Freedom Mortgage Attracting Next Generation of Mortgage Leaders

Initiatives

First Flyer program revolutionizing the recruiting and training of future mortgage leaders


Mount Laurel, NJ - October 19, 2015 - Freedom Mortgage Corporation, a privately held, full-service mortgage lender licensed in all 50 states, announced it is actively recruiting and training its next generation of mortgage executives through its college recruitment and training program. The First Flyer program was created in early January 2015 to accommodate the company's growth and add fresh perspectives to its expanding workforce.

On January 26, 2015, Freedom Mortgage launched the first class of the First Flyer one year credit based rotational training program in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. Each month, a new class of recruits was placed in an existing cohort to co-mingle with the existing group. The program is managed by an executive staff, cohort leaders who manage and guide their teams, and coaches matched to help mentor and guide each participant.

Today, there are 100 First Flyers. Twenty-two are licensed loan officers, with others in rotating assignments while working towards their certifications. Cohorts and coaches support their teams with company projects, soft skill workshops and group networking events that augment the recruits' daily work responsibilities. The program is producing positive results and many First Flyers are performing above management expectations and even outperforming veteran employees. In January 2016, members of the first class will graduate.

The First Flyer pilot program is now a platform upon which Freedom Mortgage can build and grow its future leadership, states program founder and Freedom Mortgage vice president Michael Middleman.

The fundamentals of the program had its beginnings with college graduates who joined the company prior to 2015. Early shaping of work ethics and behaviors through our structured development program impacts career progression and success, which is why our program balances products and industry knowledge with team and corporate relationship building, says Middleman.

Freedom Mortgage is actively expanding its program by recruiting both recent college graduates and students from colleges and universities for First Flyer programs conducted in New Jersey, Maryland and Florida.
