He is dedicated to Inlanta and the success of our company,” said John Knowlton, Chairman of the Board. Knowlton, who founded Inlanta in 1993, was CEO until DelTorto’s promotion.

DelTorto was recently elected to the National Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) Residential Board of Governors (RESBOG), becoming the first member of the Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Association (WMBA) to be elected to RESBOG. 

DelTorto was also recently presented with the Mortgage Banker of the Year award from the WMBA and the Mortgage Professional America (MPA) Hot 100 for 2015, a national recognition of the Top 100 in the field of mortgage banking. “This award, along with appointment to the board, is a testament to the quality of leadership he brings to the table with Inlanta,” said Knowlton.

He leads all of the marketing and information technology teams, overseeing all branch internet functions, websites, social media, marketing, and customer retention programs. “It has been great to see his growth with our company,” said John Knowlton.   

Joe Ramis, former vice president of business development, is now senior vice president of loan production. Ramis has been with Inlanta since 2007.

“Each of these individuals has been instrumental in our company’s growth and success. We look forward to our continued growth and success as they assume their new roles,” said John Knowlton.
