FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA, USA, 23 Aug 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – First Heritage Mortgage LLC celebrates its 25th anniversary today. Its roots go back to Heritage Funding, which opened its doors in 1996 as the lending arm of Stanley Martin Homes. Today, First Heritage Mortgage celebrates a quarter century of innovation, market expansion, forward thinking and being at the forefront of digital home lending technology. The company is a leading direct lender, working with hundreds of real estate agent partners and dozens of home builders to help more clients than ever realize their home ownership dreams.
Alex Wish, CEO of First Heritage Mortgage, joined the company in 2000. His vision of transforming the company into a full-fledged retail mortgage lender has been realized and surpassed multiple times. Under his leadership, FHM has grown from a team of 3 employees serving Virginia to more than 250 operations and loan officers in 13 states and the District of Columbia.
Wish believes this success stems from building a solid foundation of a positive and inclusive corporate culture, coupled with finding the right team members who work hard and constantly innovate to keep the company at the forefront.
“In my opinion, over the years, the best decision I have made while managing First Heritage Mortgage has been to bring the most talented and customer-centric people to our team,” Wish said.
While 25 years is an important achievement, the First Heritage Mortgage team is dedicated to strengthening the future of the company for both its team and its clients. A major component of the success strategy for the next decade revolves around developing cutting-edge digital technologies that address employee and customer pain points.
“The lending landscape will change over the next 25 years,” said Phil Denfeld, chief operating officer. “But what will not change is our people-centered approach. We already have the tools we need to grow and stay competitive in a highly competitive industry: an innate focus on continuous improvement. ”
Denfeld said a key ingredient in the FHM culture is what set the company on the path to this important achievement and remains at the center of what will drive the organization’s further growth.
“We look forward to celebrating this well-deserved achievement,” said Banks Gatchel, President. “But the entire team is equally excited about what First Heritage Mortgage will achieve over the next 25 years.”
For the 25th anniversary, FHM has prepared a video that tells the story of the company – from humble beginnings to market leader. In addition, during the week, FHM will publish interviews with its senior management team, which will revisit highlights of 25 years of success, highlight current events of interest, and chart a vision of future success for the next quarter century.
