“We are proud of this amazing growth in 2019 which is truly tied to our mortgage broker clients along with our 5,000 team members here at UWM,” said Mat Ishbia, president and chief executive officer of UWM, adding that the company’s growth “is aligned to the growth of independent mortgage companies. Brokers have chosen to work with us because of the great client experience, technology and speed we provide them.
