By June 2, 2017 No Comments

Our very own Justin Tucker, Chief Marketing Officer for WEST, has been honored by HousingWire as one of its “Rising Stars.” Justin has been a driver of WFG’s sales and marketing initiatives since 2010, becoming the company’s Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Technology in 2013. He was appointed to the CMO position in 2016. He was one of the lead voices during the creation of WFG’s widely-lauded consumer dashboard, Myhome. It was also Justin who had the vision to implement WFG’s groundbreaking Marketing Tech Director positions to help expand the brand’s reaI ch and impact. You may have seen one of his presentations at an Inman Connect show as well.

However, most of you probably know Justin as the hard-charging technophile at the forefront of WFG’s SPARK and REfresh programs. Among all of Justin’s ideas, these events have become synonymous with the forward thinking, client-first approach that defines the WFG brand. He’s been racking up frequent flyer miles for a few years now, sharing marketing and development ideas light years ahead of many in our industry; and helping WFG’s clients to more effectively market to their own prospects.

“We are excited to recognize these young leaders, who have accomplished so much
in their short careers,” said Sarah Wheeler, HousingWire Magazine Editor. “Our
Rising Stars are the luminaries shaping the housing industry into a more agile,
efficient and profitable model, expanding the opportunity for homeownership to
borrowers across a wide spectrum.”
