Jennifer Edwards, Senior Vice President of Accounting Systems at loanDepot, Inc. (NYSE: LDI), a leading provider of home lending solutions, has been honored with HousingWire’s Rising Star award. This prestigious accolade recognizes leaders under the age of 40 who demonstrate exceptional leadership and innovation within their organizations and communities, as well as in the broader industry.

“Jennifer is passionate about making a difference for loanDepot, our communities, and the industry,” said loanDepot Chief Financial Officer David Hayes. “Her contributions have helped streamline and optimize the Company’s financial systems as part of our Vision 2025 strategy. It’s wonderful to see her receive this recognition as a go-to member of our finance team who is looked up to as a mentor and leader who embodies the company’s purpose-driven DNA.”

Edwards is known for her forward-thinking approach to accounting technology, continuously striving to enhance and improve loanDepot’s finance and accounting operations. She played a key role in implementing Workday’s Financial Management system and has been instrumental in strategic initiatives such as the launch of the company’s digital HELOC and transition to the new cloud-based Empower LOS.

“This is a well-deserved honor for Jennifer who is a true servant leader within loanDepot,” said loanDepot Chief Accounting Officer Darren Graeler. “She’s a team player who takes a collaborative approach that goes beyond the finance department as she actively mentors rising stars and builds connections across the company to promote innovation and support career growth for members of Team loanDepot.”

Reflecting on her role, Edwards said, “My father and godfather worked in the business, so as a second-generation mortgage pro, I am carrying forward their legacy and ushering in the next generation. I see accounting as the language of business, and understanding that language allows me to tell a story and add back value that goes beyond just numbers.”

In addition to her professional achievements, Edwards is actively involved in serving her Southern California community, volunteering for organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, Girl Scouts of Orange County, and the American Youth Soccer Organization.
