Mark K Music
President and Chief Executive Officer
Mark K. Music, president and CEO of Ruoff Home Mortgage, came to the company with a vision that shunned convention and pursued a fresh new approach to mortgage banking. In 2007, he set out to make Ruoff the #1 choice of the top talent working in the industry as well as the top choice of consumers needing assistance in achieving their home ownership goals. This philosophy saw Ruoff grow from 18 employees at Music’s arrival to over 500 team members in 2017. The company also went from one location in Fort Wayne (still our headquarters today) to twenty-eight lending centers. Annual loan volume has grown from less than $50,000,000 10 years ago to a projected $2B in 2017. In August of 2017, Ruoff Home Mortgage will have been named to the INC 500|5000 list as an honoree for the fifth consecutive year as well as a Top 100 Mortgage Company in America by Mortgage Executive Magazine.
Under Mark’s leadership, Ruoff has streamlined operations with the implementation of cutting-edge software and processes. All of this ensures the company’s ability to impress its client base with superior, on-time service. Through his direction and leadership, the Ruoff financial services team has established an outstanding reputation throughout the Midwest.
Validation of a proven strategy came in 2017 as Music received the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year award in the category of Financial Services.
