“It’s a tremendous honor to be named one of the top entrepreneurs in and around our nation’s capital. Earning this recognition for something we find so personally rewarding makes it that much sweeter,” said Cunningham. “From Sales Boomerang’s outset, we have swung for the fences, taking on the biggest challenge facing one of the world’s largest industries. By correcting the mortgage industry’s deep-seated customer retention issues, we are making a positive difference for millions of everyday consumers, and we will continue to lead our company with the best interests of borrowers firmly in mind.”

“We want to marry borrowers’ interests with financial institutions’ offerings so they are always aligned. Borrowers never receive the wrong loan, and organizations don’t have to beg for borrowers’ loyalty because they have earned it,” agreed Kutsihin. “Over five years of amazing growth, we have proven that this model is the future of lending. Mark and I are very proud of what Sales Boomerang has accomplished and dedicate this honor to our more than 100 team members and the hundreds of enterprise lenders that share our vision.”
