STRONGSVILLE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Union Home Mortgage (UHM), a high-growth independent mortgage banking company with a world-class culture, today announced its partnership with Olympic gold medal winning pole vaulter, Katie Nageotte.
The Northeast Ohio native will team up with UHM for its “CLEVELAND, THIS IS FOR YOU!” campaign, set to kick off at the starting line of the Union Home Mortgage Cleveland Marathon.
“We are so proud to welcome Katie into the UHM family,” said Bill Cosgrove, President & CEO of Union Home Mortgage. “She dazzled the world in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, bringing the gold medal home to Northeast Ohio. She was a natural fit for us to partner with, as her story of perseverance and drive is inspiring and something we all can relate to – whether it be going for gold or owning your first home.”
Nageotte was born in Cleveland and attended Olmsted Falls High School. She went on to further her education and athletic career at Ashland University, where she became a two-time NCAA Division II Pole Vaulting Champion and a three-time All-American.
“I am so excited to partner with Union Home Mortgage,” said Nageotte. “Northeast Ohio holds such a special place in my heart, and it means so much to work with the Hometown Lender that has helped so many across the area—and now across the country.”
Nageotte made her Olympic debut during the 2020 Tokyo games, where she nearly failed to clear her opening height. Later in the competition, she cleared 4.90 meters (16 feet, 1 inch) to claim the gold medal. Moments after winning, Nageotte turned to the camera and said, “Cleveland, this is for you!”
Nageotte will be at the Union Home Mortgage Cleveland Marathon on Sunday, October 24, 2021. She will also be at Union Home Mortgage Cleveland Marathon Health and Fitness Expo presented by University Hospitals on Saturday, October 23, 2021, between 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. to sign autographs. OneTeam Partners facilitated the new partnership in collaboration with all parties.
