“Promoting safe and sustainable home ownership and bridging the home ownership gap that exists in minority communities is my top priority as MBA Chair in 2021,” said Susan Stewart, Chair of the 2021 MBA and CEO of SWBC Mortgage Corporation. “The mortgage industry has the opportunity and responsibility to open doors to those who are willing and able to buy a home.”
