From the cover feature on Finance of America’s Patti Cook to the commentaries and solutions that focus on the title space, our April issue highlights just how much the housing and real estate industries have grown and changed — and changed for the better as innovation and technology drive the space forward.
Starting on page 24, you can read about Cook’s retirement announcement at the start of this year, as she steps away from her role as CEO. The feature reflects on her successful career in finance that spanned 45 years, looking back at her time at Salomon Brothers, her experience at Freddie Mac as it went into conservatorship and some of her biggest accomplishments during her career.
“I feel very fortunate to be able to look back on a long career that has been filled with such rewarding experiences,” Cook said in her interview. Title also is top of mind throughout this issue, as the intersection of title and technology not only leads to better a borrower experience but also offers a way to address the talent gap in the space.
