TD Bank has announced that it will expand its residential mortgage business by hiring 75 mortgage operations employees in South Carolina. "Over the past two years, our residential mortgage business has doubled and we expect this growth to continue into 2011. Despite the tough economic times, TD Bank has consistently provided mortgage loans for purchases and refinance to our customers," said Michael Copley, retail lending executive vice president for TD Bank. "We attribute this success to the safety and soundness of the bank, and our high-quality people who deliver consistent execution of our WOW! service model. We are looking to add more employees of the same caliber to support our continued growth."
The new positions will be based in Lexington, S.C. and the new group will work in tandem with existing TD Bank mortgage operations centers in Lewiston, Maine and Mt. Laurel, N.J. TD Bank expects to fill approximately 50 jobs in the coming weeks. Positions will include mortgage processors, underwriters, closers and operations staff. In 2011, the mortgage operations team from Carolina First will be integrated into the Lexington, S.C. operations team bringing the total number of positions there to about 75. Customers will continue to be supported by residential mortgage lenders at TD Bank stores from Maine to Florida.
"We are excited to see TD Bank build out its mortgage operations in South Carolina," said Lynn Harton, head of regional commercial banking, south, TD Bank. "South Carolina is a great place to do business and with the acquisition of the South Financial Group, we have state-of-the-art, LEED-certified facilities and highly-skilled people in the state. This will help fuel TD Bank's continued growth."
