Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) May 02, 2013
The Registered Mortgage Professional Board of Standards (RMP Board) announces Christopher Nickerson, veteran in standardizing professionalism in the mortgage lending industry through education and licensing, has been named Chairman of the Board of the organization.
The RMP Board identified Nickerson as the most qualified candidate to advise on the execution of the organization’s mission, help to establish momentum for the RMP designation, and garner widespread support of mortgage professionals and related organizations in the elevation of the mortgage industry.
For more than 15 years, Nickerson has been intimately involved in the transition of the mortgage lending profession from an unregulated industry to one with federal licensing and education standards imposed by all U.S. states and territories. Closely monitoring state legislative licensing and education efforts since 1998, he built TrainingPro, a successful training and compliance company that became approved by every state regulatory agency enacting education requirements as part of licensing. Under Nickerson's leadership, TrainingPro educated the top mortgage lenders in the country, supported state mortgage associations, and became a resource to state regulators and the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) as legislation was enacted in support of higher licensing standards.
Nickerson is an advocate for improving the health of the mortgage lending industry through increased consumer confidence and financial literacy, funding to state housing organizations, and recognition of the ethical mortgage professionals who are proud of their careers.
"The mission of the RMP Board of Standards is truly exciting. Being so closely involved with an industry that directly impacts the health of our nation's economy solidifies my commitment to its improvement," said Nickerson. "I feel privileged to help guide such a powerful mission and bring together the individuals, companies, and organizations that can make it happen."
