TULSA, Okla., April 20, 2016 – Gateway Mortgage Group, a privately held mortgage company offering originations, servicing and correspondent lending, was recently honored by Mortgage Executive Magazine as one of the ‘50 Best Companies to Work For’.

“We take great pride that this award comes from the results of an objective, third-party survey that our team members took voluntarily,” said Kevin Stitt, CEO of Gateway Mortgage Group. “Gateway is constantly seeking opportunities to create a sense of community and engagement throughout all of our offices nationwide, and this award validates the finer points of our company culture,” Stitt added.

In 2015, Gateway’s annual loan volume eclipsed $3 billion dollars, the company added more than 368 jobs and currently services in excess of $8 billion dollars in residential mortgage loans (50,000+ customers).

“Growth is important and last year was a banner year for us,” said Alan Ferree, president of Gateway Mortgage Group. “As we move forward, it is crucial to continue providing our team members with a culture that fosters growth, loyalty and ultimately remains focused on our passion for strengthening families. Happy, engaged team members are at the core of providing excellent service to our customers and referral partners,” he added.
