FCT’s Ryan Lambert recognized as one of Canadian Mortgage Professional magazine’s 2019 Young Guns for leading product innovation at FCT
Leading industry publication ranked Lambert among the top 40 mortgage professionals across Canada under 35 who are primed to become the next generation of industry leaders
OAKVILLE, ON, August 9, 2019 – Ryan Lambert, head of product and innovation at FCT, was named one of Canadian Mortgage Professional (CMP) magazine’s Young Guns in 2019 for leading digital product innovation at FCT. The CMP Young Guns ranking recognizes 40 of the mortgage industry’s young professionals under 35 who have made a significant impact and achieved a high level of success in their respective roles.
Lambert’s primary responsibility at FCT is developing and bringing to market products that digitize the home-buying cycle from start to finish. He is leading the charge on FCT’s innovative efforts to transform the real estate transfer and mortgage lending process to an all-digital, seamless experience.
“Right now, our industry is stuck in this strange half-digital, half-offline state. There are slick front-end digital applications and pre-approvals, but condition fulfillment and closing are still rooted in paper. I’m not sure this hybrid state actually creates the right experience for anyone in the value chain,” said Lambert. “How do we go beyond the basics of digital mortgage and create a fully digital buying, selling or refinancing experience? Creating a more integrated “search to keys” experience is what I’m focused on right now.”
Daniela DeTommaso, head of FCT’s data strategy, explains why Lambert is a key part of FCT’s success, “Ryan is leading the charge of bringing to life FCT’s vision for an all-digital home-buying process. We are so excited that he has been recognized by CMP and awarded this prestigious honour as it demonstrates his commitment to our customers and FCT.”
