Sara Davis, senior vice president at Freedom Mortgage, has vast knowledge of corporate management including vendor/supply chain, people management and implementing processes to run business functions more efficiently. She is committed to developing and educating her team to drive excellence throughout Freedom Mortgage.
Davis joined Freedom Mortgage in 2012 and rose through the ranks to her current role, responsible for vendor management and HR business partners. Davis joined the vendor management team when Freedom Mortgage’s in-house servicing division was being launched and worked with leaders to further build the division. Davis developed the fundamentals of a third-party oversight program to vet, select and ultimately oversee new partnerships.
In 2015, Davis was promoted to take the foundation of the program she built in servicing and apply the program to all of Freedom Mortgage for a centralized and consistent enterprise-wide approach to vendor management. She has continued to develop the vendor management program and her team of 14 vendor management professionals manage over 3,000 contingent workers from various vendors.
What is one habit that has helped you succeed?
I’ve never been content with the status of my work or existing processes — even if I built them myself. What has helped me succeed is continuously reassessing my work, my team and what we have implemented, so we can further improve.
