2017 Rising Stars: Alec Hanson

Hanson name

Alec Hanson joined loanDepot in 2010, managing three branches and 65 employees. His volume has since grown 225% and branch infrastructure has grown 456% — now including 14 total branches.

Hanson spent years in production as a nationally ranked, top 1% loan originator, organically creating top-producing branches for large, national lenders and he now coaches many loan officers. In addition to being the No. 1 rookie originator in 2005, according to Mortgage Originator, he has been a top percentage producer annually and has received numerous loanDepot President’s Club awards.

Hanson was an active part of the Orange County and Newport Beach Associations of Realtors when he was a loan originator. In 2010, he joined the board of directors for the breast cancer awareness group, Barbells for Boobs, to honor his mother who has breast cancer. The group raises $2 million to $4 million a year and grants the money to a variety of major foundations such as Susan G. Komen.
