In his new role, Schmidt will be responsible for using his more than 35 years of experience in the mortgage banking industry, to lead more than 20 mortgage centers in communities across the state, including the Dallas metropolitan area.

"Whatever we need, he raises his hand to help, including serving as Interim Chief Mortgage Officer right before the pandemic hit," said Scott Gesell, CEO of Gateway First Bank. "As a result, what was intended to be a few months while we conducted a national search, turned into almost a year-long arrangement."

Schmidt has been with Gateway for more than 10 years serving in a variety of roles from area sales manager to chief mortgage officer over 165 mortgage centers in 43 states. When he joined Gateway, he built a team that started with Waxahachie, TX, and quickly grew across the state. Schmidt was consistently the top producer in the company year after year and even after stepping out of production for over a year, continues to hold the record of being amongst the top producers cumulatively in Gateway’s history.

"My passion has always been to work with our customers to help achieve their dreams of homeownership," said Schmidt. "It’s particularly nostalgic that my return to the field coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Waxahachie mortgage center in Ellis County. I have a special place in my heart for this team, the clients who entrust us with their mortgage needs and the many terrific referral partners we have gained over the years."
