"Honoring Women in Leadership" Throughout Women’s History Month, Flat Branch Home Loans will celebrate the successes of its female leaders and employees. The company will promote their advice, tips, and personal reflections for future women leaders pursuing managerial roles in the mortgage industry.

“Everyone has stories, and I think that to the extent that we share them, it just makes us stronger,” added Sarah Craig, Chief Financial Officer of FBHL.

In honor of Women’s History Month, Flat Branch Home Loans is publishing a roundtable discussion paired with a weekly blog series written by the company’s female leaders.

At the roundtable, director of sales and marketing, Mary Ropp, discusses leadership with eight of the company’s most influential women. Each woman gives advice, tips, and shares personal stories from helping lead a growing, fast-paced business.

The discussion is directed at young women pursuing leadership roles in the mortgage industry. A transcript and video of the roundtable, along with several supporting blog posts will be spread across multiple during the month of March.

One of the fastest growing businesses in the country, Flat Branch Home Loans is a mortgage lender with over 20 branches in the Midwest. The company prides itself on its steady investment to help women find professional success.

Today’s workplace is abuzz with strategies on how to ascend women to the boardroom and C-suites. Flat Branch Home Loans already has hungry, humble, and people-savvy women standing up as leaders.

Two-thirds of Flat Branch’s more than 250 employees are women. Women also make up half of the managerial team, and a majority of the firm’s mortgage bankers. They represent some of the highest-producing Mortgage Bankers, and fill leadership roles including Chief Operations Officer, Chief Financial Officer, in addition to many more management titles across all of the company’s regional locations.

The Missouri-based company has built competitive teams by broadening the composition of its boardrooms and offices across the Midwest. In each new location, it champions its deep-rooted business model: listening-up. This has resulted in speedy and sustained growth over the Midwestern-mortgage sector.

“You come to Flat and there’s so many females through all different stages of their life who have walked the same path as you,” said Jamie Pandolfo, Saint Louis Sales Manager of FBHL. “And it’s just a really cool, amazing place to be. You flourish.”

Company’s influencers dig into difficult conversations in honor of balance, both at work and home.

“It’s listening up when an employee’s spouse lost their job, or it’s their son’s first Christmas recital but their pipeline is holding them back from cheering him on. We not only encourage outspokenness, but team-up when someone needs support. In other words, we’re a family working for families,” said Emily Harvey, Director of HR. “Just like the families we serve, there’s a benefit from having core values of commitment and openness.”

“Everyone has stories, and I think that to the extent that we share them, it just makes us stronger,” added Sarah Craig, Chief Financial Officer of FBHL.
