Longbridge Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer, Melissa Macerato, is featured in the July/August cover story for Reverse Mortgage magazine, the official magazine of the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association (NRMLA).
The article, Rising to the Top: Female Reverse Mortgage Executives Discuss Their Careers and Offer Advice for Other Women, focuses on the increasing presence of women in leadership positions in the reverse mortgage industry. Interviews with multiple prominent female executives highlight the industry’s flexibility but recognize the need for further improvement in attracting and promoting women in the industry. Here’s an excerpt:
“Over the years, she [Melissa Macerato] says, the biggest opportunities came about because of managers and mentors who believed in her and gave her a chance. ‘This is something that I’ve strived to emulate as I lead people at this stage in my career,’ she also says. ‘Those who have great skills, make sound decisions and have strong overall business acumen are often highly successful in expanding their roles with the right coaching and guidance. Promoting from within and giving proven hard workers an opportunity to step up and grow their careers is something I pride myself on—and I’m thrilled that we’ve built this into our culture at Longbridge.’”
