TULSA, Okla., September 9, 2014 – Gateway Mortgage Group, a privately held mortgage company offering originations, servicing and correspondent lending, was recently ranked for the fourth time on the Inc. 500 | 5000 list. In addition to be ranked as one of the nation’s fastest-growing privately held companies, Gateway was also named as one of Oklahoma’s Top Companies (#13).
“Being a part of this exclusive list of America’s top entrepreneurs is an honor and we are proud of each Gateway team member’s contribution that made this happen,” said Alan Ferree, president of Gateway Mortgage Group. In 2013, Gateway’s annual volume surpassed the $1.5 billion mark in mortgage loan originations while the company added more than 100 jobs across their 60+ Mortgage Centers nationwide.
“Helping people and families get into a new home is what our company does every day,” according to Kevin Stitt, ceo of Gateway, “but at our core, we are driven to create fulfilling careers for people with strong character who want to make a difference in their community.”
Gateway has made the Inc. 500 | 5000 list in 2006, 2007, 2013 and 2014 and has been ranked as high as #325, in addition to being honored as a Top 100 Financial Services and Top Oklahoma Company. “We will continue to grow, seek new markets and market share while bringing on top mortgage professionals who share our same values and goals,” added Stitt.
Early this year, Gateway continued to push its growth plans forward with a significant expansion that established Mortgage Centers in the northeastern United States for the first time (Pennsylvania and New Jersey). The company now has more than 50 offices across the country and is licensed to originate and service mortgage loans in nearly 30 states.
