company's Center of Excellence recognition is one of the most
prestigious awards in the customer service and support industry. The
Center of Excellence distinction is awarded to contact centers based on
best-practice metrics drawn from the world's largest database of
objective and quantitative data that is audited and validated by
researchers from BenchmarkPortal.

"The BenchmarkPortal Contact Center of Excellence award reminds our team
members that the steps we have taken to elevate the customer experience
are working," said Laura Packard, vice president of servicing at
Gateway. "As our sales channels continue to expand, it's crucial that we
not only maintain our current service levels but continue to seek
additional enhancements that deliver exceptional customer service well
after the loan closes."

operates more than 160 retail locations across the country. The company

Certification from BenchmarkPortal demonstrates a noteworthy commitment
to service excellence," said Bruce Belfiore, chief executive officer at
BenchmarkPortal. "The obvious beneficiaries of this commitment are the
center's customers, employees and shareholders."
