MPA Magazine Names Danyel Shipley on List of Elite Women for 2021

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Dec. 20, 2021 – Mortgage Capital Trading, Inc. (MCT), a leading mortgage hedge advisory and secondary marketing software firm, announced that Danyel Shipley, has been designated to Mortgage Professional America (MPA) magazine’s list of Elite Women in Mortgage for 2021. The annual awards recognize successful women who are raising the bar on gender equality within the industry, making significant contributions, advancing their companies, and are consummate experts in their respective fields.


At the onset of COVID-19, while the mortgage industry was in turmoil, MCT subscribed to doing whatever it takes to ensure all mortgage lenders remained in business. As a Senior Regional Sales Director, Danyel was one of many on a team that responded to mortgage lenders (clients and non-clients alike) with insights, action, and results. Ms. Shipley displayed the special ability to make each individual client feel personally cared for and supported, even during the darkest of times. Her solutions-minded mentality coupled with her outright tenacity helped lenders stay in business during the pandemic.


Ms. Shipley has been in the mortgage industry since the beginning of her career, possessing 20+ years of experience. In 2018, she was honored as one of Mortgage Banking’s Most Powerful Women by NMP Magazine and now in 2021, she is honored yet again as an Elite Woman in MPA 2021. “I have long been impressed by the women in our industry and am honored to be chosen for this award,” said Ms. Shipley. “I want to continue to provide quality information and guidance for all mortgage lenders and so together we can continue to elevate our industry.”


MPA’s Elite Women in Mortgage program is now in its eighth year of offering the awards. The MPA team reviewed all nominations, examining how each individual had made a meaningful contribution to the industry, to narrow down the list to the final 59 Elite Women. Winners were judged on scoop and success of their achievements over the past 12 months, their efforts in the D&I space and the level of community work they have done outside of their everyday professional role.
