2022 HW Vanguard: William Lyons


Griffin Funding CEO and President William (Bill) Lyons’s career in mortgage and real estate has been dedicated to serving the self-employed and veterans. Lyons has been on Shark Tank and serves on the Forbes Real Estate Council, and his company, Griffin Funding, has been recognized by Inc. 5000 four times. Lyons has helped prepare Griffin Funding so the organization could pivot its marketing and focus even in a changing market. He is a leader who truly cares about his people, clients, veterans and community and has ensured that he gives back to that community by donating a portion of all VA loan revenue to Shelter to Soldier, which rescues dogs from shelters and then trains them to be service dogs for combat veterans with PTSD.

What is one habit that has made a  crucial-difference in your success?

Making the first 15 minutes of my day really count. It sets me up for the day and the week. This has helped me become more productive, focused and patient.
