New American Funding, a national mortgage banker, is expanding its footprint in the Midwest, annoucing a new location in St. Robert, Missouri.

The company is celebrating its new opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday.

The new location will serve the residential mortgage needs in Fort Leonard Wood and its surrounding communities.

New American also hired Kevin Gibbs as its new branch manager of the location.

“This is an exciting chapter for New American Funding and I could not be more thrilled to play a role in this new venture,” Gibbs said.

“The company genuinely cares about what it is doing, cares about its workforce, and its customers; so I’m extremely blessed to be part of such a decorated, dynamic organization that’s poised to have tremendous success in serving communities throughout Missouri,” Gibbs said.

This location marks the fifth Missouri branch for the company.
