“This acquisition brings together two organizations that complement each other strategically and culturally,” Schmid said. “By combining our collective strengths, Mutual of Omaha Bank and Synergy One will be able to serve more customers who are in the market for a traditional or reverse mortgage. With a strong capital base, dynamic distributions and robust back office operations, we will be able to offer a best-in-class mortgage experience.”
