Cari Gordon Named Fay Financial CAO

Cari Gordon has been named Chief Audit Officer of Fay Financial, the company announced in a press release.

In her new position, Gordon will oversee the strategy and operations of Fay’s Internal Audit team and its risk-based audit plan, ensuring the company is on top of its game in the rapidly changing market.

“I’m immensely excited about joining Fay. Everyone from my team up through the senior executive level has extensive experience within the mortgage industry, and I look forward to working with such a talented team with so much depth,” Gordon said.

She brings more than a decade of auditing experience and nearly thirty years of financial industry experience to the role.

Most recently, Gordon served as Internal Audit Director with USAA. But she began her career with the GSEs, moving through REO, vendor management, technology, and servicer oversight at Freddie Mac before landing in internal auditing at Fannie Mae.

Gordon is certified as both a fraud examiner and an internal auditor.

“We were so fortunate to find someone with Cari’s incredible experience in the mortgage industry, in addition to audit, to lead our Audit team. She’s a wonderful addition, and we look forward to working with her,” said Fay COO Howard Cohen.

Fay’s servicing arm recently named a new chief information officer, and the company added industry titan Stephen Thomas to its Board of Directors. This month, Thomas launched a new minority-owned national correspondent lender, FutureWave Finance, with Fay as an industry partner.

Tampa-based Fay Financial offers a range of products relating to residential real estate. Its loan servicing arm caters to more than 130,000 residential and commercial customers across the U.S.
