Liz Lisk, EVP Operations

During her tenure in mortgage, she has served in a variety of departments including compliance, where she provides insight from the vantage of an array of stakeholders. Liz’s success reflects what is possible for all mortgage professionals – a fulfilling career and an opportunity to make an impact. At Champions Funding, we are honored to celebrate this innovative Mortgage Star.

The passionate professional has had a hands-on role in the tech production, testing, and roll-out of the HERO Broker Portal and forthcoming underwriting portal.  Both were designed to improve flows and efficiency by empowering our partners.  Liz also streamlined the loan process by ensuring the user-friendly technology was programmed with compliance safeguards; she also sped up turn times by opting for an empowered decision-maker to manage each file rather than waiting for several touches and individuals. Her drive keeps her constantly enhancing services and procedures, making her a Champion for the broker partners she serves.

Liz’s passion for mortgage is complemented by her commitment to the company’s mission of serving the underserved.  In its first year of production, Liz and her team managed the Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) loans, designated for underbanked and diverse borrowers. Currently, she’s focused on the exciting launch of a new channel, expanding the 100% Non-QM wholesale lender into non-delegated correspondent lending.
