Business development manager
Years in the industry: 8
Brennan Trenouth got his start in mortgages straight out of university when he followed his father to Home Trust. “[My father] knew there would be a good opportunity for me to work at Home Trust and expand my business knowledge around mortgages,” Trenouth says. “I am always eager to learn something new, so it was a good challenge for me.”
Trenouth has grown considerably during his career, serving as an underwriter and team lead before taking on the role of business development manager in 2017. “This was an invaluable experience that ultimately equipped me with a comprehensive understanding of the mortgage industry, while also providing a deep understanding of the needs of the broker community and their clients,” he says.
Last year, Trenouth was recognized as one of CMP’s Top BDMs. Now, he’s focused on confronting some of the industry’s biggest challenges. “The most pervasive challenge we must deal with in our industry is the constantly changing landscape,” he says. “Whether regulatory, as we experienced with the B-20 guidelines, or economic, as we’ve seen more recently with Bank of Canada interest rate actions, there are many outside forces that can impact our industry.”
