TULSA, Okla., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The woman who was honored last year as one of the Most Influential Women in Housing Economics by Housingwire is back in the Williams Williams & McKissick (WWM) fold to lead business development for expanded default solutions services, the company announced today. Reporting directly to former COO and now Default Solutions executive manager, Doug Turner, Lewis will be responsible for broadening WWM's relationships with banks, mortgage servicers, investors and other financial institutions to include time-definite disposition services through the all-new, Auction Network® online and mobile real estate auction platform.
Williams Williams & McKissick (WWM) is the parent company to Williams & Williams®, a worldwide real estate auction firm and the leader in global live auctions, Auction Network (www.auctionnetwork.com) and Velocity Real Estate Services, offering a broad range of services to real estate owners throughout the United States.
"Elsa is a consummate sales executive and part of our company's senior team. We couldn't be more delighted that she's chosen to return," said Pam McKissick, WWM's Co-owner and CEO.
Lewis is a 30-year veteran of the real estate and financial services industry and 25-year veteran of the REO (Owned Real Estate) industry. She previously worked for Williams & Williams (later WWM) from 2003 through 2013. Prior to that, she served in business development roles for First Credit Solutions/MidFirst Bank, Commercial Financial Services, managing the HUD REO portfolio, was an REO asset specialist with The Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC) and national sales manager for The Associates/CorporateLink, one of the first REO asset management companies in the industry. Lewis also served as national sales manager for Sooner Federal Savings & Loan.
According to Lewis she is perfectly prepared and poised to take on this new position, and return to WWM. "I don't think people realize the kind of support an organization like Williams Williams & McKissick gives their people until you're on the outside," offered Lewis. "The marketing, operations and strategic leadership are industry standards. I missed that and even more so the great executives who make up the team and the way the entire organization values women leaders."
Since January, Williams Williams & McKissick's default solutions group has enhanced its service offerings and, under Doug Turner's leadership has expanded their Velocity real estate management and acquisition company to handle clients' entire real estate needs from acquisition to valuation, maintenance, management and disposition. "We are incredibly excited about this business line expansion and what it means for our clients," added Turner. "Having Elsa back makes it even more exciting."
