“Service beyond expectations.” It’s not just a core conviction at PrimeLending; it sums up the mindset that company president Steve Thompson strives for each and every day. And his dedication has made a valuable impression: we’re excited to announce that he recently received a HousingWire Vanguard Award.
This recognition is given to 40 executives in the housing and mortgage industry whose leadership has made a significant impact. We’re so proud of Steve! His hard work has played a key role in helping PrimeLending flourish.
Under Steve’s influence, PrimeLending has consistently grown national production numbers, ranking in the top 10 in purchase volume each year since 20121. He also built the production organization by attracting and retaining top industry talent and surrounding his team with best-in-class productivity tools, training, marketing and support. As a result, PrimeLending has maintained a 96% customer satisfaction rating2, earned more than 5,000 5-Star Zillow® reviews and has been recognized as a top workplace in several categories by Great Place to Work®3.
Steve joined PrimeLending in 2011 as the Western Division Manager, quickly earning a promotion to National Sales Leader in 2013 and becoming a highly valued member of the executive leadership team. In October of this year, he was promoted to president.
Nominations for this award were thoroughly reviewed by HousingWire editorial staff members and passed along to editors. From there, multiple meetings were held where editors chose who the recipients would be.
Last year, Kristi Harris, EVP of Operations, also won this award.
