The 2023 HW Vanguard awards are now open for nominations! This prestigious award recognizes the c-suite executives making an unmistakable impact on the housing ecosystem. These leaders are inspiring their organizations and moving markets forward, each and every day.
One common thread among all of the HW Vanguard honorees is outstanding leadership abilities. HousingWire reached out to the 2022 HW Vanguard honorees to hear more about their leadership strategies and asked: In your opinion, what trait or behavior that makes an effective leader?
Take a look below at what we heard from two of last year’s winners:
“Asking for help and being ready to say ‘yes’ when asked for help. Saying you believe that it ‘takes a village’ and actually acting on that belief are two different things; actively engaging in the marketplace of mutual help has served me extremely well in leadership roles.” — Alex Lofton, co-founder and CEO of Landed
“I believe the one trait that makes an effective leader outside of integrity is the ability to always be able to pivot immediately from problems to solutions. Great leaders never dwell on obstacles, but always find opportunities.” — Dale Vermillion, founder and CEO of Mortgage Champions
Don’t miss the chance to nominate an industry executive for the 2023 HW Vanguards award! Nominations close Friday, July 28, 2023.
