United Wholesale Mortgage Named NAMB Affiliate Company of the Year
The award was presented at the NAMB Annual Convention and Exposition in Las Vegas.
“We’re very passionate supporters of NAMB and the many initiatives they take on in order to strengthen the mortgage broker market,” said Mat Ishbia, president and CEO of UWM. “There’s no question that mortgage brokers are the best option for both consumers and loan originators, and we’re committed to doing everything we can to grow the wholesale channel to levels it hasn’t seen in over a decade.”
UWM teamed with NAMB to help launch the organization’s KickStart program, an innovative initiatve aimed at growing the independent mortgage channel by granting entrepreneurially minded loan originators with up to $10,000 to open their own mortgage broker shop. UWM was KickStart’s initial sponsor, contributing $500,000 to the program that NAMB hopes will include sponsorships of many other wholesale lenders throughout the nation.
UWM, which earned this distinction for the first time this year, is a NAMB Double Platinum industry partner, the highest level of support for the Association.
