Having developed professionally in the mortgage industry first in operations and later in risk and then into corporate strategy, Angela Fumo has taken her experience and focused it on her company’s greatest asset – its employees. Fumo appreciates the value that employees play in a company’s achievements and has the ability to build a culture of values, diversity, inclusion and success in a rapidly growing organization. Thanks to an initiative Fumo had already begun implementing, Wyndham doubled its number of employees from 250 to 500 in 2020 and plans to hire another 400+ this year. As Wyndham Capital focused on the adoption of robotics and automation within the industry, Fumo and her team did the same to increase efficiency and enhance the employee experience.
What is one habit that has helped you succeed?
“Having the courage to ask questions – about myself, about others, about certain work processes – is something that plays a big part in my career. There is so much power in just a few words. How are you? How does that work? Having the courage to ask a simple question or ponder an alternative way of doing things can help you connect, find commonalities, and deepen a personal relationship with someone.”
