Movement Mortgage Relocates Operations Center To Norfolk, Virginia

Movement Mortgage, one of the nation’s fastest growing, privately held mortgage companies, will invest $2 million to relocate its operations center from Virginia Beach to the City of Norfolk, Virginia. The project is expected to create 200 new jobs.

“First and foremost, all thanks and glory to God for blessing us with this opportunity to continue growing here in Virginia,” Movement Mortgage Co-founder and Chief Executive Casey Crawford said. “We are excited to make a long-term investment by adding jobs and partnering with the Commonwealth of Virginia and the City of Norfolk. Our company began here, and we are continuing to expand with the talented and dedicated people we are able to recruit and hire in this region.

“I truly believe this investment is going to spark a massive wave of positive momentum for this community by establishing a dynamic, thriving hub of business activity at Military Circle,” added Movement Co-founder/Executive Vice President Toby Harris. “We’re looking ahead with great anticipation to serving borrowers, real estate agents, team members and communities from our new operations center in Norfolk.

Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the City of Norfolk to secure the project for Virginia. Governor McAuliffe approved a $600,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist Norfolk with the project. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.

Governor Terry McAuliffe said, “Movement Mortgage is an outstanding Virginia company, and we are thrilled that the City of Norfolk offers a facility that can accommodate the company’s rapid growth. This company’s continued success is a testament to the region’s business climate that will help us attract new companies to locate and hire in Hampton Roads. I am thrilled to announce yet another important step forward in our efforts to diversify and build a new Virginia economy.”

Mayor Paul D. Fraim, “Movement Mortgage is one of the nation’s fastest growing mortgage companies, and will bring new energy to the Military Highway corridor, setting the tone for the future redevelopment of Military Circle.”
