JENKS, Okla., Oct. 1, 2018 – Gateway Mortgage Group, a full-service mortgage company founded by Kevin Stitt, announced accelerated recruitment efforts across the nation to support strong demand for its lending products. This decision comes at a time when much of the mortgage industry is experiencing slowed or declining growth, and many of the nation’s lenders are announcing layoffs. Founded in 2000, Gateway has relentlessly focused on profitable growth and acquiring market share.
Gateway has an extensive franchise, with 170 Mortgage Centers in 40 states and the District of Columbia. The firm expects annual loan volume to exceed $8 billion in 2019. Gateway attributes its success to the talented team members who have built the firm and a strong culture. Growth would not be sustainable without a clear focus on a core set of values and purpose.
Gateway is passionate about strengthening families and communities, and that begins with empowering team members by providing them with the right tools, products and robust operational support in their local communities.
Gateway provides a broad suite of mortgage products that provide lending solutions to a range of customers. These capabilities ensure mortgage loan officers can retain customers and expand their business. Gateway also offers a comprehensive benefits package, treats its employees with respect, and goes above and beyond to empower the families of the people who work there. The company has recently expanded its digital capabilities, deploying LinkStep, a state-of-the-art web-based digital mortgage experience that dramatically simplifies the home buying process.
“At Gateway, we’re committed to providing employees the support they need to succeed in the community and at the workplace,” said Stephen Curry, CEO at Gateway. “Our firm offers a great work environment, empowering lending solutions, and unlike many firms, we are well capitalized and have a long history of profitability. We are pursuing talented individuals to join our team who will benefit from our future expansion plans.”
Since 2012, Gateway has been regularly recognized for its achievements in customer service, growth, performance and its culture as a top workplace. It has received 28 accolades including “50 Best Companies to Work for” by Mortgage Executive Magazine, “Top Workplaces” by National Mortgage Professional Magazine, “Top Mortgage Lenders” by Scotsman Guide and “Top 100 Mortgage Companies” by Mortgage Executive Magazine. Most recently, Gateway was listed as a Contact Center of Excellence by Benchmark Portal and included in the 2018 Inc. 5000.
Gateway, founded by Kevin Stitt, is one of the largest privately held mortgage origination and servicing companies in the United States. Established in 2000 and headquartered in Jenks, Oklahoma, the company employs more than 1,200 team members in over 160 offices nationwide and currently services $17 billion in residential mortgages.
