This is the eighth year that HousingWire has recognized the women leading the mortgage and housing industry forward, and each year, the nominations grow more and more competitive.
These 85 women represent a variety of occupations within the housing economy, each demonstrating leadership that inspires those in their own companies, in their communities and in the industry at large.
Some of HW’s 2018 award winners have worked their way up in traditional mortgage companies, while others started their own businesses. Each woman has made their mark in marketing, technology, economics, compliance, operations and business development.
“The 2018 Women of Influence are an inspiring, amazing group of leaders. These women are innovating in every area: technology, marketing, compliance, strategy, operations and more,”
Sarah Wheeler, Managing Editor of HousingWire Content Solutions, said. “Their energy and expertise are fueling the success of companies across the industry, and their impact is felt in every area of mortgage finance and real estate.”
Many of this year’s winners mentor other women in the industry, manage internship programs for college students or work with business groups in disadvantaged areas. Others coordinate volunteer programs for their employees or serve on advisory boards that inform the industry.
Investing time and effort to see others succeed is a hallmark of this group, and should be celebrated in its own right.
“Why is this year’s Women of Influence so big? We had so many incredible applicants this year that even choosing 85 was difficult. This year, above all others, shows all of us the need to recognize powerhouse leadership in the mortgage industry,” said HousingWire Editor-in-Chief Jacob Gaffney. “It’s our responsibility to recognize women who are at the top of their game, those who improve our industry, day in and day out, and help make a brighter future for every American in search of a place to call home.”
