Want to know more about Kimberly Nichols?
Kim Nichols is currently leading the team that is driving growth in the wholesale channel for PennyMac, which includes both broker and non-delegated correspondent production. Under Nichols’ leadership, PennyMac has quickly become #6 in the wholesale lender. She joined PennyMac in 2011 as part of the core leadership team charged with building the foundation for what is now the largest correspondent investor in the country. Nichols spent the early days of her career in secondary marketing and capital markets, which she followed up with 10 years at PMI Mortgage Insurance and later became an industry leader in the correspondent space including positions at GMAC RFC and Bank of America.
Beyond leading her team and the business channels she supports, Nichols was recognized by HousingWire as a Woman of Influence in 2020, in part due to her role as co-founder and committee member of wEMRG–a business resource group with the purpose of empowering, mentoring and promoting the success of high potential females within PennyMac. wEMRG provides an informal professional forum for women in PennyMac by offering access and interactions with senior leaders. The forum also assists participants in growing their careers through sharing experiences, building knowledge, skills and relationships.
