New American Funding, a national mortgage lender located in Southern California, announces they have been ranked by the Orange County Business Journal as the 5th fastest growing privately owned  company in Orange County, as compared to other companies in the ‘large company’ category. The list ranks privately held companies in Orange County based on their revenue growth over a two-year period, and defines large companies as those with revenues exceeding $100 million annually.

Previously ranked as #42 in 2012 and #29 in 2013, New American Funding has continued to grow throughout the years to their current position as #5 on the list.

“We couldn’t be happier to be winning this award again. At New American Funding, we are all about doing things differently and better than we did yesterday. I believe this has been one of the key components to our successful growth,” said Rick Arvielo, CEO of New American Funding.

Since 2011 New American Funding has opened over 90 new retail branches in multiple states across the U.S. The growth is expected to continue in the coming years with new branches opening up in Orange County, Redlands and Newport Beach.
