GlennGlenn Astolfi, President & CEO

I was born in Virginia and we moved around the country (MA,NY,NJ,TX, MI,FL) while my Dad climbed the corporate ladder. I’ve been married to Pam for 30 years and we have 3 children (Amber, Gregory, and Thomas.) We live in Apex, NC. I enjoy traveling, reading, soccer, the gym and red wine. My finance degree is from Florida State and my MBA from University of Texas. I have been an entrepreneur my whole life. I started my first business when I was 14. Some companies I started or joined early (Barnes and Noble, Travelocity.com, DNJMortgage, Tryon Title) you may know but others (TravelFest Superstores and CruiseDirector.com) didn’t get as far.

After leaving Travelocity.com in 2002 I joined the then 5 person company DNJ Mortgage as a loan officer. Thirteen years later DNJ Gateway Bank Mortgage is a 110 person company, lending in 9 states.  I serve in the role of President and C.E.O.  Our parent company is the publicly traded Bank of Hampton Roads.  DNJ Gateway Bank Mortgage is headquartered in Raleigh, NC.

I was born and raised in Miami, Florida, but moved to Raleigh, NC to attend NC State University from 1987-1991 to obtain a degree in Communications. While at NCSU, I was a member of the men’s basketball team; I later played in the NBA for three years with the Orlando Magic & Boston Celtics. After the NBA, I played ball in Europe for eight years.

After my basketball career ended, I was a Realtor for two years before acquiring DNJ Mortgage in 2003. I currently hold the position of Chairman for Gateway Bank Mortgage, Inc. and its sister companies, including DNJ Gateway Bank Mortgage.

I am the proud father of four children: Christopher Jr., Tommy, Annabelle, and Hugo. When I am not working with our staff of mortgage professionals, I enjoy fishing, boating, and many other outdoor activities. I also serve on numerous boards, including Healing Place and the NC State Alumni Association; I am also a founding board member of The State Club.
