RICHMOND, VA., September 3, 2019 – Genworth Mortgage Insurance, an operating segment of Genworth Financial, Inc. (NYSE: GNW), continues to work diligently to put more people in homes through a focus on exceptional service, innovative offerings, and top talent. Kenny Turner, Director of Capital Markets, and Christopher Smith, Director of Enterprise Architecture, were both recently named 2019 HousingWire Insiders for their contributions to the mortgage industry by premiere industry publication HousingWire.
In its fourth year, HousingWire Insiders are the unsung heroes of their organizations that propel their companies to success. The list’s 50 winners are the “go-to” team members in their companies and represent a wide range of occupations within the housing industry, from lending and servicing to investments and real estate. The Insiders are professionals their companies turn to with their most important or challenging projects because their contributions and hard work lead to superior results.
Kevin McMahon, Senior Vice President of Customer Solutions, Genworth Mortgage Insurance, remarks, “It’s a pleasure working with Kenny and seeing him recognized for the great work he does on a daily basis. Kenny constantly keeps our business at the forefront of his decisions and leads a highly engaged team that does the same.”
“I’ve worked with Chris for years and his willingness to navigate challenges and find collaborative solutions within a timely manner, all while doing it with a smile, is one of his greatest strengths. Chris continues to push all of us to stay at the top of our game, and is very well-deserving of this recognition,” said George Reichert, Chief Information Officer, Genworth Mortgage Insurance.
“Our Insiders grow more difficult to choose each year as their talent and impacts to the mortgage and real estate industry continues to blow us away,” HousingWire Associate Editor Kelsey Ramírez said. “This year's winners are truly the secret weapons of their industry, and continue to push their companies to greatness and move markets forward.”
