|Mark J. Hanna, President/CEO
An entrepreneur is defined as one who undertakes, organizes and operates a business venture. Mark J. Hanna, President and CEO of Directors Mortgage, Inc., takes these dictionary terms to another level. An Oregon native, Mark’s entrepreneurial spirit began at age 16 when he launched his first company, Mack’s Landscaping, as a Jesuit High School student. Mark graduated second in his class with honors from the University of San Diego, receiving his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Finance, while also competing in Division 1 intercollegiate soccer. In 1996, he began his mortgage-banking career at CTX Mortgage in San Diego.
In 1998, with the right combination of experience and ambition, Mark founded Directors Mortgage Inc. and has built it from the ground up to be one of the most respected names in the Mortgage Industry. Directors Mortgage has grown to be one of the largest independent mortgage bankers in the northwest and a nationally recognized company. Mark is focused on serving his clients with the utmost integrity and professionalism. Since we are a mortgage bank as well as a broker, and we are a locally owned and operated company, loan decisions are made locally and funded locally. This means that Mark has the ability to make things happen for your clients when other mortgage loan officers cannot. Mark will take personal responsibility for every client you bring to the Hanna Team.
Leading his company to success by example, he consistently ranks in the top 200 of all mortgage bankers in the nation by Mortgage Originator magazine. Also, the Oregon Business Journal honored Mr. Hanna with its “40 Under 40” top businessmen in the state distinction. Mark was one of the youngest individuals to make the list.
Grateful for his success, Mark always will support the community. He contributes to over 50 charitable organizations including Providence Hospital, Shriners Hospital, The Grotto, and Childrens Charity Ball, among others. In addition, Mark also serves on many charitable foundation boards. He also supports the Rotary Club, and was honored as a Paul Harris Fellow.
Mark and his wife, Lindsey, were married in 2006. The couple resides in Lake Oswego.
