2024 Woman of Influence: Sarah Dekin

Sarah Dekin

Sarah Dekin leverages her extensive experience in strategy, product management and marketing across both consumer and B2B sectors as president and COO at Hometap. Before joining Hometap, she skillfully built and led high-performing teams for notable brands such as Zipcar, House of Blues, California Pizza Kitchen and Virgin.

As one of Hometap’s first employees in 2017, Dekin initially served as chief marketing officer before advancing to chief operating officer and, most recently, added president to her title. During her tenure, her initiatives have not only been pivotal in establishing home equity investments as a respected product category within the home financing industry, but also remain deeply and positively impactful to the homeowners Hometap serves. Even in her role as a c-suite executive, she remains hands-on, readily available, approachable and eager to dive into the everyday details to ensure Hometap provides an exceptional experience for homeowners.

Under Dekin’s leadership, Hometap has successfully grown — recently reaching the significant milestone of $1 billion deployed in home equity investments and more than 10,000 investments made. Dekin does an excellent job representing Hometap as a spokesperson and has proven herself to be a distinguished thought leader. 

Dekin is also an advocate for women in the industry, and recently participated in the Structured Finance Association’s Women in Structured Finance panel, where she discussed her career journey and philosophy of how the qualities of thoughtfulness, courage, confidence and humility are key to being a leader.
