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. Gateway notes that 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 focused on profitable growth and acquiring market share.
Gateway has an extensive franchise, with 170 retail offices 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,” said Gateway in a statement.
“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.”
