Since joinging Altavera Mortgage Services in 2016, Debora Aydelotte has led the four-year-old company’s transformation from an up-and-comer to a national provider of third-party residential mortgage origination services.
Under Aydelotte’s leadership, Altavera has tripled its overall customer base, grown its origination licensing footprint by 30%, including expanding to 11 states in Q1 2017, and increased its staff by 70% while continuing gender pay equity and flexible work arrangements for employees. As of 2016, Altavera’s executive leadership team and staff is 80% female. The company has also succeeded in closing the wage gap, with average compensation among women staff members that is greater than or equal to that of the male staff.
The Denver-based provider of consultative residential mortgage fulfillment and due diligence services also expanded its leadership team and earned recognition from Standard & Poor’s Global Ratings as an approved third-party due diligence provider for U.S. residential mortgage-backed securities, a designation currently held by only 12 companies.
Aydelotte is both a seasoned mortgage executive and a passionate student of economics, specializing in interpreting mortgage industry dynamics and identifying strategic growth opportunities that maintain a strong risk position for her clients.
She is a recognized thought leader in executive diversity and inclusion practices, helping to shape D&I programs for national and global rms. She regularly shares recommendations and best practices for developing such programs in the mortgage industry through editorial contributions and speaking engagements.
