First Merchants Corp., the Muncie, Ind.-based holding company for First Merchants Bank, has reached a settlement agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)

Mortgage Equity Partners has merged with Stepstone Mortgage. Stepstone has been in business for over 25 years, retaining much of its founding staff during that time. Stepstone President, Conrad Rousseau III, is joined by Senior Loan Officer Andrew White, Senior Loan Officer Kimberly Gallagher, Loan Officer Assistant Caitlyn Morley and Underwriter Michelle Hasty.
 
President of Stepstone Mortgage, Conrad Rousseau is excited to join Mortgage Equity Partners as Branch Manager of the Marblehead, Mass. office. He is the Founder and previous Owner of Stepstone Mortgage Company, which he started in 1988 to provide personalized, custom-fit mortgage services to the North Shore community of Massachusetts.
 
“It is hard to make a move like this after so many years,” said Rousseau. “That said, there are so many benefits to joining forces with a larger firm that offers more product and programs, aggressive pricing and top tier technology, so as I look towards the end of my career this move seemed like the right fit for me and my team.”
 
The Stepstone senior team also comprises Senior Loan Officer Andrew White and Senior Loan Officer Kimberly Gallagher. White began his career with Stepstone as an Originator in 1993, and is thrilled to bring his 25 years of experience in the mortgage industry to MEP.
 
“We are thrilled and honored to have Stepstone join the MEP family,” said Sean Riley, President and CEO of Mortgage Equity Partners. “This is a wonderful match for us, as MEP and Stepstone share common beliefs about how best to take care of the consumer, educate the community and serve our referral partners.”
