PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jeff Coury, CEO of Mortgage Connect LP, a national mortgage services provider for the nation’s largest financial institutions, investors, servicers and government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), has been named the winner of the prestigious Ernst & Young (EY) Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 East Central Region Award. The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The award recognizes those who are unstoppable entrepreneurial leaders, excelling in talent management; degree of difficulty; financial performance; societal impact and building a values-based company; and originality, innovation and future plans. Coury was selected for the award by an independent panel of judges, and the award was announced during the program’s virtual awards celebration on August 5, 2021.
“This is an extremely coveted award, and I’m honored to be recognized. There is no question this has been a group effort, I am a representative of a team of extremely talented individuals who have contributed to Mortgage Connect’s remarkable success,” said Coury. “We started Mortgage Connect ten years ago with a vision to enhance the consumer experience during the mortgage closing process. Today, we are one of the country’s largest independent mortgage service providers.”
Coury joined Mortgage Connect in 2012 when it had only thirty employees and a few clients. Under Coury, the company restructured operations, expanded its offerings across the mortgage continuum, acquired five companies, created several Joint Ventures, and turned what was once a small, financially stressed company into a profitable, resilient company. Mortgage Connect now employs more than 2000 employees in nine offices nationwide, processes more than 450k transactions per month, and supports 17 of the country’s top 20 lenders and servicers.
For 35 years, EY US has honored entrepreneurs whose ambition, courage and ingenuity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Coury will go on to become a lifetime member of the esteemed multi-industry community of award winners, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of fellow alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries.
As an East Central award winner, Coury is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2021 National Awards. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced in November at the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies.
