TROY, Mich. /eNewsChannels/ — NEWS: United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM), one of the nation’s largest and fastest growing wholesale lenders, announced that it earned a spot on HousingWire’s inaugural HW Fast50 list. UWM is referred to on the list as United Shore, which is its parent company. The company’s growth was derived almost entirely from UWM’s wholesale production.

HW Fast50 ranks both public and private high growth companies that are driving mortgages and housing forward. The company ranked number 39 on the HW Fast50 list with a growth rate of 35.1 percent based on 2012 revenue of $180,487,333 spiking to $243,796,572 in 2013.

“We are pleased to have made the new HW Fast50 list as we continually grow at a rapid rate and report banner years,” said Mat Ishbia, president and CEO of UWM. “Our ongoing growth is based on the tremendous service levels and innovative tools that we provide to our clients to help them be as successful as possible. This comes with the strong relationships that we work hard to develop with our brokers, who we view as highly valued long-term partners. We’re relationship driven, not transaction driven.”

Earlier this year, UWM was ranked in the top 25 percent of America’s fastest growing private companies on the annual Inc. 5000 list. With three year sales growth of 480 percent, the company was listed as number 1071 on the list, with UWM again being the impetus of organizational growth.

“Each of the companies on this year’s HW Fast50 represent a critical and vibrant part of the future of the U.S. housing economy, and have demonstrated their ability to succeed in a fast-changing business climate,” stated Paul Jackson, CEO and publisher of HousingWire.

Richard Bitner, president of HousingWire, added: “The housing finance and real estate sectors are critical components to the U.S. economy, and these are the companies blazing a future for the industry – and, indeed, for our entire economy.”

UWM/United Shore has more than 1,200 employees located at its corporate headquarters in Troy, Michigan. The company was recently voted the number one place to work in Metro Detroit by The Best & Brightest Companies to Work For.
