Gateway Mortgage Group was ranked 957th on the Inc. 500 | 5000 list. The company was also recognized as number 64 of the Top 100 Financial Services Companies and number six of the Top 100 Oklahoma Companies. These lists represent an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest growing private companies. “We are honored to be included in a list that has some of America’s best independent entrepreneurs,” said Kevin Stitt, president and CEO of Gateway Mortgage Group. In 2012, Gateway’s annual volume surpassed the $1 billion mark in mortgage loan originations for the first time in their 12-year history. This year, Gateway crossed that milestone three months earlier than in 2012. “We continue to push forward with our significant growth forecast, expanding into new markets while hiring top mortgage professionals who share the same values as our company,” added Stitt. “At our core, Gateway team members are great people who believe in making communities stronger and giving families a place to call home. Our success is a direct reflection of each and every team member here at Gateway.” Recently, Gateway announced their further expansion in the Arkansas market, and has opened their first branches in both Iowa and Tennessee. The company now has 45 offices across the country and plans to continue expanding their footprint in the coming months.
