Roostify Celebrates Winning HousingWire Rising Star Award
Jessica Maschinski’s leadership in Compliance gets prestigious recognition
More great news from Roostify!
We’re excited about two recent awards from HousingWire, one of the leading sources of news and information for the U.S. mortgage and housing markets. Tomorrow we’ll post more on both awards, so be sure to check back then!
Today, HousingWire announced Roostify’s own Senior Counsel, Jessica Maschinski, was named one of the independent publication’s 2019 Rising Stars of the mortgage industry. The award is a tremendous recognition of Jessica’s tireless work improving accessibility and compliance in the industry.
Only 50 of each of these awards are given every year to a very select group of individuals; we couldn’t be more excited! Jessica moved to the Bay Area to join Roostify back in 2017 as a compliance manager. She has focused relentlessly on modernizing and improving accessibility for customers of Roostify’s clients and on ensuring that fourth party risks are identified and managed or mitigated. Her efforts benefit both Roostify’s clients and the customers who rely on Roostify’s platform for their mortgages.
HousingWire’s Rising Star program “recognizes industry professionals who have become leaders in their respective fields. Those who are helping move markets forward, each and every day.” Jessica has certainly helped Roostify move forward for the past two years.
Jessica’s efforts are instrumental in helping us modernize and improve accessibility and manage vendor (fourth party) risk. After completing critical foundational work on Roostify’s risk-management program, she is expanding her portfolio to address privacy risk management, including compliance with the recently enacted California Consumer Privacy Act.
As our senior counsel, Jessica continues to play a key role in Roostify’s focus on security and compliance. As she notes, “Lenders look to Roostify to provide the best, most secure digital mortgage solutions, so to be recognized by HousingWire for my contributions to Roostify’s efforts is a tremendous honor.”
The HousingWire award recognizes Jessica’s critical, foundational work that helped to create Roostify’s risk-management program. According to HousingWire, as she grew within the company, she then turned her focus to implementing third-party and privacy risk management. In her role at Roostify, Maschinski also assisted with audits and product reviews, in addition to building the internal control monitoring and testing program for the compliance team. Early on, Maschinski played a critical role in Roostify’s evolution and growth in both security and compliance. She eventually even assisted in the preparation of a series B funding request that ultimately resulted in a $25 million funding round. Her continuous contributions to Roostify resulted first in her promotion to director of compliance, and now to her position as senior counsel for the digital mortgage platform provider.
“Someone once said, ‘If you think you’re green you’ll grow, if you think you’re ripe you’ll rot,’ and that really stuck with me,” said Jessica in her HousingWire profile. “We can always learn, develop and get out of our comfort zone – nothing good happens there anyhow.”
