The National Association of Mortgage Brokers (NAMB)
has named Rocke Andrews, CMC, CRMS as president at its recent NAMB National 2019 Conference, replacing Rick Bettencourt, CRMS, who will assume the role of immediate past president of the association.
Andrews (pictured right), broker/owner of Lending Arizona, has served in several high-profile positions at NAMB, including serving a term as NAMB president in 2015.
“Rocke has been an active member, volunteer and leader of NAMB for more than 20 years,” said Bettencourt. “NAMB has huge momentum right now as our industry accelerates. Rocke brings great leadership to our diverse member-base and unites our industry.”
In a powerful speech that opened the NAMB National event in Las Vegas, Andrews made a compelling call to its membership.
“It’s time to remember that NAMB is for its members. Not one group or another. NAMB is for all its members. And the core purpose and mission that NAMB set in 1973 is more important than ever today. Prosperity for all,” said Andrews.
Andrews unveiled a new campaign that he explains reasserts NAMB’s industry leadership and core purpose when it was formed by members and for members in 1973. “NAMB for All
” drives awareness of the significant tools, education and advocacy that NAMB delivers to its members and the industry at-large.
“My commitment to you as incoming president is that I will reach out regularly to understand your pain points and where we can help alleviate them,” said Andrews in his speech. “I will always keep you apprised of all the initiatives taking place, but I have one ask … be an active member. NAMB is a member-based, volunteer association. We need to hear from you. We need you getting involved. We need everyone working together. NAMB for All!”
