2023 HW Vanguard: Dale Vermillion

Dale Vermillion

As one of the pre-eminent thought leaders in the space, Dale Vermillion has become synonymous with his advocacy of an OthersFirst approach to sales, customer service and leadership. He is a leading example of the what it looks like to invest in raising up future generations of mortgage leaders. Vermillion has worked tirelessly to help his clients at Mortgage Champions and the industry as a whole navigate this incredibly complex and challenging mortgage market. As both the founder and active CEO, Vermillion personally determines the corporate strategy and manages the executive team, all while protecting the unassailable reputation he and the company have earned over the past 30 years. During his 40th year in mortgage, Vermillion attracted nationally recognized clients, helped form partnerships with multinational brands and spoke at some of the industry’s most prestigious conferences. Vermillion’s dedication to his clients, partners, employees and the industry at large continues to drive his unparalleled work ethic — and the results continue to prove invaluable for his team. Without selling the rest of the team short, it’s hard to imagine retaining 90% of revenue from the previous year when many of the best companies in the space experienced 30%-60% reductions in revenue while others closed their doors altogether.

What has been the secret to your success?

First off, my family, especially the love and support of my wife Laurel and my faith. The desire to provide for my family has been a major driving force in my life. Having a purpose well beyond myself built on helping others is a core principle at our company. Additionally, understanding that my success does not come from me, but from the people around me, has been crucial.
