Lowrie, former chairman of the Mortgage Bankers Association and founder of Gateway Funding, has announced the launch of Vision Mortgage Capital, which she said is "dedicated to meeting America's emerging housing and changing demographic needs."Vision, based in Blue Bell, Pa., will be an operating subsidiary of Lancaster, Pa.-based American Home Bank. Ms. Lowrie has nearly 30 years of experience in the financial services industry, including many years as a senior executive at Commonwealth Federal. Ms. Lowrie founded Gateway Funding in 1994 with seven employees, and by 2005 the company had over 750 employees and revenues of over $100 million, she said.
