FormFree® Head of Vendor Management and Compliance Katie King has been recognized by HousingWire (HW) as a 2020 Woman of Influence. In its tenth year, the Women of Influence awards program honors 100 women who are “shaping and propelling the mortgage, real estate and fintech industries forward.”
King was recognized for her contributions to the housing economy during the 2008 housing market crash and for her role at FormFree, where she oversees all matters relating to compliance, audits, vendor management and enterprise risk. A 20-year veteran of the housing and finance industries, King earned her compliance and government relations bona fides as a senior leader at such organizations as Black Knight Financial Services, Citizen’s Bank and SunTrust Bank (now Truist). As Director of Business Development and Client Relations at Hope LoanPort, King deployed the nation’s first consumer-direct portal, which helped 750,000 distressed homeowners access the National Mortgage Settlement.
“Katie’s experience has positioned FormFree to excel even in the midst of a public health pandemic,” said FormFree CEO Brent Chandler. “Her swift efforts have been instrumental in helping our partners understand that we need to urgently advance industry acceptance of direct-source borrower data to streamline processes, improve security and decrease costs for lenders, servicers, investors and — most importantly — borrowers.”
“This year’s Women of Influence represent leaders who have faced some of the most unprecedented challenges the housing industry has seen in years,” said HousingWire Magazine Editor Kelsey Ramírez. “Their strength set an example of leadership that impacted not just their teams or companies but the industry overall. This was one of the most competitive years we have ever seen for the award.”
