Homepoint CIO Maria Fregosi Named a 2021 Finance Leader by HousingWire


ANN ARBOR, MI, May 3, 2021 — Maria Fregosi, Homepoint's Chief Investment Officer, has been named a winner of HousingWire's inaugural 2021 Finance Leaders award. The distinction recognizes the mortgage industry's top finance executives who are driving financial performance, expanding margins, improving liquidity and helping their businesses access the capital markets.

Fregosi, whose 30-year career spans investment banking, portfolio management, asset and mortgage securitization, has been a member of Homepoint's executive leadership team since the company was founded in 2015 and a key contributor to the company's tremendous financial growth.

Initially serving as Homepoint's Chief Financial Officer, Fregosi was promoted to Chief Investment Officer in January 2021 and has served as the company's chief spokesperson following the debut of the company's parent entity, Home Point Capital, Inc., on the Nasdaq Global Stock Exchange (Nasdaq: HMPT).

"Maria has been a fixture at Home Point since the beginning and a key driver behind the company's overall financial health," said Willie Newman, President and CEO of Homepoint. "Her talent, knowledge and outstanding leadership capabilities are a huge part of the success our company has had and will continue to have."

Finance Leader honorees are selected by HousingWire's Selection Committee based on their professional achievements within their organizations, contributions to the overall housing economy, client impact and personal success.

"The last twelve months have been one of the most tumultuous and action-packed periods in the history of housing finance. It's incredibly notable that the organizations that had their financial strategy in order prevailed and were able to benefit from housing and capital marketing dynamics in a big way," said Clayton Collins, CEO of HW Media. "We launched the HousingWire Finance Leaders award to recognize the CFOs and senior finance executives who enabled growth, led IPOs and fundraising initiatives and helped their companies capture market share."
