2018 Women of Influence: Amy Mahar

Senior Vice President and Director of Third Party Originations at Cardinal Financial

Daisy Lopez-Cid

Amy Mahar is seasoned a industry vet who cut her teeth at Stearns Lending, Credit Suisse and GreenPoint Bank before joining Cardinal Financial to launch its TPO channel. In Q1 2018, Cardinal’s wholesale grew by 268%, and its proprietary technology, Octane, has been the talk of the wholesale channel over the past year.

After taking on the challenge of launching wholesale and correspondent channels at Cardinal, Mahar meticulously built both the ideal team and process flow before launch.

For more than a year before Cardinal closed its first wholesale loan, Mahar was on board and building, making sure that every detail was in place.

Prior to joining Cardinal, Mahar served as a regional vice president at Stearns in the wholesale and non-delegated correspondent channels. After taking over an underperforming sales division, she rebuilt platforms and grew production by more than 400%. Earlier in her career, she was a founding member of the executive team at Credit Suisse that helped develop its wholesale and correspondent channels.
