Credit Policy Senior Manager Brenda King and Government Relations Director Marc Zinner, were recently named as HousingWire Insiders for 2020 for their contributions to the mortgage industry by premier industry publication HousingWire.
“This year’s Insiders represent the unsung heroes of their companies; the team that, behind the scenes, kept everything on track during unprecedented times,” HousingWire Magazine Editor Kelsey Ramírez said. “This year, the need for the services of these 50 winners shown greater than ever, and they rose to the challenge.”
In its fifth year, the annual Insiders list honors 50 winners who are the “go-to” team members in their companies and represent a wide range of occupations within the housing industry, from lending and real estate to investments and fintech. The Insiders are the professionals their companies turn to with their most important or challenging projects, and their contributions and hard work lead to superior results.

She works tirelessly to improve her own skill set, and that of her team, by constantly seeking feedback and supporting her colleagues. Brenda’s insatiable desire to make meaningful contributions to the business and industry is contagious and to be admired.”
“I’ve worked with Marc for years and his willingness to navigate policy and industry changes and find collaborative solutions, while doing it with a measure of common sense, are some of his greatest strengths. Marc continues to push all of us to stay at the top of our game and think differently about policies that impact our business,” said Duane Duncan, Senior Vice President of Government & Industry Relations, Genworth Mortgage Insurance.

Brenda is a true team player who maintains excellent relationships across all areas of the business and has long-been a firm believer in the popular saying, “There’s no ‘I’ in team,” and credits her success to her team, recognizing that they’re stronger together.
