The mortgage industry has faced unprecedented changes and pressures in the past several years. Mergers and acquisitions have been a noted trend in the industry as company leaders seek to sustain their endeavors through the increased resources and economies of scale that M&As promise. However, a majority of mergers and acquisitions fail across all industries, attributable to a lack of corporate integration which is often traced to shortfalls in internal communications. Middle management is an underutilized resource in fostering effective communication to support M&As. This Capstone project proposes an enhanced communications role for middle managers in mortgage industry mergers and acquisitions, supported by primary and secondary research and demonstrated in a hypothetical communications plan.
