Small to Mid Sized Servicers Thrive - Don't Just Survive in the High Cost World of Servicing
Michael Adomatis, Servicing Technology Strategist, FISERV
Mark Rogers, EVP and Chief Administrative Officer, RESIDENTIAL CREDIT SOLUTIONS
Larry Walker, Managing Director, KPMG

It’s no secret that the cost to service loans increases with every new regulation passed, and every loan that goes into default. But is the cost to service loans too high to support servicing as a profitable business for small to mid-sized servicers or an opportunity to leverage a changing market? Join this panel in a discussion of ways your company not only can survive, but thrive in this opportunity-rich, albeit highly regulated environment.

Audience open discussion
This time will be used to hear how your peers are addressing these challenges and finding success..

Making the Most of Customer Complaints - How to Effectively Resolve and Learn From Customer Concerns to Drive Efficiency and Improve the Customer Experience
Lisa Ducharme, FSO Advisory Customer Experience Senior Manager, ERNST & YOUNG
Craig Martin, Director, J.D. POWER AND ASSOCIATES

With a spate of new rules and regulations related to the customer experience affecting the financial services industry, and mortgage specifically, firms are keenly focused on the topic of problems and complaints. Ernst and Young and J.D. Power will discuss how firms can effectively:

  • Improve the operational efficiency of complaints management
  • Manage customer complaints to turn them from a burden to a tool for positive change
  • Resolve customer issues to limit the overall negative impact on the customer experience
  • Reduce the regulatory risk to the organization
  • Improve the brand reputation in the marketplace

Those organizations that are able to improve the complaints management process realize critical cost savings, while continuing to improve the customer experience.  

4:45 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Homeowner Unemployment: Attacking the Roots of Foreclosure
Traci Luckhaupt, Vice President of Loss Mitigation, FIFTH THIRD BANK
Kristi Weigant, Chief Development Officer, NEXTJOB

Unemployment drives 50% of mortgage defaults. Yet most efforts focus on the expense side of the equation—modifications and credit counseling. What's been missing is a focus on the income side of the equation - specifically, employment. We will:

1) examine how unemployment affects borrower behavior and response to outreach,
2) analyze a case study of Fifth Third Bank's innovative and financially-profitable homeowner reemployment program and
3) explore the impact of reemployment on industry reputation management.
