As Divisional EVP of New American Funding, Elly Cummings is one of the company’s most valuable assets. Cummings is the strong leader her entire region both loves and respects and single-handedly kept her region afloat when the industry contracted by almost 50% in 2022. Cummings made sacrifices so New American Funding could ride the rollercoaster in the market and make it to the other side without closing its doors. 

In the last 12 months, Cummings has been dedicated to supporting the underserved initiative and increasing our division’s reach by 28% to the underserved markets with the goal of making homeownership accessible to all. She does this by helping loan officers teach classes on home readiness and by supporting local organizations, like the Twin Cities Diversity Fair, in their mission to empower Black, Indigenous and people of color to close the racial disparity gap.

Last year, Cummings was named a Twin Cities Notable Women in Banking & Finance, a Top Women in Finance and led her region to win awards like “Top 200 Workplace” and “Best Places to Work” by Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal among many other accomplishments.
