Offices are located in Arkansas, Missouri, and Tennessee.

Gateway Mortgage, a division of Gateway First Bank, announced the opening of three new mortgage centers in the first six months of 2023. The new mortgage centers are in Maryville, Tenn., Springdale, Arkansas, and Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Gateway has more than 115 mortgage centers across the United States and is licensed in 43 states.

“Gateway remains a growth-oriented company in select markets across the country,” said Scott Gesell, CEO of Gateway. “Our momentum is a testament to our team members’ persistent focus on connecting with people to impact their lives positively.”

“Mortgage loans have been a mainstay of Gateway since 2000, and we have navigated several up and down cycles,” said Steven Plaisance, president of Mortgage Banking for Gateway. “We will always be open to new talent and market opportunities, as the pursuit of homeownership will never go away.”

Gateway, headquartered in Jenks, Oklahoma, is one of the largest financial institutions in the state, with assets totaling over $2 billion. In addition to its nine banking centers in Oklahoma, Gateway has a strong mortgage presence nationally, with more than 115 mortgage locations and almost 1,000 employees.

The Oklahoma lender has downsized its footprint in the last couple of years. In March 2022, it had 170 mortgage centers.
