Foundation Financial Group Named Among Top 10 Mortgage Lenders

One of the nation’s fastest-growing financial services companies continues to collect more honors for its growth.

Foundation Financial Group debuted at No. 10 on the prestigious Jacksonville Business Journal list, an annual survey of area mortgage lenders. Foundation Financial Group reported a volume of $90.88 million in mortgage loans closed in 2010 from its Jacksonville regional center. The company has 60 employees in its Jacksonville location.

“Foundation Financial Group considers Florida one of our most vital markets as we continue our plan of national growth and expansion,” said Mark W. Boyer, Foundation Financial Group’s chief executive officer. “We just closed out another record month in the face of recessionary adversity. I am continually amazed at the dedication and tenacity of Foundation Financial Group employees, whose hard work earned this honor.”

The Jacksonville Business Journal honors came the same week that Inc. magazine named Foundation Financial Group one of the 5,000 fastest-growing companies in the U.S. In April, the Atlanta Business Chronicle honored Foundation Financial Group as the 15th fastest-growing company in its annual Pacesetter Awards.

Foundation Financial Group has expanded to new U.S. locations this year. In August, the company opened five unique storefront retail centers in Dayton, Ohio; Indianapolis; Kansas City, Mo.; Toledo, Ohio; and St. Paul, Minn. In June, Foundation Financial Group opened its seventh U.S. regional center in Dallas, Texas, and, in January, the company opened its sixth regional center in Rochester, N.Y.

But Foundation Financial Group isn’t just known for its growth; it’s also a great company to work for, and it upholds a strict ethics policy. Florida Trend magazine named Foundation Financial Group one of the “Best Companies to Work For” in 2011 while the Better Business Bureau serving Metro Atlanta, Athens and Northeast Georgia honored the company with a 2011 marketplace ethics award. In June, The National Association for Business Resources named Foundation Financial Group among Atlanta’s Best & Brightest Companies to Work For, and in January, Jacksonville Magazine named Foundation Financial Group one of Jacksonville’s “Companies That Care.”
