Prior to becoming a Mortgage Advisor at Finance of America Mortgage, Doug Mendenhall was CEO of Cerulic, Inc., a Portland, Oregon-based wireless networking company. His past roles also include Vice President of Cap Gemini, a global frontrunner in consulting, technology and outsourcing services, and Manager at Accenture, a leading international corporation providing a range of digital, technology & operations solutions.
In 2003, after semi-retiring, Doug began helping friends and family learn how to invest in real estate and maximize the return on their investments. He was very successful helping those close to him and word traveled quickly, bringing more opportunities for him to share his knowledge. A friend suggested Doug become a mortgage advisor and thus, his career in the mortgage industry began.
Doug’s lifelong ambition to achieve large goals has proven rewarding. He has been recognized at Finance of America Mortgage’s President’s Club as a Top Producer within the company every year since 2009, been a keynote speaker for Finance of America Mortgage’s Sales Rally as well as sat on the Top Producers Panel at the Sales Mastery conference (an industry-wide premier mortgage training event). He and his team continue to not only break sales records in the NW, but also sustain their position within the top five teams throughout the entire company, several years in a row.
Doug thoroughly enjoys the mortgage process and thrives on advising clients on how to invest and accumulate wealth. Doug works with some of the most reputable professionals in real estate and is genuinely dedicated to educating others on how to achieve financial freedom and the benefits of owning real estate.
Doug was born and raised in the beautiful state of Oregon and has two sons. His passions are his family, motivational speaking and helping others achieve their goals.
