NewDay USA, one of the nation’s leading VA mortgage companies, Chief Operation Officer Michael “Mo” Oursler was recognized as one of the 2020 HousingWire Rising Stars. The list spotlights only 50 leaders under the age of 40 who are propelling the mortgage, real estate and fintech industries forward.
“Throughout Mo’s eight years at NewDay USA, he has worked his way up the ranks with remarkable leadership skills and emulates the values we live by to improve the lives of veterans and their families,” said NewDay USA Founder and CEO, Rob Posner. “It is no surprise that he is being recognized with such a prestigious award because Mo proves his dedication each day to shape and innovate the housing industry.”
HousingWire’s Selection Committee selects Rising Stars based on their professional achievements within their organizations. Their contributions to the overall industry, community outreach, client impact and personal success also factor into the committee’s decision. The winners represent leaders in mortgage origination, real estate sales, capital markets and loan servicing. Winners demonstrate leadership that inspires not only those within their own organizations, but also in their communities and in the industry at large.
Oursler was the architect of the NewDay USA Accelerated Underwriting Program, NewDay USA University, which trains and develops underwriters in a 24-month applied curriculum. In mid-March, Oursler played a critical role in shifting 500 plus employees to work from home within a matter of days due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Oursler is the ideal leader to drive company growth into the next decade.
Oursler earned an Executive MBA at Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania this past Spring 2020 and holds a BS in Finance from York College of Pennsylvania.
