As we continue on our journey to become a better people company, we’re proud to announce Kelly Ann Doherty is joining our executive leadership team as our Chief Communications Officer. In this new role, Kelly Ann will be responsible for overseeing all facets of external and internal communications, as well as corporate positioning for WMIH (NASDAQ: WMIH) and its family of companies including its flagship brand, Mr. Cooper®.
Kelly Ann is a proven strategic communications expert, and has played a key leadership role in crafting and promoting our company’s story through several major initiatives, including the Mr. Cooper brand launch and the recent WMIH holding company merger. Kelly Ann is well known across our organization as an advocate for team members and our values, and in her new position, she will be integral in our efforts to further enhance our people-first culture. Along with her team, Kelly Ann has been essential in changing the way we communicate with those outside of Mr. Cooper, evolving our media outreach and social media channels, and, with one another, providing better tools and more opportunities to interact with our team members.
Kelly Ann will continue to lead the company’s corporate communications functions including team member communications, media relations, external affairs, issues management, and social media. In her new role, she will also be a key leader supporting culture initiatives to create a positive, encouraging and empowering work environment that puts a great customer experience at the center of everything we do.
Prior to joining Nationstar in 2016 as the Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications, Kelly Ann was Vice President of Corporate Communications at Elevate, a financial technology firm. She also served as a public relations and affairs consultant for four years and as a strategic communication staffer for a Presidential campaign and within President George W. Bush’s administration with a tour at the White House in Presidential Personnel and N.A.S.A. as a political appointee.
Creating a culture that inspires team members to achieve their highest potential is a top priority for me and it’s been a pleasure to watch Kelly Ann grow in to this position. She is the ultimate champion of our values, keeping the team member and customer experience at the top of mind in all she does. She is an amazing addition to our leadership team, and I look forward to the ideas and vision she will bring to the table.
