TULSA, Okla., August 25, 2015 – Gateway Mortgage Group, a privately held mortgage company offering originations, servicing and correspondent lending, recently achieved “Honor Roll” status on the Inc. Magazine List of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies. The company is recognized as a multi-year honoree with its selection to the list in 2006, 2007, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

“America’s independent entrepreneurs represent a significant segment of our nation’s economy,” said Alan Ferree, President of Gateway Mortgage Group. “We are humbled by the level of success represented on the 2015 List and it’s an absolute honor to be included with many other well-known names identified this year.” Gateway’s 2014 mortgage volume was nearly $2B, it added more than 275 jobs and currently holds more than $6B in its servicing portfolio (43,000+ customers). “Last year was a banner year for Gateway and 2015 is already on pace to exceed 2014 production levels,” added Ferree.

“Gateway is growing,” said Kevin Stitt, CEO of Gateway Mortgage Group. “We continue looking for opportunities to build on our history of success by seeking new markets and innovative ways to meet the home mortgage needs of our customers. Equally as important as growing the company is creating a company that provides a unique culture that is engaging and rewarding for our Team Members.”

Magazine Honor Roll as a 5-time Honoree, Gateway has also been selected as a Top 100 Financial Services Company and a Top Oklahoma company in previous years.
