On this weeks Canadian Mortgage Hangout we discussed the recent announcement of the possible sale of ING Direct Canada. For those that aren’t aware ING Direct offers mortgages to Canadians in what they brand as the “UnMortgage“. We also touch on the culture that has been built at ING and how this has affected their competitors and also will influence their possible sale.
It’s no surprise that ING Direct has been named Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures by Waterstone Human Capital. After watching the Hangout be sure to view the Leadership Q&A: with Peter Aceto, CEO of ING Direct Canada where he shares the skills that have helped him as a leader, and the benefits of being an underdog.
If you haven’t dropped in on a live Hangout before I participate in weekly broadcasts on Google+ where I’m joined by mortgage professionals from across Canada for a discussion about mortgages, real estate, industry news and more! If you want to watch the live, our broadcast is posted on the front page of CanadianMortgageHangout.tv Thursdays at 10am PST/1pm EST.
