When Chrissi Rhea co-founded Mortgage Investors Group 32 years ago, she set out to create the kind of customer-focused, loan officer-empowered company she wished existed within the mortgage lending industry. Her investment in loan officers and the borrowers and communities they serve has been the constant that has allowed MIG to grow. She’s held firm to the values upon which MIG was founded, and those principles of doing right by the customer and providing loan officers with the resources, support and mentoring they need to succeed have guided every decision she’s made since. In the past year alone, she spearheaded efforts to grow MIG’s online business presence and has expanded the company’s presence across the Southeast by bringing their services to four new states. Rhea’s ability to creatively and quickly adapt to economic and market fluctuations, evolving industry regulations and rapidly changing technologies has also stood the test of time. When COVID-19 hit, she swiftly implemented a work-from-home program for over 300 employees across multiple states. Additionally, Rhea serves on the Board of Directors for the Tennessee Housing Development Agency, as a member of the THDA Audit and Budget Committee and its Lending Committee and as a mentor to four MIG members of the 2021 Board of Directors of the Knoxville Mortgage Bankers Association.
