Alec Hanson is a popular and dynamic leader within the mortgage industry. When he started as loan consultant, every year he was nationally recognized as a top 1% loan originator.

Now, over his successful 15-year career, he uses his expertise, leadership and passion for the business to drive his managers and loan consultants into becoming top-performers. Most recently, Hanson was promoted to senior vice president and divisional manager of loanDepot’s newly created Pacific Southwest division. In this role, Hanson expands his duties beyond the supervision of the company’s Southern California locations to include oversight into the production and growth of the company’s Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Hawaii and southern Nevada branches. Prior to this, he led explosive growth throughout Southern California growing the mortgage volume there by over 400% in the last seven years.

“I have trouble seeing one thing I had to overcome to succeed. It’s been all the things. This industry is hard, it’s constantly changing and ever demanding. There is always something to overcome, some new challenge to take on, some new thing to learn and adapt to. But it’s what I love about the business and our industry. I had to overcome my insecurities as a 23-year-old, first-time loan officer. And all I can say, is bring on the next one!”
