I am honored to be named in the same list as the Fed Chairman, and many other illustrious CEO’s and mortgage professionals in the country. It is just another validation that we are creating a brand that is making a difference.

Shashank Shekhar, CEO Arcus Lending Inc was named among the hottest 100 mortgage professionals of 2013 by Mortgage Professional America. He shared this honor with the leading names in the banking, finance and mortgage industry. Other notable professionals named in this prestigious list include the Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, incoming Fed Chairman Janet Yellen, CEOs of top four banks in the country and many more.

"I founded Arcus Lending in the midst of the mortgage melt down to serve potential home buyers via education so that they could make informed decisions about the mortgage product they were choosing. Since then we have educated many potential home buyers and empowered them to choose products that fit their unique financial situation and serve their best interest and not the interest of the financial institutions. Being named in this list is a testimony to that fact that we are creating a company that is making a difference in the financial lives of consumers”, said Shashank Shekhar.

While bestowing this honor on him, Mortgage Professional America noted “Shashank Shekhar entered the mortgage industry in 2008 with just three people in his database.
