United Shore President/CEO Mat Ishbia has been recognized as a 2017 winner in The CEO of CEOs Category in the 4th Annual Best of MichBusiness Awards. The award is presented by the Michigan Business and Professional Association (MBPA), an organization that celebrates and promotes success and opportunity within the Michigan business community.
The award is given each year to the “leaders of the leaders,” the CEO’s of Michigan-based businesses that best exemplify what it means to be a leader in today’s economic climate. Ishbia’s leadership and team-focused business approach have been the catalyst to United Shore’s 752% increase over a seven-year span, as it has grown its wholesale division, United Wholesale Mortgage, from outside the top 100 wholesale lenders to the No. 1 wholesale lender in the nation for three years in a row.
Established by the MPBA, the Best of MichBusiness Awards are presented annually to local individuals and companies that make Michigan a top-notch place to do business. In addition to the CEO of CEO’s Award, the Best of MichBusiness Awards honors exceptional achievement in 16 other categories, including Community Leaders, Non-Profit Beacons, Stellar Start-Ups and Technology Gurus. Ishbia and the other 2017 Best of MichBusiness Award winners were honored at a gala event on Nov. 30 at the MGM Grand Hotel in Detroit.
