Motto Mortgage's VP of Operations, Terri Larson, was named an Elite Woman due to her commitment to elevating the Motto network, growing the Motto Franchising, LLC brand, and being a leader that her team looks up to and respects. Since joining the Motto Mortgage team, she's spearheaded countless initiatives to streamline and improve operational efficiency, including redesigning the operations department to strengthen franchisee onboarding and development, increasing professional development opportunities for her staff and franchisees, and launching recruiting and retention programs that helped increase average Loan Originator count across Motto offices.

"Terri's commitment to the growth of the Motto Mortgage brand is unparalleled," says Ward Morrison, President & CEO of Motto Franchising, LLC. "Under her guidance and efforts, Motto Franchising, LLC reached the milestone of 300 offices sold, and celebrated a record year in 2021 with 60 new offices open and the Motto network surpassing $3.5B in loan volume."

VP of Marketing & Advertising, Kelly Gill, was also recognized as an Elite Woman for being the force behind Motto Mortgage's leading cross-functional marketing departments. Kelly has overseen the development and rollout of key technology tools and marketing initiatives to propel the growth and success of the Motto network. To help the network take ownership of their digital marketing initiatives and online reputation, she spearheaded the network-wide rollout of a holistic SaaS tool that allows members to optimize their social channels, monitor and respond to online reviews, perform paid digital advertising and more, all in one easy to use platform.

"Kelly has a proven track record of elevating and growing mortgage brands through unique and impactful marketing," Ward Morrison goes on to say. "Her extensive experience provides her with unique insight into what's important to brokerages and loan originators and allows her to turn those needs into actionable strategies for our franchisees."
