Sally Wood, Senior vice president, Evolve Bank & Trust
Thirty years in the mortgage industry in just about every role possible prepared Sally Wood for her current position as senior vice president of production at Evolve Bank & Trust. She dove into the industry headfirst when she was hired to oversee a bank mortgage lending office with no experience. Not to be deterred, she read every agency’s guidelines from page one and jumped right in. Wood joined Evolve in 2009 and currently oversees the company’s national loan production offices.
Wood has been named a Top 40 Under 40 professional in Jackson, Mississippi, and has served as president of the Jackson Mortgage Bankers Association, three HOAs and various volunteer functions. Her philosophy is that “we are only as successful as those we support. That includes the originator, the branch and – always – the borrower!”
