Down Payment Resource (DPR), the nationwide database for U.S. homebuyer assistance programs, today announced it has appointed Marcy Ash, AMP, as director of strategic projects. In her role at DPR, Ash will manage relationships with state Housing Finance Agencies (HFAs) and spearhead industry partnerships and strategies that help DPR deliver greater value to its customers.
“My passion is helping low- to moderate-income borrowers realize their dreams of homeownership, so I am thrilled to join DPR as the newest member of its dedicated team of housing industry experts,” said Ash. “I look forward to building upon the company’s exceptional reputation by connecting even more lenders, real estate agents and borrowers with the award-winning digital tools they need to expand sustainable homeownership accessibility.”
Prior to joining the DPR team, Ash was assistant vice president and senior product manager at Huntington Bank, where she was responsible for developing, implementing and managing the company’s affordable lending products and programs.
