PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 5, 2018--Radian Group Inc. (NYSE: RDN), today announced that Jill Cadwell, senior vice president of operations at ValuAmerica, and Dave McCormick, senior vice president of inside sales for Radian Guaranty, have been named 2018 HousingWire Insiders Award™ winners. The HousingWire Insiders Award™ program recognizes organizations’ operational all-stars; the insiders that are a company's best-kept secret, yet vital to its success.

“This year’s group of Insiders exemplify what it means to get the job done and done right,” Online Editor Caroline Basile said. “Each of the mortgage and housing professionals we honored made incredible contributions to their companies’ successes and we’re excited to recognize their achievements.”

This year’s HousingWire Insiders Award™ winners include 40 “go-to” team members in their companies and represent a wide range of occupations within the housing industry, from lending and servicing to investments and real estate. The Insiders are professionals their companies turn to with their most important or challenging projects because their contributions and hard work lead to superior results.

The senior vice president of operations at ValuAmerica, a Radian company, Cadwell is the team’s newest, forward-thinking executive leader who takes pride in her industry and team. With more than 30 years of experience in the national title and closing market, Cadwell looks to disrupt the title business with new and innovative technology platforms, catering to both consumers and lenders. With a passion for both her staff and customers, her skills and background have made noticeable changes to the title services Radian has to offer. Since joining Radian in March 2018, Cadwell has helped build a strategy that will continue to make Radian a pioneer in the industry. Cadwell is based out of Radian’s Pittsburgh office.

“Jill’s innovative and technology-driven mindset makes her an invaluable asset to the Radian team,” said Eric Ray, senior executive vice president, technology and transaction services for Radian. “With more than three decades of experience, Jill is equipped with a vast amount of title and closing knowledge and her team is continually learning and growing from her leadership.”

Another strong asset to the team, Dave McCormick, is the senior vice president of inside sales for Radian Guaranty. He has been instrumental in establishing a high-quality, centralized inside sales function for Radian’s core mortgage insurance business that, balanced with its traditional field sales presence, provides a more cost effective, yet equally productive, means of supporting customer needs.

McCormick has spent the past year introducing an enterprise-wide inside sales coverage model to meet customers’ needs across the mortgage continuum. McCormick's efforts support the broader Radian focus of diversifying revenue streams with an array of products and services. Each day, McCormick continues to implement innovative and creative ways to keep both himself, and his team, competitive and strategically supporting enterprise-wide sales, showcasing himself as the ultimate team player.

“Dave is a team player who continuously motivates everyone at Radian with his positive, can-do attitude,” said Brien McMahon, chief franchise officer at Radian. “Because of his responsibilities, he is always thinking of every aspect of our business and how Radian can support our customers and their clients. He is a true leader who has fun, inspires others and is really one of our best kept secrets here at Radian.”
