Through a hands-on approach to leadership and unwavering dedication to her customers, loanDepot VP of Regional Production Mary Bane has built the company’s largest in-market retail region from the ground up. Bane’s inclusive approach also features her dedication to supporting and fostering growth for women in the industry through mentorship and professional development.

Bane, who started as a top producing loan officer, has built her in-market retail region in the Midwest from the ground up by taking a proactive leadership approach to create a work environment that empowers her team to thrive. Bane supports her team by offering regular coaching and mentoring, always making herself available to work through challenges, provide advice and go the extra mile for team loanDepot and the company’s customers.
