Mortgage Connect LP
has been named one of America's entrepreneurial growth leaders by Inc., ranking number 1,504th overall on the 2017 Inc. 5000 list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies
. The list represents the most successful companies within the economy's dynamic privately held businesses. Against a backdrop of increased regulation, a declining refinance market, and rising interest rates, Mortgage Connect has expanded to provide comprehensive mortgage settlement services and has opened offices in California, Texas, New York, Alabama and Colorado.
"It's rewarding to see our hard work reflected with a rank on the prestigious Inc. 5000," said Jeff Coury, Mortgage Connect Chief Executive Officer. "We are proud of our growth and our ability to quickly scale yet maintain stringent quality and performance standards, and we are already prepared for a continued, stable growth trajectory. Our unique customer-centric culture coupled with strong operational excellence and superior technology play pivotal roles in our success. We will continue to invest in these areas to ensure we meet client and consumer expectations."
Mortgage Connect was recapitalized in 2012 to address the need for a high-touch, consumer-centric mortgage closing model that also addressed the rapidly changing regulatory and compliance environment. In addition to its 520 percent increase in mortgage closings since 2012, the company increased its U.S. based employees 216 percent, growing full-time staff to nearly 450.
"The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them."
