Ryan Raveis Promoted to Vice President, Sales and Marketing at William Raveis Mortgage
SHELTON, Conn. — Charlie Ferraro, president of William Raveis Mortgage, recently announced the promotion of Ryan Raveis to vice president, sales and marketing of the mortgage company.

“It gives me great pleasure to announce Ryan’s recent promotion within the mortgage company,” said Ferraro. “In just under a year, his sales and recruiting efforts have been the foundation for extraordinary growth in our mortgage business – in excess of 40 percent since 2006. We are very proud of the progress he has made, and look forward to his continued success.”

Ryan Raveis joined the company in mid-2006 after successful positions at companies both in Connecticut and in the Boston area. In 2000, Ryan began working as a William Raveis Mortgage consultant, where he was a top producing loan originator. His career then took him to the Boston area, where he earned the position of business development manager for Forrester Research, a provider of strategic IT research and consulting services in Cambridge. He was soon promoted to account executive and worked with leaders of Fortune 500 companies in developing their company’s IT and Internet strategy. In 2006, Ryan and his wife Meghan moved to Ryan’s hometown of Fairfield, and he began working full-time at the family business.

“Ryan’s thorough analysis and understanding of the drivers of the mortgage banking business have been the keys to our rapid growth that has outpaced the marketplace,” said Ferraro. “We are delighted that he is a member of our team and look forward to his continued innovation and development of our sales force and marketing strategy.”

Ryan received a BA from Williams College and an MBA from Babson College, magna cum laude, in finance and entrepreneurship.

As vice president, sales and marketing, Ryan will oversee sales and marketing functions of William Raveis Mortgage, which was established in 1984. He will continue to expand upon his development of the firm’s “one stop shopping” initiative – a plan to seamlessly integrate the William Raveis Family of Companies in an effort to offer clients and customers a variety of services to satisfy all of their core needs in regard to the real estate transaction.
