The list is full of executives — from CEOs and CFOs to presidents and executive directors, as well as those serving as senior vice presidents and executive vice presidents. Many of the women who are helming companies also founded or co-founded their companies, while others are leading legacy companies in new directions. The winners had to demonstrate tangible accomplishments in the last 12 months within the context of their companies, but also show influence in the industry at large. All have one thing in common: They are undeniably Women of Influence.
“The 2015 Women of Influence are innovative leaders who are changing the way the housing economy functions. From developing better processes and solutions to driving legislative change, these women are having a far-reaching impact on the U.S. mortgage market,” Sarah Wheeler, HousingWire Magazine Editor, said.
“Every year, the selection process gets tougher, and every year the list gets better,” said Jacob Gaffney, Executive Editor of HousingWire. “We recognize the Women of Influence annual accomplishments as a way to promote those who continue to Move Markets Forward.”
