40 | TH E M R EP O RT Sue Carrion DIRECTOR, DEFAULT SERVICING, OCWEN FINANCIAL CORPORATION Sue Carrion lead the Ocwen Global Women's Network for Ocwen Financial Corporation, an affinity group with the mission of supporting the recruitment, development, and retention of women across the organization. In this capacity, she helped facilitate events such as negotiation workshops, self-defense classes, networking events, leadership classes, executive panels, and team- building exercises, while also supporting local businesses. Carrion also coordinated the facilitation of events, such as "Women in Distress of Broward County," "Dress for Success West Palm Beach," "Locks of Love West Palm Beach," and "Chef for a Day." "Being able to help people in need within the community is always fulfilling. I feel grateful for all the opportunities and resources available in my life and love sharing it with others. I feel proud when I see the Ocwen Global Women's Network come together and donate their time and resources to help organizations make a difference in our community," Carrion said. She added that it is important to be your authentic self, as teams appreciate and trust leaders who are authentic and genuine, "regardless if they fit into the perceived mold of what a leader in corporate American should be." Yvette Gilmore VP, SINGLE-FAMILY SERVICER RELATIONSHIP AND PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT, FREDDIE MAC Yvette Gilmore said that in her 10 years at the helm of Freddie Mac's mortgage-servicing efforts, beginning with the Great Recession, she is proud to have played a role in more than 1.2 million homeowners being able to avoid foreclosure and stay in their homes. "I continue to speak with borrowers in their hometowns, participate in community and city town hall meetings, and regularly meet with Federal Housing Finance Agency leadership to ensure the important work we do to keep people in their homes is recognized and continues," she said. Overall, though, Gilmore said she is most proud of the more than 1,200 "dedicated" Fannie Mae servicers across the country who have helped preserve homeownership across the nation. Gilmore said the most important thing is that she has learned is having the ability to take risks. "We must ensure that we have the correct line of sight into the end impact of what we're working on for our servicers by facilitating an innovative and evolving change to the servicing industry to, ultimately, better serve the borrower," Gilmore said.
