Data from media analysis firm Sweet & Maxwell reveals that he was the most high profile FTSE 100 chief executive in the last year.The beleaguered Hayward, who was banished from BP to Siberia in July, was mentioned in 1,931 pieces of press coverage between September 2009 and September this year – and it wasn’t to compliment his choice of tie. To put that in perspective, Hayward’s numbers compare to an average mention count of just 151 for his FTSE 100 peers.But who else can claim the lucky accolade of such fame? British Airways’ Willie Walsh comes in second at 1,560 after spending much of the year locked in trade disputes with the Unite union. In at third place is outgoing Marks and Spencer boss Sir Stuart Rose with 1,223 pieces of coverage. And Rose was no doubt happier with his placing than famously media-shy Royal Bank of Scotland boss Stephen Hester, whom he beat by one place. Hester bagged runner-up position last year to Sir Fred Goodwin, but this year, he dropped to fourth with only 1,082 pieces of coverage. But if Stephen is missing the limelight there’s an easy solution: crack out his old hunting coat and tails outfit, the subject of a much-reprinted photo.MOULTON GROUNDEDAside from depressed high street retailers, there was another victim of the past week’s weather shenanigans: Better Capital chairman Jon Moulton. Having planned a quick trip up to Edinburgh yesterday to check up on an investment and give a talk at the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, he found himself facing airport closures. Particularly unfortunate given the intriguing title of his speech, to tackle the topic of government: “Cuts, Scratches and Wounds”. The coalition had better beware. ALL IN THE FAMILYThe Capitalist has learned that, like his one-time political master Lord Mandelson, loyal Labour servant Dan Corry will shortly be back in business, taking up a position in the New Year with the consultancy firm FTI. Corry, who spent the last three years working on policy and economics in Downing Street and whose former bosses include ex-Cabinet ministers Stephen Byers, Margaret Beckett and Ruth Kelly, will be working lower down the hierarchy than former government economist Vicky Pryce (also the estranged wife of environment secretary Chris Huhne). But surely politicos are used to catching up on their time in government over the next office’s water cooler? It’s a small world, after all.HIGH FIDELITYAnother reason to hire more women. Research firm Equiniti says its research shows that women are more loyal to their employers than men. The research found that 83 per cent of women asked would call themselves either somewhat or very loyal to their workplace versus 72 per cent for men. And, contrary to expectations, those below aged 30 are just as loyal as their older peers: one in four fit into the somewhat or very loyal category, the same proportion as for over-60s.As for how to tackle those disloyal middle-aged men, you could try an employee share plan programme – letting them buy shares at a discount. But the figures show that share plans actually work better with women: loyalty improves by threefold more among women offered shares than among men. It seems female stock is rising. center_img whatsapp Share whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The resulting feedback offered a diverse picture. Some dioceses were able to provide more detailed responses to our inquiries, and not all were able to contribute to this report.

She is a graduate of the University of Pune, India, where she received her B.A. in Commerce with a concentration in Accounting and Marketing and an M.A. in Mass Communication. Upon completion of her masters degree, Ojha worked at a national English daily publication in India (The Indian Express) where she was a staff writer in the cultural and arts features section. Ojha, also worked as Principal Correspondent at HT Media Ltd and at Honeywell as an executive in corporate communications. She and her husband currently reside in Houston, Texas. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Print Features Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago September 25, 2019 5,109 Views “Positive,” “optimistic,” “friendly,” “people person,” “innovative,” “expert” … these are just a few ways that people who have worked with him describe the leadership style of Tony Ebers, COO of Mr. Cooper Group.It is perhaps these traits, along with his innate ability to put customer experience before everything else, that’s driving the company culture at Mr. Cooper Group today.“In his role as our COO, Tony has taken on our companywide initiative to create an experience that places the home, rather than the transaction or loan, at the center of everything we do for our customers,” Jay Bray, President and CEO of Mr. Cooper Group, Inc., told DS News. “I’m personally very excited about the work he and his team are doing and the successes we are starting to see.”For Ebers, the power of the success behind these initiatives lies not with one person but all employees.“It really starts with, what is the purpose of your company? What do you stand for, how you treat team members. Is it a meritocracy? How do you reward not only results but also behaviors,” Ebers continued, “If you get that right, then you have a dedicated workforce that’s highly engaged. Then you are in a position to focus on high-end customer satisfaction.”Speaking about how employee engagement was integral to any company’s success, Ebers said that it all starts with how smart and innovative you are to forge a successful growth path.“You can’t even be in business if you’re not smart, good at product development, technology, managing compliance,” Ebers said. “But a healthy organization, one of high morale and high engagement, that amplifies the results of a smart company.”Looking back at his career, Ebers said that anytime a company functioned well, you could tie that success back to an “engaged workforce and a compelling vision of the future that people believed in.”Giving an example from the financial crisis of how smart, engaged people collaborating together could change the course of the industry, Ebers, who worked with IndyMac at that time, said they worked closely with the FDIC, the OCC, Treasury, “and a really smart team of individuals at One West to come up with the Home Affordable Modification Program.”“Many people played a role in that, but coming up with the industrywide solution to help people retain homeownership during the financial crisis was a difficult, humbling time. Being part of that solution, helping navigate it, and, over time, earning the respect of mortgage lenders back again, has been an important process,” Ebers said.Over the years, Ebers has helped develop numerous innovations that have changed the industry for the better, according to Kurt Johnson, Chief Credit Officer at Mr. Cooper Group, who has known Ebers for more than 15 years.“In my years of working with him, he has been at the forefront of initiatives including loan modifications, business process outsourcing, streamline refinancing, workforce optimization and diversification of servicing revenues, and  that names only a few that have transformed our industry. In all instances, Tony’s been a leader and the industry followed,” he said.Bill Glasgow, President and CEO of Glasgow Mortgage Advisors, and one of Ebers’ oldest friends and colleagues, also pointed out that Ebers’ “drive and determination in setting standards of excellence with not only himself, but the industry as a whole,” has changed the business for the better.“Tony has served the mortgage industry as a leader and visionary selling in both mortgage servicing and mortgage production disciplines—a rare combination,” Glasgow said. “His dedication to the company and industry is supported by a work ethic and core values that explains, in part, his career progression to the role of COO in two major mortgage companies in the last decade.”During this time, Ebers has also stayed true to the commitment to his work and the people around him. Perhaps that’s the reason he elicits complete loyalty from his team and peers. “I know dozens of people, at Mr. Cooper and Xome today for instance, who are there because Tony is responsible for bringing them in,” said Rayman Mathoda, CEO, Xome. Mathoda puts it down to the positivity he brings to the workplace.“I’ve only been a part of his core team a short while, but I can say that from the perspective of a peer, Tony’s a loyal colleague and a good friend to people,” Mathoda said. “There’s always a lot of dynamism wherever he goes, because he’s one of those people who’s always trying to create positive change.”Being a good friend also means inspiring them to do the right thing and setting an example by holding yourself accountable to those high standards. According to Gavin Brady, SVP, Mr. Cooper, Ebers’ ability to lead by example is paramount.“His honesty in directing people, being upfront, and really motivating them, is second to none in terms of setting bars, and also holding himself accountable,” he said.Ebers’ passion to do the right thing has been noticed across the industry.“Tony Ebers is a person who is always all-in. Tony sets his mission and goals, and then executes to success. If there’s a hill to be taken, he was always front and center leading the charge,” said Joseph Otting, Comptroller of the Currency. “Tony is one of the U.S. experts on residential mortgaging and servicing, and he uses his talents and skills to make homeownership available and affordable for all Americans.”Today, Ebers believes that the industry must focus on some areas that are likely to play a larger role moving forward. One is the liquidity at Ginnie Mae that many bank and nonbank servicers are likely to take advantage of in the near future. The other is the equity in the market that is likely to soften the blow if another downturn does happen.“If you think about last time, it was just the lack of equity and people that weren’t credit qualified to be in that loan,” Ebers said. “But over the last 10 years, the ability to repay was critical, creating a lot of equity, especially home equity. There may be a regional downturn, but it will be nothing like we experienced 10 years ago.”What does he think about becoming the recipient of Five Star’s 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award?“There are so many brilliant minds in this industry and, quite honestly, you can’t do it all by yourself,” Ebers told DS News. “The great, smart people I’ve always worked with and those around me keep me motivated to face the next challenge head-on. But it’s so humbling to receive this award. I’m excited and want to share it with all the people I’ve ever worked with as well, as that’s what it’s really all about.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Home / Daily Dose / Leading From the Front: Mr. Cooper Group’s Tony Ebers Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Leading From the Front: Mr. Cooper Group’s Tony Ebers Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

first_imgDNY59/iStock(NEW HAVEN, Conn.) — Fotis Dulos’ girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, charged in connection with Dulos’ wife’s disappearance and alleged murder, made her first court appearance Friday since his suicide.Troconis, appearing with her new attorney, Jon Schoenhorn, pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit murder, according to ABC New Haven affiliate WTNH.Troconis was arrested after Fotis Dulos’ estranged wife and the mother of his five children, Jennifer Dulos, went missing in May 2019.Her body was never found.Fotis Dulos was charged in January with capital murder, murder and kidnapping, while his girlfriend, Troconis, was charged with conspiracy to commit murder.For the first time, Troconis used Spanish translator headphones when she appeared in court Friday, after her attorney argued that English isn’t her first language, reported WTNH.Schoenhorn also asked that Troconis be able to remove her ankle GPS monitor because it’s causing chafing and bruising, WTNH reported.Schoenhorn told WTNH Thursday that it’s “unfair” that Troconis, after “posting a large bond,” is on house arrest and not allowed to visit her 13-year-old daughter.On Friday “the judge agreed to add a work condition to her house arrest” with a requirement of “no side trips,” reported WTNH.Police allege Troconis lied about when she saw her boyfriend on the morning his wife disappeared, according to an arrest warrant.In one of Troconis’ police interviews, according to court documents, “When Troconis was told that Dulos had killed his wife and involved her [Troconis] in the clean-up, she responded by saying, ‘That’s, like, even worse. I hate him because of that. … I was cleaning the house. I wasn’t cleaning Jennifer.’”On Jan. 28, Fotis Dulos was hospitalized in critical condition after his attorney said he attempted suicide. Fotis Dulos died on Jan. 30.Schoenhorn said he’s concerned Fotis Dulos’ death will make prosecutors look at his client as the “target.”“When the primary target of the prosecution is no longer in the picture, they [prosecutors] want to justify all the expense and time,” he told WTNH Thursday. “They got to go after someone else and that leaves, unfortunately, my client and Mr. Dulos’ former attorney.”Kent Mahwinney, an attorney and a friend of Fotis Dulos, was also charged with conspiracy to commit murder.Fotis Dulos and Troconis had been charged earlier with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and hindering prosecution.Troconis returns to court March 3, WTNH reported.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
