Anthony Frederick started at United Wholesale Mortgage 23 years ago, making his way from the mailroom to the senior vice president of sales. Throughout his 23 years, his passion for driving the company forward, supporting the wholesale channel and supporting mortgage brokers continues to grow and has helped UWM claim its stake as the No. 1 wholesale lender in the nation for six years in a row.
Frederick is the definition of how hard work can truly pay off. Now, as the SVP of sales, Frederick leads a team of nearly 800 sales team members working to support mortgage brokers as they grow their business and help borrowers across the nation. His passion is the motivation that leads the sales team and drives success.
Within all of his leadership roles, one thing has held true — Frederick cares about his team and strives to help make them better personally and professionally. His empathetic approach and over two decades of experience have given him the innate ability to put himself in other people’s shoes and coach them on a much deeper level. His connection to the people that he leads fuels the teams’ drive to build similar relationships with UWM clients.
Throughout 2020, UWM’s sales team was steadfast and instrumental in the company achieving 2020 production of $182.5 billion, which is 69 percent higher than its prior record production. This groundbreaking achievement was done at a time when the industry and UWM were learning how to work in a new, virtual environment. Frederick led the team and pivoted from tradition in order to adapt quickly and seamlessly.

“When I started at UWM, I quickly realized I was going to have to outwork everybody just to be average and if I was going to be one of the best, I was going to have to absolutely dominate from an effort standpoint.”
