Cornerstone Mortgage, a division of Guild Mortgage, has been named a 2018 Top Workplace by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Cornerstone Mortgage, a division of Guild Mortgage, has been named a 2018 Top Workplace by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The St. Louis-based lender has been named a best place to work seven consecutive years, ranking 11th in the midsize company category in this year’s rankings. Cornerstone is the only mortgage banking firm to earn the Top Workplace distinction every year since 2012. It also earned the Ethics Award for receiving the highest score based on responses to the survey question: “This company operates by strong values and ethics.”
Based on survey responses from more than 44,000 people, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recognized 150 employers as Top Workplaces for 2018. The winners range from small businesses to some of the region's biggest corporations and share several key characteristics, including effective leadership, strong values, clear direction and motivated workers.
“Teamwork and employee satisfaction are extremely important to our culture of customer service, so we are proud to once again be recognized as a Top Workplace,” said Angi Stevenson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cornerstone Mortgage. “The passion and dedication of our employees has helped us continue to grow as we provide an ever-expanding array of mortgage options to more homebuyers in the Midwest. Their continued satisfaction with leadership and trust in the future of the company as part of Guild provide a solid foundation for continued growth throughout the region.”
Guild Mortgage, one of the largest independent mortgage lenders in the U.S., acquired Cornerstone earlier this year.
“Of the many things that attracted us to Cornerstone, its culture of collaboration and commitment to empowering its people were at the top of the list,” said Mary Ann McGarry, President and Chief Executive Officer of Guild Mortgage. “The results of this survey validate our new combined direction and belief that Cornerstone and Guild would be stronger together. We congratulate Angi and her team for continuing to be recognized as one of the finest companies in the St. Louis region.”
