2020 HW Woman of Influence: Doreen Ghusar

Roostify, Senior Director of Regulatory Compliance

Doreen Ghusar

Ghusar’s two-decade career has included roles as a loan originator, a branch manager and a compliance manager.

In the past 12 months at Roostify, Ghusar led the company to place accessibility – not just of the borrower-facing application, but also the lender-facing interface – at the top of the design and engineering agenda. Ghusar ensures Roostify’s offerings are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. She has a passion for ensuring people with speech ability issues, visual impairments or difficult typing or hearing all have equal access to the digital mortgage lending platform. Another recent accomplishment includes guiding the product team on a groundbreaking artificial intelligence project. Ghusar is the chair of the Roostify Women’s Network, offering leadership within the organization to discuss and advise on what tools and experiences are necessary to empower the company’s female employees. She often encourages men at the company to attend the events in order to provide awareness and how to collaborate together to meet similar goals. Ghusar is a member of the Mortgage Bankers Association’s residential technology forum. There she collaborates with compliance officers across the industry to build clarity around tech issues for companies ranging from big banks down to small lenders.
