2023 HW Insider: Hannah McManus


Hannah McManus is undoubtedly a mortgage all-star, but that’s no secret. Her work in promoting education and equity — through internal and external marketing campaigns and product offerings – makes her the ideal candidate for this award. McManus is, first and foremost, a leader who believes “a rising tide lifts all boats,” which you will see expounded below.

Since July of 2021, McManus has served as Atlantic Bay’s director of branded family of companies. Playing an integral role in the organization’s offerings and partnerships, she oversees operations and marketing for Atlantic Bay’s company partnerships and additional services to provide borrowers with the complete homebuying experience with industry-leading insurance and home warranty products. McManus and her team created a hub of resources and assets to help educate and support consumers, employees and communities on affordable housing programs. Internally, McManus’s work on the marketing success plan helps new hires integrate into the company and establish their stakeholder team in three stages – learning, building and growing – instead of an unforgiving trial-by-fire approach. Additionally, she has been at the forefront of another company-wide initiative for the past year. “La Bahía” is Atlantic Bay’s complimentary collection of homeownership tools, resources and support for Spanish-speaking borrowers so they can build their lives, enjoy time with their families and take ownership in their communities. McManus has been a vocal leader of the initiative, including joining the “Lending Forward” podcast, alongside senior mortgage banker Alberto Gamez, to speak about the ways La Bahía is advocating for homeownership for Hispanic communities.
