“It’s a great honor to be recognized alongside an outstanding cast of women in mortgage for the second year in a row,” said Lamphere. “The growth and initiative challenges presented to me at Mid America have been gratifying and allowed me a chance to further my skill set. My team is what makes this all possible.”

Lamphere was honored for driving Mid America’s efforts to advance its digital mortgage operations through her involvement in several company-shaping projects over the last year. Lamphere played a critical role in Mid America’s acquisition of American Southwest Mortgage and the company’s recently announced partnership with Spectrum Mortgage Holdings to provide warehouse financing for seasoned and “scratch-and-dent” loans through Mid America’s Whole Loan Trading program.

An architect of Mid America’s transition to eClosings and eNotes in the company’s retail, wholesale and correspondent channels, Lamphere’s vast knowledge of the digital mortgage landscape has been integral to the development and performance of Mid America’s digital mortgage application and closing platform, Click n’ Close.

“Kara has been a key player in successfully guiding Mid America through some of the company’s highest-stake projects,” said Mid America Owner and CEO Jeff Bode. “Her in-depth knowledge, focus and insightfulness allow her to see through the noise and deliver in complex and challenging situations. I am very proud of Kara’s accomplishments and congratulate her on this honor.”

Now in its fifth year, MPA’s Elite Women in Mortgage awards recognizes accomplished women who are leaving an indelible mark on the mortgage industry. Winners are peer-nominated and selected by the magazine’s editors.
