2018 Women of Influence: Michelle Donnelly

Chief Commercial Officer, Movement Mortgage

Michelle Donnelly, chief commercial officer, Movement Mortgage

As the chief commercial officer for Movement Mortgage, Michelle Donnelly has been the driving force in the company’s corporate strategy development and execution over the past year. She led the process with other leaders that resulted in Movement selecting three “strategic big bets” for its future. The bets are a commitment to investing in people development, world-class technology and a commitment to leveraging people and technology to result in marketshare growth.

Donnelly accomplished this by building consensus, challenging and coaching her colleagues and leading by example through her service to others. In her role, she leads corporate strategy, sales and marketing integration, talent development and human resources. Over the last year, she has identified new leadership in the company’s direct-to-consumer division, marketing department and talent and recruiting department.

She has had a significant impact on Movement’s $1 billion volume increase in 2017 to $13 billion total and its projected growth in 2018.

A graduate of Harvard Business School, Donnelly previously led a progressive, 20-year career at Eli Lilly and Company, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical and biotech companies. She also volunteers with Samaritan’s Feet International and the Charlotte Rescue Mission.
