Fishers, IN - June 28, 2018 - Freedom Mortgage, one of the nation's largest full-service mortgage bankers and a leader in government-insured lending, will celebrate its one millionth borrower at a festival in Indiana later this month.
The Spark!Fishers festival in Fishers, Indiana, will begin Friday evening, June 29 at Saxony Beach with a presentation honoring the company's one-millionth customer, followed by a concert from 90's hit band Sugar Ray. The celebration continues Saturday, June 30 with a 5K walk/run and farmer's market followed by a street festival with food, art and entertainment, an evening parade and a nighttime fireworks display. Freedom Mortgage will serve as the presenting sponsor at the inaugural event and participate in the parade alongside USO Indiana.
The company's one millionth borrower is a veteran living in Fishers and has been invited to join the celebration, where they will be presented with a monetary gift toward their mortgage. As a top VA lender, Freedom Mortgage is especially proud to honor this customer. Smaller celebrations will be held for Freedom employees at each of the company's larger offices nationwide on Thursday, June 28.
The second largest employer in Fishers, Freedom Mortgage has been in the community since 2006 when it acquired Irwin Mortgage. Freedom Mortgage was recently named a Top Workplace by The Indianapolis Star for the third year in a row.
One of the biggest joys of this business is helping people finance the homes of their dreams and improve their financial lives. Knowing we've done that one million times is something special," said Stanley C. Middleman, Freedom's founder and CEO. "The role Fishers has played in reaching this milestone is fitting as well, since the city is home to our largest office and the community is particularly close-knit. We're very grateful for the community's support, and we're looking forward to an incredible event.
In addition to the celebration, Freedom Mortgage will launch its First Flyer program in Fishers this summer. A career development program for recent college graduates, First Flyer lets those interested in the mortgage industry receive training and mentoring. The Fishers program will focus on servicing, currently the fastest-growing area of Freedom's business.
