Essex Leadership

Roland Weedon headshot

Roland Weedon

Owner & CEO

Hailing from Essex, England, Roland Weedon founded Essex Mortgage in 1986. With a background in education, Roland remained adamant that educating the client wouId be the company's #1 priority. Today, Roland still holds to the fact that an educated client is best equipped to make decisions that are not only in their best interest, but also help in achieving both short and long-term goals.

While education is vital, so is adherence to the company’s mission and vision statements. We are lucky to be completely staffed with like-minded mortgage professionals whose priorities align with ours and who share in the philosophy expressed in our mission and vision. In fact, some of our employees have been with us 20+ years! We strive to provide every employee with an environment of support where success becomes simple. This approach guides us in all of our decisions. That is our culture.
