Homeowners Financial Group is proud to announce that its Founder and CEO Bill Rogers has been named to the HousingWire Vanguards list for 2023. The HW Vanguard Awards program recognizes C-level industry professionals whose leadership moves housing and mortgage markets forward.
In the challenging post-Covid lending environment, Bill has consistently created collaborative solutions that have kept his sales force confident, upbeat, and motivated. His abundant positive energy infuses every aspect of the organization, from personal and business development initiatives that lift employees to new heights in their careers to the company’s many charitable endeavors (most notably The Care Fund, Arizona’s first nonprofit organization to provide mortgage and rent assistance to families who are experiencing financial and emotional hardship due to their child’s unforeseen medical illness or injury).
“Bill is a true servant leader who is exceptionally connected and accessible to his people and puts them first at all times,” says Homeowners Chief Strategic Officer Ron Stowers. “With someone like Bill at the helm, it’s no surprise that our employees are the biggest advocates for Homeowners.”
As the Founder, Sole Owner, and CEO of Homeowners since its inception in 2004, Bill has grown the company by valuing the success of our employees, who do the same for our clients, partners, vendors, and neighbors. By establishing a mission of improving the lives we touch and understanding that people are the reason for everything we do and achieve, he drives success through the strength of shared values with our employees, which are embedded in a culture of caring and giving.
“The Vanguards award spotlights exceptional C-suite leaders in the housing sector — individuals who continually drive innovation and adapt resiliently in the face of economic challenges,” said Clayton Collins, CEO of HW Media. “This year’s honorees have demonstrated a razor-sharp commitment to their organization’s objectives, astutely identifying and capitalizing on opportunities as they arise, steadfastly refusing to accept the ordinary.”
Bill’s reputation throughout the industry is impeccable and has earned him many esteemed recognitions over the years, including the Arizona Corporate Excellence “Community Impact” Award, the 2019 Founder’s Award from Industry Leaders of Arizona, and being named one Arizona’s most respected and influential professionals in the 2020 edition of AZ Business Leaders. He is also an advocate for other mortgage professionals and has lobbied in Washington, D.C. for the Mortgage Bankers Association. In June 2022, he was proud to be part of a group of leaders who created a newly charted community bank called Gainey Business Bank, and he currently sits on the Board of Directors.
