Fishers-based mortgage company to add 300 jobs

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A Fishers-based mortgage company plans to expand into a new corporate headquarters in the Indianapolis suburb and add 300 jobs by 2015, the company announced Tuesday morning.

Stonegate Mortgage Corp. will move next spring from its current location near 106th Street and Allisonville Road to a 29,000-square-foot office at 9998 Crosspoint Blvd., near 106th Street and State Road 37.

Stonegate, which was founded in 2005, handles residential mortgage work such as processing and underwriting loan applications; managing escrow accounts; and purchasing mortgages from financial institutions.

The company serves 14 states in the Midwest and South. In addition to the Fishers office, Stonegate has five additional retail locations, with two in Indianapolis, two in Columbus, Ohio, and one in Overland Park, Kan.

The 162-person company with 88 Indiana workers has begun “actively pursuing new employees and will continue hiring in 2011 and beyond,” said Jim Cutillo, the company’s founder and CEO.

The new positions mostly include skilled jobs such as loan originators and processors, IT experts and business analysts, with salaries averaging $28 an hour.

Cutillo said the company’s strategic effort to avoid subprime lending—or offering loans to those with blemished or limited credit histories—has helped it succeed during a sour time for the industry. Cutillo formerly worked for major subprime issuer GMAC.

“I think it was irresponsible behavior—I also knew that it wasn’t sustainable,” Cutillo said. “I was looking to build a company that would last well beyond the subprime loans.”

That strategy initially meant slower growth for Stonegate, but it has seen an uptick since 2008, adding 150 employees and attracting new capital from two new equity investors.
 
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. is providing Stonegate $3.7 million in performance-based tax credits and $50,000 in training grants. Fishers also has offered the company a 10-year property-tax abatement of up to $760,000.

  1. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
