Rob Hunt has joined Gateway Mortgage Group, a privately held mortgage company offering originations, servicing and correspondent lending, as chief administrative officer.
Hunt has previously held management roles at both large and start-up-sized companies, including Capital One and Heritage Union, where he successfully built and managed cross-functional teams that focus on delivering brand-defining experiences.
A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Hunt served in the U.S. Navy first as a naval aviator and then as an intelligence analyst. During that time, he obtained the rank of lieutenant commander and was also recognized for his leadership and accomplishments with several medals, including a Navy Commendation medal.
In his new role at Gateway Mortgage, Hunt will have executive oversight of finance and accounting, human resources, information technology, and the legal and compliance teams.
As of the end of 2016, Gateway Mortgage had nearly $5 billion in mortgage originations, a servicing portfolio in excess of $11 billion, more than 130 locations and 1,000 team members nationwide. The company recently expanded its licensing footprint in states like Idaho, Nevada, Washington, Utah, Oregon and Arizona.
