Gateway Mortgage Group Makes Inc. Magazine List Again

TULSA, Okla., August 30, 2016 – Gateway Mortgage Group, a privately held mortgage company offering originations, servicing and correspondent lending, was ranked for the 6th time on the Inc. Magazine 5000 List. Gateway achieved the prestigious Inc. 5000 Honor Roll accolade with its 5-year honor in 2015; the 2016 award solidifies Gateway’s place among the most successful private companies in the nation. The Inc. 5000 list represents an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest growing private companies and past recipients include Microsoft, Dell, Zillow, Under Armour, Zappos and many other now well-known brands.

“We are honored to be recognized, for the 6th time, in a list that includes some of America’s most exciting and creative entrepreneurs,” said Kevin Stitt, CEO of Gateway Mortgage Group. “Gateway is passionate about strengthening families and we get to live out that value every day by providing financing for homes, as well as creating more jobs that will support our team members and their families,” he added.

Gateway is licensed in 38 states and now operates more than 100 Mortgage Centers across the country. The company’s annual loan volume has grown 124% over the past 4 years and its loan servicing portfolio is expected to eclipse $10 billion in the fourth quarter of this year.

The company takes great pride in its culture of growth, family and purpose.
