National Mortgage Professional Magazine Honors MCT’s Rhiannon Bolen with 2019 Mortgage Banking’s Most Powerful Women Award

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Oct. 22, 2019 – Mortgage Capital Trading, Inc. (MCT®), a leading mortgage hedge advisory and secondary marketing software firm, announced that Regional Sales Director Rhiannon Bolen was selected as one of Mortgage Banking’s Most Powerful Women for 2019 by National Mortgage Professional Magazine’s (NMP).

Now in its second year, the annual list of Mortgage Banking’s Most Powerful Women highlights women that were instrumental to a major industry innovation, have overcome some seemingly insurmountable obstacles in their career to rise to the top, have paved the way for a brighter future among peers, and have forged extensive industry networks. When narrowing down the list of Mortgage Banking’s Most Powerful Women for 2019, NMP took three key words into consideration: Pioneer, Leader, and Innovator in compiling the top female leaders in the mortgage profession.

Most notably, Rhiannon recently was key in founding a women’s networking and education group to help promote and further opportunities for women in the state of Texas in the mortgage banking industry. Dubbed Texas Women Mortgage Bankers (TWMB), this group debuted at the February 2019 TMBA Annual Secondary Conference and was a huge success. In addition, Rhiannon has represented MCT at various industry events to help educate lenders on the utilization of cloud-based capital markets technology to assist in establishing newfound efficiencies and cost savings, among many other benefits.

“I am honored to be selected by NMP magazine for this year’s award and am very appreciative to those that nominated me for consideration by the judges,” said Bolen. “I’m always excited to take on new projects and initiatives that help advance the industry, MCT, and women mortgage professionals.”

Rhiannon Bolen, AMP is a long-time veteran of the mortgage industry and in her almost 20 years of working in the space has successfully built an extensive network of executives and influencers. Rhiannon is currently a Regional Sales Director at Mortgage Capital Trading Inc. (MCT). Before MCT, she was at Lenders One where she held the position of Region AVP for the Western Region. Rhiannon and her team worked with mortgage lenders of all types to identify targeted solutions aimed at helping reduce business costs and stay ahead of industry trends pertaining to processes and technology.

Prior to Lenders One, Rhiannon was the Regional Vice President of South Region field sales for Arch Mortgage Insurance. At Arch, she helped hire and train a team of account managers and was responsible for creating sales strategies and managing and developing various territories which led to over achievement of sales production goals. Previous to Arch, Rhiannon spent much of her career in the credit risk space, working in regional and national outside sales roles in the mortgage insurance industry. She also spent more than 10 years in business development at PMI. “Rhiannon has proven to be a valuable member of our sales team in a short period of time,” said Tom Farmer Managing Director and SVP of National Sales at MCT. “She has been key in helping to introduce multiple new MCT service and technology capital markets innovations over the past year and has helped create positive awareness behind the company. We laud Rhiannon for her unwavering commitment to moving the industry forward, her accomplishments as a female mortgage professional, and her ongoing efforts to support MCT’s expansion strategy. This award is well-deserved.”
