Homepoint named John Forlines as the company's new chief risk officer and Jean Weng as its general counsel. Both Forlines and Weng bring tremendous experience and a wealth of knowledge to Homepoint's proven executive leadership team, which averages more than 25 years of mortgage industry experience across the board, according to a press release.
"Their well-rounded skillsets and extensive backgrounds in the financial services sector will greatly fortify our business as Homepoint continues to rapidly grow and evolve as one of the nation's top mortgage lenders," said Willie Newman, president and CEO of Homepoint.
Forlines joins Homepoint following a 33-year career at Fannie Mae, where he most recently served as chief risk officer. In this role, Forlines oversaw the agency's enterprise risk management including credit and operational risk management for its $3.5 trillion book of single-family and multifamily loans. During his time at Fannie Mae, Forlines also held titles of chief audit executive and chief credit officer, roles in which he maintained a comprehensive view of corporate functions as well as credit risk related to underwriting and servicing risk management activities.
Weng comes to Homepoint after serving as senior vice president, deputy general counsel and corporate secretary at New York-based Voya Financial, Inc., a Fortune 500 company that provides retirement and asset management solutions. There, she oversaw the company's Board and Committee operations and advised the company's Board of Directors on corporate governance practices and trends, headed the company's government relations function, and led the company's privacy, procurement and intellectual property team. Prior to Voya, Weng had a 12-year career at Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP in New York, where she advised companies and underwriters on capital-raising transactions within the firm's Capital Markets Group.
