Amrock Vice President of Escrow Named on HousingWire’s 2018 Women of Influence List
Detroit, Aug. 1, 2018 – Sherry Dukic, Amrock’s Vice President of Escrow, was announced as a recipient of HousingWire’s 2018 Women of Influence Award. The annual program honors high-achieving women across the U.S. housing industry who have made significant contributions in mortgage banking and real estate.
“The 2018 Women of Influence are an inspiring, amazing group of leaders,” said Managing Editor of HousingWire Content Solutions Sarah Wheeler. “These women are innovating in every area: technology, marketing, compliance, strategy, operations and more. Their energy and expertise are fueling the success of companies across the industry, and their impact is felt in every area of mortgage finance and real estate.”
The recipients represent a variety of occupations within the housing industry, each demonstrating leadership that inspires those in their own companies, in their communities and in the industry at large.
According to HousingWire Editor-in-Chief Jacob Gaffney, many of this year’s winners mentor other women in the industry, manage internship programs for college students or work with business groups in disadvantaged areas. Others coordinate volunteer programs for their team members or serve on advisory boards that inform the industry. Investing time and effort to see others succeed is a hallmark of this group.
“It’s no surprise to me that Sherry Dukic was chosen for this wonderful award,” said Amrock’s Vice President of Training and Development Kylie Quetell. “She pushes our organization and the organizations that we work with towards creating new and innovative best-practices, all while maintaining a continued focus on the balance between regulatory restrictions and client experience.”
Dukic is responsible for all closing and settlement services and post-funding operations for the company’s lender clients. She is the backbone of operations at Amrock, leading the company’s largest production team. Dukic holds Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt certifications and is an active member of the Property Records Industry Association (PRIA), American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the Michigan Land Title Association (MLTA).
Dukic is often described as a much-loved and respected leader with “poise in the pocket.” Known for setting the bar high, Dukic inspires team members and leaders alike to develop meaningful and impactful growth within Amrock and the industry that it serves.
A supporter of several local philanthropic efforts in Detroit, she feels passionately about giving her time and effort to organizations that impact people and communities with immediate needs, such as Ronald McDonald House, Focus: HOPE and Gleaners Community Food Bank. In October of 2017, Dukic helped organize a fundraiser for Shades of Pink in which her team raised more than $6,000.
At Amrock, Dukic and her team have developed a reputation as “community volunteering over-achievers.” According to Dukic, it’s her duty as a human being, not just as a team leader, to give back to the city and community that Amrock calls home. In 2017, her team led the company in volunteering with nearly 7,800 hours.
“Sherry is an incredibly impactful woman, both on a professional and a personal level,” said Quetell. “As a recipient of the 2018 Women of Influence Award, she epitomizes the type of leader that we should all strive to be, regardless of gender.”
