United Shore Gift Creates Faculty Fellow Position in Sales at MSU


EAST LANSING — Troy-based mortgage lender United Shore and Mat Ishbia, the firm’s president and CEO, will create a new faculty fellow position with the Department of Marketing at Michigan State University through a gift of $500,000.

“Fellow positions enable us to recruit and retain the very best up and coming faculty members,” says June Pierce Youatt, MSU provost.

The United Shore gift will allow the Department of Marketing to provide support for a faculty member who has exhibited leadership in sales research and sales teaching.

United Shore’s focus on attracting and developing the nation’s top sales talent played a significant role in the company’s investment in the resources at MSU.
