The chance to think creatively and work with a startup drew Christina Bartning to National MI two years ago, when NMI Holdings, Inc. the firm's parent company raised over $500 million of capital in a private placement of its securities in April 2012 to launch a new private mortgage insurance company.

"I'm pleased to lead a team that has had a big impact on our brand awareness, education, and the outstanding support we give our customers," Bartning told the magazine.

Pete Pannes, executive vice president, head of sales with National MI commented, "Christina has been instrumental in making our company—a start-up in a very competitive business-- a recognizable name in just two short years. Christina led the public relations and media effort from day one through many important company milestones, including approvals from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in early 2013, issuing our first insurance commitments later that Spring, through our IPO in the Fall of 2013, and becoming licensed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia."

"I'm excited about the role I can play in National MI's future as we continue to drive our organization to become a market leader in the mortgage industry," Bartning said.
