Chicago, Ill., Feb. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guaranteed Rate’s Chief Compliance Officer, Rebecca Blabolil and VP of Secondary Marketing, Leora Ruzin, will serve as featured experts on two panels during the 2019 NEXT conference, a bi-annual women’s mortgage technology summit occurring February 7-8 at the Hotel ZaZa in Dallas.
As the Company’s regulatory expert, Blabolil delivers strategic advice on regulations, contracts, insurance, marketing and sweepstakes, while ensuring that disclosures and marketing collateral are clear and compliant. At the conference, she will discuss how to effectively manage marketing efforts within RESPA guidelines.
“NEXT is an incredible opportunity to meet and interact with some of the most respected female leaders in the industry,” Blabolil said. “It’s truly a privilege to be representing Guaranteed Rate as a panelist on such an important topic.”
Ruzin is a 12-year industry veteran and has an extensive background in secondary and capital markets, with a specialized focus in compliance and technology. She is also a contributor to Mortgage Women Magazine. During the session, Ruzin will discuss the industry’s possible expansion into non-qualifying mortgage products and will outline the secrets to selecting non-QM products that generate strong profits with limited risk.
“It’s an honor to represent Guaranteed Rate and be part of larger conversations in our industry surrounding technology,” Ruzin said. “I’m excited to be on the forefront of innovative lending practices and cannot wait to learn from so many other successful women in mortgage lending.”
