TULSA, OK – Gateway Mortgage Group, a privately held mortgage company offering originations, servicing and correspondent lending, announced its opening of a new retail branch and entrance into the Florida market with its newest branch at 1095 W. Morse Blvd in Winter Park, Fla.
Todd Shale has more than a decade of mortgage experience and manages the new branch. Shale was most recently the Florida sales manager for the REO Finance Group at a financial services holding company where he was selected as a Five Star Mortgage Professional for each of the three years the designation has been awarded in central Florida. The Florida branch serves the nearby counties of Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole and Volusia.
“Gateway has given me the opportunity to recruit and lead their first team of mortgage consultants in the state of Florida and grow Gateway’s production and name recognition within the state,” said Shale. “Gateway’s leadership team, origination platform and commitment to servicing its loans enable it to offer homeowners within central Florida alternatives to traditional mortgage lenders.”
David Robinson joined Gateway’s executive team earlier this year as regional vice president and director of alternative sales channels. Since being hired, Robinson has successfully assisted the company with its expansion into the Florida market and is responsible for meeting the new market’s needs.
“Todd’s work experiences enable him to expand Gateway’s market share throughout Florida,” said Robinson. “Our goal is to expand into the Florida market with a strong leadership presence while maintaining Gateway’s commitment to its values and providing clients with excellent service.”
