Guaranteed Rate CEO Victor Ciardelli Named a Finalist for CEO of the Year at ITA CityLights Awards
Guaranteed Rate founder and CEO Victor Ciardelli has been named a finalist in the “CEO of the Year” category at the 2014 CityLights Awards, sponsored by the Illinois Technology Association. Ciardelli was one of five finalists for the award, and the only finalist not to come from a traditional tech or software company.
The CityLights Awards recognize excellence in the technology industry. The CEO of the Year award is presented to the CEO who has utilized technology to lead successful company growth through leadership, ability to attract and retain talented resources, financial accomplishments and strategy for continued company growth.
The honor is an affirmation of Ciardelli’s commitment since Guaranteed Rate’s inception to streamline and modernize the mortgage process through technology. The company’s award-winning online loan application has been central to that effort, helping to fund more than $3 billion in home loans.
