Churchill Mortgage announced that Founder and President Mike Hardwick has been named one of Nashville Business Journal’s Most Admired CEOs of the year. Churchill provides conventional, FHA, VA, and USDA residential mortgages across 46 states.
For the seventh consecutive year, the Nashville Business Journal has recognized Middle Tennessee executives for their leadership skills, business acumen, and community impact. This year’s award recipients were curated through closed voting by award nominees themselves to carefully identify which business leaders are most admired by their peers, Churchill Mortgage said in a statement.
“To be recognized by my fellow business leaders in Nashville, who all lead with integrity and care deeply for our community, is not only an honor for myself but for the entire Churchill team,” said Hardwick. “I have had the pleasure of leading Churchill these past 26 years, but it is only through the support and commitment of each and every employee that we have achieved such great success.”
A Nashville native, Hardwick founded Churchill Mortgage over 26 years ago. Under his leadership, Churchill’s team of over 350 employees has helped more than 100,000 families through the mortgage process.
Hardwick is also involved in the Nashville community and serves on numerous boards and committees, including the Churchill Foundation and as Founder and Board Director of Studio Bank. Hardwick previously served on the Friends of the Arts Board at Belmont University, on the board of Christ Church Nashville, as Chairman of the Finance and Endowment Committees of Christ Church, as Founder and Board Director of Franklin National Bank, Founder and CEO of SEC Realty Corporation, Founder and Owner of Escrow Services of Tennessee and founder and Owner of Churchill Insurance.
