HousingWire Announces 2021 HW Insiders

Today, HousingWire announced the 2021 list of HW Insiders, honoring 100 operational superstars in housing who are driving their companies and clients forward.

This year’s list of honorees represent a wide range of occupations within the housing economy, from lending and real estate to fintech. The Insiders are the professionals their companies turn to with their most important or challenging behind-the-scenes projects, and their contributions and hard work lead to superior results.

“The winners of our Insiders award are an incredible group of doers that we’re proud to recognize for their essential contributions to their companies and the larger mortgage and real estate ecosystem,” HousingWire Editor and Chief Sarah Wheeler said. “Everyone on this year’s list is a crucial part of their company’s success and we’re honored to give them the spotlight.”

The 2021 HW Insiders were carefully selected by HousingWire’s selection committee based on their vital and dynamic contributions to their companies and the industry as a whole.

“The housing economy has successfully navigated a year of record high volumes and technological innovation moving at breakneck speed – all while grappling with the operational challenges presented by a global pandemic,” said Clayton Collins, CEO of HW Media. “This is the perfect time to pause and recognize the professionals in mortgage, real estate and technology who are truly moving this market forward. The 2021 HousingWire Insiders all possess the intellect, stamina and leadership to transform the housing industry for the better – growing businesses and supporting millions of American families.”
