Joe and Rob Nunziata join three decades of groundbreaking entrepreneurs in the Financial Services category.


ORLANDO, FL (June 27, 2017) – EY announced that the co-CEO’s 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. Joe and Rob were selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special gala event on June 23, 2017 at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate.

“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 to a powerhouse mortgage lender with over 700 employees and developing industry-changing technology. We’re grateful to lead such a dynamic team.”

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.”

FBC is a direct residential mortgage lender comprised of four mortgage divisions – FBC’s retail division, a wholesale/correspondent group, Home Loans Today (FBC’s internet division), and a builder division. In 2016, FBC developed and produced a new online mortgage application system called SimpleLoan.com, in which a potential borrower can apply for a mortgage online and get pre-approved for a loan in 10 minutes or less. Bank statements and pay stubs are pulled directly through the application through the hundreds of financial institutions and employment agencies synced with SimpleLoan.com’s system. FBC’s development team has also created SimpleLoan.com for its TPO division, making online mortgage applications now accessible in the wholesale market.

FBC is headquartered in Orlando, Florida, with branches and/or licenses in 47 states. The company offers a wide array of mortgage products, including but not limited to purchasing, refinancing, rehabilitation loans, and construction lending. FBC is also the number one new construction lender in Orlando.
