President of National Operations, Cornerstone Home Lending

Julie Piepho, president of national operations, Cornerstone Home Lending

Julie Piepho, president of national operations at Cornerstone Home Lending, recently received the Andrew D. Woodward Distinguished Award from the Mortgage Bankers of America as well as an award from the Minority Mortgage Bankers Association.

Piepho’s career is marked by her propensity for going boldly into unfamiliar or unfriendly environments and prospering under pressure.

She started her career as the only female management train­ee in her company to be promoted to mortgage loan officer within eight months. From there, she’s been hustling her way to the top of the industry. After years of grinding as a mortgage loan officer, she became the first president of a joint venture between a mortgage company and a national bank.

As president of Cornerstone, she created the project man­agement department, established a fair lending apartment and the business intelligence department. Excellence through training and efficiency are the focus of her actions as president of Cornerstone.

Piepho serves as chair of the Colorado Mortgage Lenders Association and chairman of the Residential Board of Governors for MBA.
