Olympic legend Jim Craig will speak and present the awards to the companies that will be elected into the Ellie Mae Hall of Fame at the 2015 Ellie Mae Encompass Experience conference. Craig, who played goaltender for the 1980 U.S. hockey team, had a pivotal role in the team’s victory over a seemingly unbeatable Soviet Union squad on the way toward winning Olympic gold. After his professional hockey career, Craig founded Gold Medal Strategies, a motivational speaking and sales training firm that has helped more than 500 companies.
“Jim Craig’s heroics on the ice captivated the entire nation, but it is the lessons he learned along the way that have tremendous value for today’s mortgage companies,” said Jonathan Corr, president and chief operating officer at Ellie Mae. “At a time when some of the industry’s challenges appear almost insurmountable, we are thrilled to have an Olympic legend on hand who has overcome great obstacles. We know Jim will inspire Encompass Experience attendees to apply his lessons to their own businesses and become champions themselves.”
