Sarah Valentini’s energy propelled radius from a crazy idea into an award-winning brand that has been recognized as one a top place to work in Boston and honored for diversity within its workplace.

Valentini initiated the Next Generation Independent Mortgage Banker program at radius to bring more young talent to the mortgage industry. The program, NEX GEN IMB, offers young professionals a paid eight-week training curriculum focused on mortgage sales, operations and marketing to prepare and induct candidates into the mortgage business.

This year, Valentini helped drive radius deeper into the insurance business by establishing a full-fledged insurance agency. “We are proud to stand up our own insurance business to give our borrowers a seamless experience as they protect their investment,” Valentini said of the move.

Valentini’s 20-plus years of success in residential mortgage lending demonstrates her abilities as a dynamic relationship builder and she directs the same drive that built radius to helping other people and initiatives about which she is passionate. She currently serves as the membership chair on the board of directors for C200, a global organization for women business leaders.
