Mortgage Architects Gains a Strong Foothold in Eastern Ontario With the Signing of Veteran Broker Craig Dick

BELLEVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 23, 2008) - Mortgage Architects is pleased to announce the signing of Craig Dick, giving the company a strong presence in the Belleville area and the entire Quinte Region.

"We're thrilled that Craig Dick has joined our team of Lead Planners," said Bob Ord, Chairman and CEO of Mortgage Architects. "He is extremely well regarded in the industry, has developed a solid client-centric business, and his vision for the future aligns with where we plan to take this company. We have had great success in the municipalities east of Toronto and in the Ottawa area and needed a high caliber broker like Craig Dick to open this part of Ontario for Mortgage Architects," said Ord. "This is fantastic news for our company."

After a successful career in leasing, working as both a credit and sales manager, Craig Dick moved into the mortgage industry with a small mortgage brokerage firm. After 4 years, Craig moved to a national mortgage brokerage where he spent the last 10 years developing a very solid referral-based business that generates over $45 million in annual mortgage volume.

Craig initially met representatives of Mortgage Architects at the national CAAMP conference but wasn't ready to make a move until he had researched all of the alternatives available. "I came to the conclusion that Mortgage Architects had the most to offer at this stage in my career," says Craig. "I was particularly impressed with their inhouse lender, myNext Mortgage Company, which can be responsive to our needs, and by the ownership the company offers to all lead planners. I was also very impressed with the team that is running the company," said Craig. "There is no one more experienced in this industry than Bob Ord and that instills a lot of confidence."

Craig has developed strong financial planner relationships and is looking forward to the company's strategic focus on mortgage planning. Craig has a storefront office on Front St. in downtown Belleville and is planning to build a team of like-minded individuals along with current associate planner Carol McLean.
