MBA's Southern New England Ambassador
Phil DeFronzo is the founder and CEO of Norcom Mortgage. He started Norcom in a rented, one-room office in the fall of 1989. Under his leadership, the Company has grown to become an upstanding and respected Regional Lender.
Although he says that Norcom's success has been "all about hiring good people," Phil has been instrumental in the Company's success. His achievements include increasing revenue, building brand awareness, and growing the business: in 2011, Norcom was recognized as one of the "Fastest Growing Lenders in New England."
While building his business, Phil also served as a Commissioner on the State of Connecticut Ethics Commission from 1991 to 1998, playing a key role in overseeing registered lobbyists in the enforcement of the State of Connecticut Ethics Code. Phil's hands-on style has earned him numerous accolades for optimizing internal operations and building outstanding customer service. He takes great satisfaction in the team he's built at Norcom: "I get to work with a great group of very talented and funny people."
In service to the real estate finance industry, Phil serves on the Mortgage Bankers Association's Board of Directors and as the 2017 Vice Chair of the Association's Residential Board of Governors (RESBOG).
Phil lives in Avon, Connecticut with his wife, Colleen, and their three children.
