Quontic Bank is growing along with the demand for mortgages. The New York City-based bank’s Carmel location, which opened in January 2016, has doubled its loan production office in Carmel to 8,500 square feet and continues to add staff.
The office has grown from a handful of employees to 45 staff members. Quontic Bank plans to hire 20 additional staff members in the next several months, including additional loan officers, compliance officers, sales managers and administrative assistants.
Quontic Bank’s Carmel location processes loans from a wide-ranging portfolio consisting of local and national clients.
Tom Holsworth, business development manager, attributes part of the growth to the office’s synergy.
“We have a great location and a great vibe through the office,” Holsworth said. “We play music and we keep it fresh, always.”
Holsworth said the goal of the office is to work hard and play hard.
“Our fundamental focus is to understand the needs of the client. Sometimes we aren’t right for them and sometimes they aren’t right for us. Being able to understand that, I believe, puts us ahead of the competition. We aren’t just order takers, we are professionals,” Holsworth said.
Quontic Bank’s Carmel office is in One Penn Mark Plaza at 11595 North Meridian St.
