Paul Buege, President and Chief Operating Officer, Inlanta Mortgage

Paul Buege leads the Inlanta Mortgage team toward achieving the firm’s strategic goals and provides direction in overall sales and recruiting strategies, human resources and corporate communications. 

Buege is known for fostering a positive, diverse work environment where he listens to and appreciates all perspectives. By removing walls within the company and creating an environment where everyone’s input is valued and acted upon, Buege has created an award-winning workplace. His unique leadership style and influence at Inlanta have not only led to employees’ strong performance, but to industry accolades as well. 

Earlier this year, Inlanta was selected by National Mortgage News as one of the industry’s 40 Best Mortgage Companies to Work For, which recognizes the industry’s best employers, based on employee feedback. That feedback was impressive, too. About 98% of the company’s employees said they were “very satisfied” working for the company while 97% said they would recommend Inlanta to a friend and 98% said Inlanta gave them the technology and resources they needed to succeed. 

Knowing that truly successful businesses are always improving and that great ideas can come from anywhere, Buege invites feedback from everyone at the company, directly to him, anonymously, and through the firm’s advisory board. Team members at Inlanta credit Buege’s leadership style for the positive feedback that employees give to Inlanta on overall job satisfaction. 

His leadership style has been described as a blend of inspiration, excitement and positivity, centered on everyone achieving a common goal. And where other companies profess to have a “team-first” culture, Buege actually helped build it.

What one habit has made a crucial difference in your success?
Always being able to recognize that there is a “best” outcome in every situation, no matter how difficult or scary. If you’re able to step back from the noise of the moment and look for it, you’ll always be able to see a better path.
