2020 HW Rising Star: Maggie Mae

Top of Mind Networks Lead Product Manager

Maggie Mae
Top of Mind Networks Lead Product Manager, Age: 34

With more than 10 years in the industry, Maggie Mae is a respected leader known by insiders as the “mad scientist” of mortgage marketing. She began her career as a junior loan officer in 2008, during a time of changes and challenges. Despite joining the industry at the same time that the DOW dropped 774 points in one day, Mae continued to come out on top. She swiftly moved into a role as marketing coordinator at Bank of America, followed by a role as head of marketing at Absolute Mortgage, where she helped grow the company from three to 14 locations in just 18 months. She joined Top of Mind in 2017, and continued to build and enhance the capabilities of the company’s market-leading Surefire CRM. Last year, Mae helped Top of Mind expand its multiple listing service coverage to over 650 boards across all 50 U.S. states, making its database the industry’s most extensive and making it easier than ever for loan officers to automate the creation of detailed, property-specific collateral for their customers and real estate partners.

“The media has long portrayed women as helpers in the workplace, not leaders (e.g., nurses vs. doctors, teachers vs. principals, receptionists vs. executives). Being a female leader in fintech comes with its own cross to bear. Fortunately, things are changing one executive and one company culture at a time.”
