EY Names Rick and Patty Arvielo Entrepreneur of the Year Semifinalists, Orange County Region

New American Funding today announces that Ernst & Young named their CEO and President, Rick and Patty Arvielo, as individual semifinalists for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award, Orange County Region.

For the last 30 years, the Ernst & Young awards program has recognized entrepreneurs in over 145 cities and 60 countries who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in areas such as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

“We’re educating consumers on home loans and making mortgage as transparent as possible. We want to help people create a wealth building foundation for themselves, and I’m particularly drawn to creating services geared toward helping Latino consumers overcome common financial challenges,” stated Patty Arvielo.

Patty Arvielo manages nationwide sales and operations for the company, and has become a sought after keynote speaker for mortgage events across the nation. Her focus on underserved markets and the traction New American Funding has gained with Hispanic markets has earned the banker significant attention in the industry.

Focusing on operational efficiency through tech-centric solutions, one of Rick Arvielo’s recent innovations involves launching New American Funding’s proprietary software as a mobile app, GoGo LO, created expressly for the company’s Loan Officers.

“We want to create an exceptional experience with getting a mortgage, for our clients and for our employees who serve them. We want to help people save money wherever we can, and we’re proud of what EY’s selection says about our standards here”, commented Rick Arvielo.

EY nominations have a reputation for aggressive competition amongst a highly qualified pool of candidates. Rick and Patty’s independent nominations, as leaders of the same business, are largely uncommon.
