DigitalRisk's Sadie Gurley recognized in Housingwire's 2018 Women of Influence

August 09, 2018

8th annual list highlights leaders ‘at the top of their game' who inspire others in their company, communities and beyond

MAITLAND, Fla., AUGUST 9, 2018 -- Digital Risk LLC, an Mphasis company, an end-to-end origination, risk, compliance, due diligence and technology services company that partners with the mortgage, consumer lending, financial services and other regulated industries, today announced that senior executive Sadie Gurley has been named a 2018 Woman of Influence by HousingWire.

Gurley, who joined Digital Risk in April as Head of Diligence Services, is one of 85 leaders recognized for leading the housing and mortgage industry forward. Compiled by HousingWire staff based on significant accomplishments within the past 12 months, the list includes executives in residential mortgage lending, servicing, investing and real estate as well as those in advocacy positions, such as nonprofits and government agencies.

"We could not be prouder of Sadie's numerous contributions to moving the industry forward and her work as a role model to the growing number of women pursuing careers in lending," said Jeffrey Taylor, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Digital Risk. "Sadie has earned her place in this very prestigious list of peers."

"This is an incredibly interesting and rewarding time to be in the industry, working with the great team at Digital Risk and our partners. Harnessing technology and innovation has allowed us to streamline the due diligence process, while adapting to a fast-changing regulatory and economic landscape," said Gurley. "There are so many inspirational leaders included in the Women of Influence at the forefront of these efforts and I’m honored to be counted among them."

HousingWire recognized Gurley’s leadership across the mortgage industry for more than 20 years, working both at leading financial institutions and companies she founded. At Goldman Sachs, she was a vice president on the asset backed securities and mortgage trading desks, where she was responsible for buying and securitizing mortgages, auto loans, manufactured housing and other asset classes.

In each role, she managed complex financial instruments and led initiatives to upgrade technology in the mortgage industry. The industry turned to her during and after the financial crisis to remediate issues through the recapitalization of troubled debt and participation in PPIP funds. She recently joined Digital Risk to head the firm’s due diligence business, created to manage an expected surge in mortgage securitizations. Sadie leads the company’s efforts to better deploy its best-in-class integrated solutions, facilitate rapid access to loan information from client systems and boost loan evaluation services.

This year's list is the largest in in the award’s history. "We had so many incredible applicants this year that even choosing 85 was difficult" said HousingWire Editor-in-Chief Jacob Gaffney. "This year, above all others, shows all of us the need to recognize powerhouse leadership in the mortgage industry. It’s our responsibility to recognize women who are at the top of their game, those who improve our industry, day in and day out, and help make a brighter future for every American in search of a place to call home."
