona State University and holds professional memberships from AMBA, CMBABC and MPC. He is a fervent family man, serial entrepreneur, real estate investor and dog’s best friend. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, staying active, volunteering and coaching minor hockey.
