Gateway Mortgage Group Makes Inc Magazine List for 7th time

JENKS, Okla., August 24, 2017 – Gateway Mortgage Group, founded by Kevin Stitt, was recently named to the Inc. 5000 list for the 7th time. Gateway achieved the prestigious Inc. 5000 Honor Roll accolade with its 5-year honor in 2015, and the 2017 award solidifies Gateway’s place among the elite successful private companies in the nation.

Gateway’s 2016 revenue reflected a 3-year growth of 191% and other (current and past) honorees include Yelp, Halo Top Creamery, Dell, Domino’s, LinkedIn and Zillow.

“It is an honor to be recognized as a part of this unique, highly successful group of dynamic companies,” said Kevin Stitt, CEO of Gateway Mortgage Group. “It is a reminder that the investments we have made in our company, our people and the communities we serve have been pointed in the right direction for over a decade,” he added.

Magazine as we push towards our goal of becoming a top 10 mortgage lender in the nation.”
