Kelli Yarbrough, Vice president, RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing Corporation
Kelli Yarbrough’s most recent accomplishment has been the successful development of RoundPoint Mortgage Servicing Corporation’s originations department. She built this team from scratch and created more than 100 roles in the process, while designing and implementing all the policies, procedures, systems and training programs required to establish the new department. This endeavor began in March 2016, and by August, the department had taken its first lock – an accomplishment in and of itself.
To support the evolution of the originations team, Yarbrough instituted weekly personalized 15-minute training sessions for the sales staff. She also created a personal accountability workshop for women within the RoundPoint organization that inspires them to embrace accountability and take control of their own success. “[Kelli’s] leadership style is grounded in empathy, building on individuals’ strengths and weaknesses, learning from mistakes, and cultivating confidence to inspire her peers and team members to be the very best they can be,” a colleague says.
Yarbrough believes in continuous education for herself as well, which is why she decided to return to school after 25 years. She is currently working on a post-bachelor certificate in women/gender studies and a master’s degree in liberal studies, and has also applied for a doctoral program in community college education.
