A culture carrier and advocate for employees, Lynley VanSingel leads First Guaranty Mortgage Corporation’s Learning and Employee Experience team by storm. Her commitment to authenticity and learning initiatives have led to a robust corporate employee experience initiative, a community partnership with CASA and increased retention at the firm. VanSingel manages onboarding, ongoing training for sales and operations, annual compliance training, product rollouts and employee experience initiatives. In the past year, her team grew from three to 12 employees to meet the ongoing needs of the business. With this growth, she was able to scale up major projects including a revised and expanded operations training, improved onboarding for new hires and new offerings for employee growth. Under VanSingel’s leadership, FGMC launched the Pulse initiative which provides programs and opportunities for employees to expand their skills, connect with leadership, enhance their careers and get involved with their community. In 2019, her training team won first place in Strategic Planning at ATD Dallas in developing the outline for these programs. Additionally, VanSingel is active in the MBA, NEXT and the Association of Talent Development and serves on the Human Resources Advisory Panel at the University of Houston. Her compassionate but fierce leadership has been inspirational throughout her over 15 years in the mortgage industry.
