COO

Matrix Mortgage Global

A true thought leader in the mortgage and lending landscape, Laura Martin has been driving the charge toward the technological and cultural evolution of the industry during the 12 years she’s been in the business. Martin has been published more than 20 times in the past year; her content has been featured across the Verico network in Canada, as well as internationally at the Mortgage Professional Australia Broker Business Exchange.

Along with the leadership team at Matrix, which has funded more than $1.1 billion in mortgages and has been ranked on the Growth 500 list of Canada’s fastest-growing companies for two consecutive years, Martin has worked to foster a growthfocused organizational culture that combines the company’s marketing and technology platform with a virtual training and development program that sets up individual agents for success. Using what she proudly calls her “warrior spirit,” Martin, a mental health activist, also stands up to predatory lending practices and cyberbullying in the industry, as well as exclusionist policies in areas like association memberships and appraisals.
