Award salutes top loan producers who also served their country

TULSA, Okla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gateway Mortgage, a division of Gateway First Bank, is proud to announce two of its team members, Todd Binkley and Joshua Allyn, have been recognized as Top Veteran Originators by Scotsman Guide.

For the first year, Scotsman Guide is highlighting veterans who also have reached the top of their profession as mortgage originators. Taking information from its annual Top Originators rankings, Scotsman Guide has broken out veterans by Top Dollar Volume, Top Veteran Women and top producers of U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) loans.

“Freedom isn’t free, and we are acutely aware of that at Gateway where we support members of the military who have made great sacrifices to protect our freedom,” said Scott Gesell, CEO at Gateway. “We are incredibly proud of our veteran team members and are pleased to see them recognized for their hard work by Scotsman Guide.”

Gateway’s core purpose is to strengthen families and communities through homeownership. The company believes in supporting community development issues such as veteran support. In 2017, Gateway announced a national partnership with Folds of Honor, a non-profit organization that provides educational scholarships to families of service men and women who have fallen or been disabled in combat. For every loan closed, Gateway commits $5 to Folds of Honor. Gateway has donated $270,540 to Folds of Honor in support educational scholarships since the programs inception in January 2018.
