Katie Sweeney is the chairman and CEO of the Association of Independent Mortgage Experts (AIME). Throughout 2022 and 2023, Sweeney established and successfully spearheaded dozens of advocacy initiatives to benefit the broker channel and homebuyers nationwide through AIME’s Broker Action Coalition (BAC), which led to the introduction and passing of legislative bills on Capitol Hill. Her influence has bettered the wholesale mortgage industry, and her dedication has directly impacted homeownership accessibility for military veterans, first responders, educators, low-credit families, minorities and first-time homebuyers. 

Within AIME, Sweeney is a driving force for positive change. Under her leadership, the association has increased its revenue, more than doubled the team’s headcount and optimized the businesses’ profit margin, budget and processes. In the past 12 months, Sweeney spearheaded not just advocacy, but resources. AIME’s largest national conference, the fifth annual Fuse, was the largest Fuse ever despite the declining mortgage market. This was due to her headlining keynote, and the other high-quality content that she was integral in conceptualizing. Additionally, she continues to prioritize mentoring female leaders within AIME, aiming to empower more women in the mortgage industry by appointing female AIME leadership, and personally mentoring female mortgage professionals whenever possible.
