This week Inc. Magazine released its 2nd Annual Hire Power Awards recognizing private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past 18 months. McLean Mortgage Corporation generated 75 new jobs from Jan. 1, 2012 to June 30th 2013, placing it among the top 20 private business job creators within the State of Virginia and within the financial services industry. McLean was ranked number six within the State of Virginia and 15th nationally within the financial services industry.
“We are proud of the fact that McLean Mortgage Corporation has grown to be ranked among the top 40 mortgage companies in the nation upon being founded five years ago. This growth has led us to be recognized by Inc. Magazine as a Hire Power award winner,” indicated Pat Peavley, CEO of McLean Mortgage. “Five years ago many in the financial services sector were pulling back and we saw an opportunity to service the mortgage needs of our clients. This continues today as other mortgage companies are laying off hundreds and thousands of workers this year. Instead McLean continues our expansion efforts with a commitment to continue to hire and not to lay off any staff in today’s tough financial environment.”
“For the second year in a row, we are pleased to recognize the employers who are putting Americans back to work for a second time,” says Eric Schurenberg, editor-in-chief of Inc. “The Hire Power Awards are the only awards that single out job creators. We think it’s fitting to pay tribute to company founders not just for their business prowess but also for their immense contribution to the welfare of U.S. workers and the vitality of the U.S. economy.” McLean Mortgage Corporation is among a select group of private growth companies that are Hire Power Awards honorees, leading the way in creating more American jobs. While the honorees are found across the country in 25 categories, industries with the most Hire Power companies include health, financial services, software, human resources and IT services. States with the most honorees include California, Florida, Texas, Ohio, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois and Utah.
