The Crawford Team at V.I.P. Mortgage, Inc. is excited to announce Mortgage Banker Ryan Madrid’s new charge as Director of Business Development. Madrid’s elevated position enables him to oversee all of strategic relationships in order to facilitate the continued growth of our company brand with key partners.

“We didn’t have to look far in our search for a genuine leader to embrace this new role,” said Stuart Crawford, Branch Manager. “We feel unbelievably grateful and fortunate to have him as a key part of our team’s operation. Ryan’s undeniable passion for service and relationships perfectly coincides with our vision of delivering the highest quality, personalized service, and being our client’s mortgage concierge.”

Madrid has a proven track record of developing and managing relationships in pharmaceutical sales and medical devices for 13 years. Prior to joining V.I.P. in 2013, Ryan was an associate director of physician development for Procter and Gamble. Madrid found success utilizing his uncanny ability to naturally connect with people on an emotional level and bring sincere value to his relationships. This experience outside the mortgage industry will serve V.I.P. well, bringing a fresh and unique perspective that will help take our company and our team to new heights.

“Ryan’s role requires a very specific skill set that can be regarded as a combination of sales, marketing and strategic analysis – the three segments that serve as a pillar for any progressive business,” explained V.I.P. President and Founder Jay Barbour.

Crawford added, “Ryan’s role is an evolved variation of the sales and marketing division, a segment of business that deals with practically everything from product to service. This includes sales generation and the negotiation and sealing of important business relationships. His chief responsibilities are to identify promising business opportunities, understand the requirements and demands of business markets, forge productive business alliances, and chart new ways to explore and exploit our Team’s value with the right clients. We are extremely excited to embark on our continued journey with Ryan, and for what the future holds for our brand and clients. “
