Candra McLaughlin just finished her second year making an impact at First Community Mortgage as vice president of regional operations. McLaughlin’s management style is perfectly in sync with her company’s leadership model. Her strong support of her operations and sales teams builds strong confidence in her ability to make things happen — timely and with quality. McLaughlin and her operations team are almost transparent to First Community Mortgage by doing what’s needed to get the job done and doing so in a way that seems effortless. She makes her supervisor’s job much easier by enabling them to focus on the big picture since she and her team consistently have their work humming along smoothly. McLaughlin exemplifies First Community Mortgage’s leadership model while encouraging others to do the same and, in fact, giving them the room to do so. She gives her team the motivation to rise above when things don’t go as expected and instead of looking for blame, she points them toward finding a resolution.
