LINTHICUM, MD, July 25, 2018— NFM Lending is proud to announce that Pamela Knouse, Director of Operations, has been honored as an Elite Woman in Mortgage by Mortgage Professional America for her service and dedication to NFM Lending.

The Elite Women In Mortgage program recognizes inspiring and influential women in the mortgage business who are changing the status quo in a male-dominated industry. According to their website, the women who made the list “have overcome obstacles and broken barriers to become some of the industry’s top professionals. [They are] record-breakers, innovators, mentors and trendsetters who inspire the success of their peers every day and are using their collective influence to change the face of America’s mortgage industry.”

Knouse received the Elite Women 2018 award for her endless dedication to better her team and NFM. She is responsible for streamlining NFM’s operations, advancing the company’s, its clients’, and its partners’ interests, and spearheading the implementation of several of the company’s top initiatives. She has a proven track record of success as Director of Operations and is well-respected by her peers for her motivation to excel, desire to find solutions to problems, and her selfless and caregiving attitude.

“Pam is an unbelievable asset to our company and we are blessed to have her on our team,” said Bob Tyson, Chief Operation Officer/Chief Administrative Officer of NFM Lending. “Her tireless work effort and can-do attitude is something we all should try to emulate.”

Knouse was profiled in the Elite Women 2018 July issue of Mortgage Professional America Magazine, both in print and online.

“I am truly honored to be chosen as one of the MPA’s Elite Women in Mortgage,” said Knouse. “It is an achievement that I share with the team of people I work with every day at NFM Lending and those I have worked with throughout the years that have mentored me and taken the time to help me grow. My advice to women in leadership in the mortgage business is best said by Hillary Clinton, ‘Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world.’ As women in leadership, we have to continue to mold our teams and mentor them to succeed. We can make a difference and we do have a voice, so always let it be heard!”
