LeaderOne Financial, one of the nation’s fastest growing mortgage companies, has been identified as one of the top 100 mortgage companies in America by Mortgage Executive Magazine! Noting that “the current economic turmoil offers plenty of cause for insomnia,” Mortgage Executive Magazine compiled the list of the top one hundred companies and banks in order to recognize the service, dedication, and hard work embodied by top performing institutions.

LeaderOne Financial placed 76th on the list, accounting for nearly one billion dollars of lending and originating over 5,500 loans. In an industry that’s experienced significant challenges over the past few years, LeaderOne has instead experienced steady growth and remarkable stability.

This latest recognition appears in the current issue of Mortgage Executive Magazine, which focuses on turning adversity into advantage, a skill used expertly by LeaderOne’s President and C.E.O., A.W. Pickel III. Mr. Pickel, commenting last year on the turbulent economy coupled with increased regulatory oversight, noted that current conditions actually serve to strengthen companies that embrace fair lending practices, transparency, and the entrepreneurial spirit.

Mr. Pickel, along with Mr. Brent Duhaime, Executive Vice President and Chief Production Officer for LeaderOne, were also recently named as two of the “top 100” mortgage executives in the nation by Mortgage Executive Magazine.
