Executive Leadership Team

Sarah Valentini

Sarah Valentini, Co-Founder

There's no doubt that leading one of the area’s top woman-lead business is ambitious. But what truly drives Sarah is not a plaque on the wall or reaching the top of the corporate ladder. It’s meeting others’ needs. As a child, she watched her mother use entrepreneurship as outreach. Whether the need was employment, friendship or a good example, she saw how owning your own business could be used to meet it. Today, she has created a person-centric culture which embodies her vision of what mortgage lending should be.

Keith Polaski

Keith Polaski, Co-Founder and COO

Drawing from his military background, it was Keith who established the radius standard-shattering processing and underwriting goals by asking seasoned underwriters how quickly a quality loan can be completed, rather than following the laissez-faire approach of most lending institutions.

In Keith’s view, radius should set such a high standard that employees of any industry are drawn to the workplace culture and the high service level so that competitors are compelled to improve their own.
