Canadian Mortgage Awards winners set to be announced

by |
The votes are in and now it’s only two days until the winners of the 2011 Canadian Mortgage Awards, sponsored by ICICI Bank, are announced.
 
More than 500 mortgage industry professionals will be in attendance at Toronto’s Liberty Grand on Friday when 21 awards will be handed out, based on weeks of deliberation from a panel of esteemed judges and nearly 2,000 votes submitted in nine categories online through the Canadian Mortgage Awards Popular Vote reader poll.
 
“The evening promises to be a big night for the industry,” said KMI Publishing and Events president Tim Duce. “It is first and foremost a celebration of the best and brightest in the industry.”
 
“The Canadian mortgage lending business and servicing the mortgage broker market is at the core of ICICI Bank Canada’s growth strategy. To celebrate our successful first year and to further our commitment to mortgage brokers and the business, we are proud to sponsor the prestigious Canadian Mortgage Awards, which recognize and honour the industry’s best,” said Rajesh Ramakrishnan, Vice President, Retail Banking & Operations.
 
Hosted by radio personality Maureen Holloway, the fun-filled Las Vegas-themed evening will feature performances and then live music at the After Party, sponsored by Merix Financial. The night will also include prize giveaways, including a pair of iPads from Platinum Sponsor ICICI Bank and a trip for two to Las Vegas, courtesy of Merix Financial.
 
There are still a few seats available, so if you want to attend the mortgage industry event of the year, book now.
