Top Mortgage Company* Residential Home Funding Corp. (RHFC) hosted its annual company meeting at the Sheraton Hotel in Mahwah, NJ this past week. There were nearly 400 employees in attendance, with celebrity entertainment, teambuilding exercises, awards, and guest speakers. But this meeting in particular was like no other. The company went above and beyond to celebrate its continued success and consistent growth.
The meeting kicked off with the Brooklyn Unite Marching Band flooding the doors of the room where everyone was seated. The beat of the drums, the sounds of the horns and the energy of the dancers set the tone for the day. Every single person in the room was thrilled and moving with the music, elated by the surprising morning movement.
Next came a hysterical yet inspirational speech from Paul Cell, the VP of the International Chief’s Association. Our keynote speaker was Scott Hopeck, the President of iHeart Media, who also motivated the team. Next came the Amazing Kreskin – a seasoned mentalist who has been on TV more times than we can count. But none of these meant more to the company then having Vinny Ventriglia on stage with his family. Vinny, a young man with cancer, was presented with a check on behalf of the RHF Foundation and the Dean Michael Clarizio Cancer Foundation (DMCCF). RHFC makes service and giving back its priority, and was honored to help Vinny and his family.
The afternoon was all laughs, with the entire company participating in a team building exercise that blew expectations out of the water. The “RHF Project Runway Superhero Challenge” was a first for the company, and was a massive hit. 15 teams worked to create their own superhero, with its own funky costume design, name, and super powers. Employees from different states, departments and backgrounds were thrown together at random and the results were side-splitting laughs and a newfound sense of comradery. The shocking winner and entire runway show was captured on video, and can be found here:
