Houston Business Journal released their annual awards that recognize women in Houston-area companies who are outstanding business leaders. Envoy Mortgage Chief Legal Advisor, Julie Caggiano, was among the candidates recognized for the “2020 Women Who Mean Business” award.
Caggiano is the Chief Legal Advisor to Envoy’s executive team and guides various compliance initiatives. After 21 years of law firm experience, Caggiano joined Envoy in 2010, equipped with a law degree and a MBA, allowing her to field both business and legal decisions for the company, making her a valuable force within the organization.
“It’s been a privilege to work with Julie for the last three years here at Envoy. She is incredibly devoted, trustworthy and respected as Envoy’s General Counsel, and I’m honored to have her as part of my leadership team,” said Ron Millard, Envoy CEO.
Since joining the company, her core focus has been establishing Envoy’s compliance management program. She also provides expert legal support regarding mergers and acquisitions, human resources and corporate governance.
In 2017, when private investor, Platform Partners, acquired a stake in Envoy, Caggiano seamlessly spearheaded the initiative that ultimately allowed for Envoy’s expansion. In 2017, she was named one of Houston’s Top 50 Women in Law by the National Diversity Council and one of Houston’s Top 50 General Counsel in 2019.
Caggiano stays abreast of changes in legislation through her work with the American Bar Association’s financial services community and by working closely with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and state regulators.
Caggiano is also a member of many professional and philanthropic organizations, including the Consumer Financial Services Committee of the American Bar Association Business Law Section, CREW Houston and the National and Texas Mortgage Bankers Associations. She is also President of the American College of Consumer Financial Services Lawyers, as well as Treasurer of the Boards of Houston Eye Associates Foundation and the Houston Delta Gamma Foundation.
