Employees were confident in the leadership team’s ability to take the company in the right direction and operate by strong values and ethics. The company also ranked highly in encouraging new ideas, having efficient processes, and keeping its employees informed about important decisions.

Waterstone Mortgage President and CEO Eric Egenhoefer attributes the company’s selection as a 2014 Top Workplace to its team of dedicated employees, who have created a positive company culture of innovation, entrepreneurial spirit, and commitment to excellence.

"Waterstone Mortgage is honored to be selected as a 2014 Top Workplace. This award is especially meaningful because it is based on feedback from our employees," said Egenhoefer. "We are incredibly grateful to our employees for their efforts in making us a top-tier mortgage company. Our company would not be what it is today without the incredible people who work here.”
