Brewer’s panel, “Staffing for 2019 and Beyond,” will take place on Monday, October 15, at 3:45 p.m. in Room 207 of the convention center. Speakers Loretta Salzano, president of law firm Franzen and Salzano, and Renee Zabel, vice president of human resources at mortgage lender AmeriFirst Financial, Inc., will also participate.

The session will present mortgage leaders with best practices for managing staffing challenges in the current mortgage market.

Session topics will include:

  • Identifying and retaining top talent
  • Sourcing new talent for today’s evolving staff roles
  • Right-sizing staff in a time of declining margins and industry consolidation/M&A activity
  • Navigating legal and regulatory requirements for staffing and loan originator compensation
  • Preparing for anticipated regulatory policy changes

“With rising loan production costs continuing to eat into profit margins, more and more lenders are re-evaluating the efficiency and productivity of their staffing strategy,” said Brewer. “I look forward to moderating a practical examination of staffing best practices and sharing actionable insights from LBA Ware’s newly published research on loan originator performance trends.”

“We are delighted to have expert speakers like Lori Brewer at the MBA’s premier national event, which hosts 4,000 mortgage leaders in our home city of Washington, D.C.,” said MBA Vice President of Industry Analysis Marina Walsh. “As part of our Business and Technology track, this session will provide actionable advice for organizational leaders. We also offer tracks on Market Opportunities and Policy Priorities as well as high-profile guest appearances by Dr. Janet Yellen, Magic Johnson and Kelly Clarkson.”
