Every year, our TMC Team takes some time to reflect on what we're thankful for. One of the common themes across the board?
You, our TMC Family.
If it weren't for you, our Preferred Partners and Lender Members, we wouldn't be driven to challenge the status quo, find creative ways to solve age-old problems, and create an environment in which our members can collaborate fearlessly. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for making this organization what it is today.
Ashleigh Alexander, Member Benefits Advocate
"Real simple this year. I’m thankful for my growing girls, and my supportive and caring husband. I’m thankful for being able to get out and experience things with them this year and for being able to share our time with our extended family as well! Grateful for our lender members (extension of my family) and for the amazing humans they all are. And for the opportunity to work with some amazing preferred partners who genuinely care about our members!"
Rich Swerbinsky, President & COO
"Thankful for my awesome girlfriend Katie, our four crazy teen kids, our dogs Fart and Dog, and the privilege of working for such an incredible company with such an amazing staff I get to work with each day."
Ryan Carr, Member Benefits Advocate
“I’m most grateful this year for all of the NEW family additions. From my wonderful TMC Family whom I adore, to my biological family who has been a village in raising me, and now my daughter Sol. When Sol and I were in the hospital recovering from delivery, both families rallied around to make sure both of us remembered we are cherished, and we are loved.”
Tom Gallucci, VP, Business Development
"I am thankful for my beautiful better half and my healthy son who makes everyday worthwhile. I’m also immensely thankful for my #tmcfamily, particularly our amazing TMC team who typify what it means to ‘pay it forward’ and work so tirelessly to support our members and partners. And always thankful for our Preferred Partners who do so much to support TMC & our members day-in and day-out!"
Sarah Wood, Member Benefits Advocate
"I'm thankful for our 'little cutie' on the way."
Gabriela Mendicino, Marketing & Communications Manager
"I am forever thankful for my family, especially my fantastic husband and our beautiful (and hilarious) baby boy. They have always been my reason for everything, and I proudly bear the title of 'luckiest gal' because of them."
Angie Scarfino, Member Benefits Advocate
"I'm thankful for these three for always keeping me on my toes!"
Sarah Van Wagnen, Special Projects Coordinator
"This year I am thankful for my friends and family for always being there for me, through the hard times and the best times!"
Toni Bramley, Business Development Coordinator
“I am so thankful for God’s love, family, good friends, and the wonders of nature that are all around us. Happy Thanksgiving!”
Amy Boor, Education & Events Coordinator
"I am thankful for my wonderful family. Our newest addition has given us all a joy that is wonderful to share every day. I love watching these boys grow into kind, principled, empathetic young men."

During our recent TMC Reunited conference in California, the TMC's Lender-led Board of Directors met and officially voted in Eric Burgoon, Chief Lending Officer at Lake Michigan Credit Union, as a new member.
“As one of TMC’s earliest members and the long-time Chief Lending Officer for one of America’s larger credit unions, Eric is incredibly well positioned to add a lot of value to our Board of Directors as we continue to add great credit union lender members to the TMC family nationally," said Rich Swerbinsky, COO and President of TMC. We agree that Eric is a fabulous new addition to an already well-rounded board.
We asked Eric to answer a few questions about his favorite things and what he's most excited about in his new role on TMC's board.
What’s your favorite food?
Would have to be Gino’s East pizza, but can only do 1, maybe 2 pieces anymore!
Where’s your favorite place to be?
On my pickleball court with all my kids and their spouses.
What is the best part of your job?
Seeing great people be successful. I like to be in the background setting the structure, products, pricing and culture to help them succeed.
How did you first become involved with TMC?
About 5 – 6 years ago. I’ve known Rich longer and knew TMC would be very successful with him in a key leadership role and it certainly has rapidly become the most practical and valuable association in the mortgage industry.
Tell us something about yourself that we don’t know.
While in college I worked for a professor and got to spend two summers on Mount Rainier in Washington and in Juneau, Alaska. I’ve actually have a credit on a paper published in The Journal of Glaciology. And I got to climb Mount Rainier for fun!
What are you most excited about as a new board member?
The opportunity to work with Jim, Rich and all the Board members to bring more credit unions into the TMC family. I have always been appreciative of being associated and learning from the great independent mortgage bankers and community banks that are a part of TMC, and now I get the chance to share that with other credit unions.
