Chicago, IL, June 15, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- BBMC Mortgage, a mortgage company committed to serving those who serve and putting Americans in homes, was named to Crain's Chicago Fast 50 list. Every year, Crain’s ranks the fastest growing companies in the Chicago area. BBMC Mortgage appears on the list at number 8 after earning $99.1 million in revenue in 2015 and growing more than 2,600% in the past 5 years.
“Being named to the Crain’s Fast 50 list is a great tribute the entire Bridgeview Bank family and further solidifies our vision of surrounding ourselves with "the right people" great things will happen,” said Jeff Gennarelli, the CEO of BBMC Mortgage. “The recognition of a tremendous record over the past 5 years is great, but the truly rewarding part of growth comes from the thousands of happy customers and the hundreds of employees who continually do the right things enabling BBMC to generously give back,” Gennarelli added.
BBMC’s growth came through a focus on fundamental values and continuous evolution of how BBMC Mortgage operates. As the mortgage visionaries at Bridgeview Bank, Jeff Gennarelli and COO Chris Leyden brought in mortgage veteran Todd Jones to serve as the President of Retail Mortgage and propel the division forward. As a West Point graduate and Army veteran, Jones has taken his leadership and team building skills and used them to further bring to life Gennarelli and Leyden’s vision for BBMC Mortgage. The heavy emphasis at BBMC on empowerment and teamwork creates a situation where ideas become realities in an environment where people love what they do and who they work for. The entire BBMC team is aligned to the same goals and Jones attributes that mission consistency, combined with the technology, processes, and people as driving forces behind the jump to the top 10 on the Crain’s list.
BBMC also has “veteran’s first” mentality and has gone above and beyond sharing in their success with veteran and active duty military charities through what they call their Patriot’s Chariot Initiative. Through this program, each borrower gets to designate which partner charity receives a $150 donation from BBMC. This pay-it-forward program has resulted in BBMC making donations in excess of $500,000 in a year and a half. “Our Patriot’s Charity Initiative is our way of expressing gratitude to our veterans and active duty service members each and every day in a tangible and helpful way,” said Todd Jones. “Through this initiative, we’ve made giving back a part of the fiber that is BBMC Mortgage.”
