Gateway Mortgage Group Receives Oklahoman Top Workplace Distinction

JENKS, Okla., December 14, 2017 – Gateway Mortgage Group, founded by Kevin Stitt, recently received The Oklahoman Top Workplace distinction for the fourth time. Gateway also earned the award in 2013, 2014 and 2016. Other 2017 honorees include Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, Paycom, Ben E. Keith Co. and Encompass Home Health. The Oklahoman Top Workplace distinction is solely based on surveys completed by company employees.

“While growth and production are important milestones, we’re most proud of awards derived from our team members’ direct feedback,” said Kevin Stitt, CEO of Gateway Mortgage Group, “Distinctions like The Oklahoman’s showcase our commitment to our company’s culture and work environment.”

This award follows in a long line of recent accolades; the company has been recognized 17 times since 2012 for its growth, performance among its peers, and its culture as a top workplace. Some other awards include “50 Best Places to Work” by Mortgage Executive Magazine, “Top Workplaces” by National Mortgage Professional Magazine and “Top 100 Mortgage Companies” by Mortgage Executive Magazine. In August, Gateway was ranked on the Inc. Magazine 5000 List for the 7th time; this honor has been bestowed on less than 2% of all Inc. Honorees.

“Gateway has a strong commitment to continued growth,” said Mark Revard, executive vice president Oklahoma and east division. “As our company continues to grow across the nation, we take a focused approach in creating strong, stable jobs for our employees while supplying financing for houses that thousands of families will call home.”
