The American Mortgage Diversity Council (AMDC) has taken another step to promote inclusion with the recent addition of Kathy Cummings, SVP, Homeownership Solutions and Affordable Housing Programs at Bank of America, to its council as co-chair. Cummings joins co-chair Michael Ruiz, Director of Supplier Diversity at Fannie Mae, in their mission to create a diverse and inclusive mortgage industry for all.
Cummings joined Bank of America in 2003 as the Technology Service Delivery Manager and then as the National Pricing Manager. She has been in her current position, where she manages non-profit strategic relationships and the bank’s Connect to Own fee-for-service program, since 2008.
“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to impact the mortgage industry in a way that goes beyond everyday operations,” Cummings said. “The American Mortgage Diversity Council’s focus is one that is in line with my own core values, and I am eager to further their, and now our, mission.”
Cummings, University of Missouri-St. Louis alumna, brings over 25 years of experience to AMDC, with previous positions at National Production LOS, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Prudential Home Mortgage. Beyond her career at Bank of America, she volunteers in underserved communities, is a member of the Community Link Board of Directors, NCHEC Advisory Council, and the National Industry Standards Advisory Council.
“Having someone of Kathy's accomplishment join AMDC as co-chair is further evidence of how this organization brings leadership to the forefront,” Ed Delgado, President and CEO of The Five Star Institute said.
