July 3, 2017 – EY announced that the CEOs of FBC Mortgage, LLC (“FBC”), a top mortgage lender based out of Central Florida, received the Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2017 Award in the Financial Services category in Florida. The award recognizes entrepreneurs who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
“It is a huge honor to be recognized by the Entrepreneur Of The Year committee,” states co-CEO Rob Nunziata. “We’ve come so far in nearly 12 years, going from a small team of about 15 people in Orlando to a powerhouse mortgage lender with over 700 employees and offices all over the country – Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, the Carolinas – and we keep on growing.”
Joe Nunziata, co-CEO of FBC, also reflects on the company’s success and humble beginnings. “FBC was founded right when things took a turn for the worse in the housing market. We were resilient and successful during that time and have continued to consistently grow our volume year after year. It’s been great to see the company grow so much – we’re very proud of where FBC’s been, where it’s at, and where it’s going.”
As a Florida award winner, the Nunziatas are now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2017 national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 18, 2017. The awards are the culminating event of the Strategic Growth Forum™, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
