Producing area manager
Academy Mortgage Corporation
An insatiable itch to run his own business led Umar Gebril to a career in the mortgage industry. As a producing area manager with Academy Mortgage, Gebril has more than doubled his volume since joining the company in 2014. Gebril closed $132 million in total loan volume in 2017, a 281% increase from his 2015 volume total of $47 million. Concurrently, Gebril has helped establish Academy solidly as number seven in market share among big industry players in the Seattle area – a staggering achievement, considering Academy had no presence in the area four years ago.
Gebril achieved his remarkable success with the support of a small but hugely supportive team; in fact, he names his team’s strong retention level in an industry notorious for job change as his proudest accomplishment. Gebril is also a member of Academy’s President’s Club and Leadership Academy.
