Ellie Mae's Stephanie Durflinger and Patty Canady Named to HousingWire's 2018 Women of Influence List


 (NYSE:ELLI) the leading cloud-based platform
provider for the mortgage finance industry, announced today that
Stephanie Durflinger, vice president of product management and Patty
Canady, vice president of major and corporate accounts for Ellie Mae,
have been named to HousingWire's
2018 Women of Influence list
. This is the eighth year that
HousingWire has recognized the women leading the mortgage and housing
industry forward, and each year, the nominations grow more and more

"The 2018 Women of Influence are an inspiring, amazing group of leaders.
These women are innovating in every area: technology, marketing,
compliance, strategy, operations and more," said Sarah Wheeler, Managing
Editor of HousingWire Content Solutions. "Their energy and expertise are
fueling the success of companies across the industry, and their impact
is felt in every area of mortgage finance and real estate."

Eighty-five women are profiled on this year's list and represent a
variety of occupations within the housing economy, each demonstrating
leadership that inspires those in their own companies, in their
communities and in the industry at large. Some of HousingWire's 2018
award winners have worked their way up in traditional mortgage
companies, while others started their own businesses. Each woman has
made their mark in marketing, technology, economics, compliance,
operations and business development.

Stephanie Durflinger leads the product strategy and product management
functions for Ellie Mae platforms including Consumer
, Encompass
and AllRegs.
Most recently, Durflinger was instrumental in the development of the
general availability release of Consumer Connect, a completely
customizable consumer engagement solution that enables lenders to fund
more loans through an intuitive and highly engaging consumer experience,
without increasing the lender's total cost of origination.

Patty Canady has been recognized due to her expert support and service
to 2,400 Ellie Mae accounts. Last year, Canady spearheaded the efforts
to increase the company's catalogue of service products, as well as
introduce account managers that work hand-in-hand with customers to help
navigate their experience with Ellie Mae. Throughout her seven years at
Ellie Mae, Canady has driven company growth and provided new innovative
coverage models to serve her vast number of accounts.

"It is wonderful to see Stephanie and Patty recognized for their
leadership in helping modernize the mortgage industry and all of their
accomplishments and contributions at Ellie Mae," said Jonathan Corr,
president and CEO of Ellie Mae. "Throughout their time at Ellie Mae,
Stephanie and Patty have each individually had an enormous impact on the
success of the company and the mortgage industry at large."

"We had so many incredible applicants this year that even choosing 85
was difficult. This year, above all others, shows all of us the need to
recognize powerhouse leadership in the mortgage industry," said
HousingWire Editor-in-Chief Jacob Gaffney. "It's our responsibility to
recognize women who are at the top of their game, those who improve our
industry, day in and day out, and help make a brighter future for every
American in search of a place to call home."

Many of this year's winners mentor other women in the industry, manage
internship programs for college students or work with business groups in
disadvantaged areas. Others coordinate volunteer programs for their
employees or serve on advisory boards that inform the industry.
Investing time and effort to see others succeed is a hallmark of this
group, and should be celebrated in its own right.
