Senior managing director
First Guaranty Mortgage Corporation

As senior managing director at First Guaranty Mortgage Corporation [FGMC], Jane Gershman interacts with all levels of employees, numerous business units and many vendor partners to ensure the success of the fast-growing national lender. Aside from effectively leading FGMC’s servicing oversight and post-productions teams, Gershman has spearheaded some of the firm’s largest initiatives in 2018, including the consolidation of three sub-servicers into one and the subsequent transfer of more than $50,000 MSRs. Additionally, she seamlessly led a large post-closing outsource function and integration.

Prior to joining FGMC in 2015, Gershman oversaw servicing, post-closing, the document custodial area, all MERS activities and investor reporting at SunTrust Mortgage. Her guidance led to the significant reduction of cost of servicing from 2011 to 2014. “Jane understands the big picture and is focused on the details,” a colleague says. “There is no doubt that she makes everything around her better.”

Outside of the mortgage industry, Gershman is committed to mental health advocacy, as well as advocacy for the rights and humane treatment of animals.
