VRM Mortgage Services, an outsourcing solutions provider for residential and commercial assets, received several awards from DiversityBusiness.com for the third consecutive year.

DiversityBusiness.com recognized VRM as one of the country’s top diversity-owned and privately held businesses.

Out of about 1.5 million companies, VRM ranked:

  • 47th in the “Top 100 African American-Owned Business in the United States” category 
  • 158th in the “Top 500 Diversity-Owned Company in Texas” category 
  • 17th in the “Top 100 Diversity-Owned Company in Texas” category
  • 21st in the “Top 100 Privately-Held Company in Texas” category.

“The recognition from these awards renews our efforts to strive for even greater excellence as a company," VRM President and CEO Keith Murray said. 

“More importantly, I believe it is also a result of our efforts in our industry,” Murray said. “In this past year we’ve contributed a number or diversity and inclusion initiatives, including introducing a new self-assessment tool for our industry to advance this cause as a whole.”

In 2015, VRM’s training division, VRM University, introduced its diversity and inclusion self-assessment toolkit to provide a free alternative for financial service businesses to benchmark, document and report their compliance with the proposed standards mandated the Dodd Frank Act.

Additionally, VRM’s leadership serves on multiple industry boards for diversity and inclusion including the American Mortgage Diversity Council, the National Association of Women in Real Estate Business’ Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Council and Mortgage Bankers Association’s Strategic Diversity Committee.
