First Internet Bank Expands Commercial Lending

Released on January 9, 2012

Posted in:

First Internet Bank today announced the expansion of its commercial lending capabilities in Central Indiana.  Once focused exclusively on commercial real estate, First Internet Bank now has the capability to offer a broader range of innovative lending solutions to meet the credit needs of the commercial and industrial segment, including manufacturers, distributors, small businesses, and non-profit and service organizations.

To lead this new initiative, Connie J. Shepherd joined First Internet Bank as its Senior Vice President, Commercial & Industrial Lending. Previously, Ms Shepherd has held senior loan management positions with Mellon Bank, National City Bank, and M&I Bank. Joining Ms. Shepherd at First Internet Bank are Christina Smith, Vice President and Relationship Manager, and Susan Sottong, Operations Manager.

“The addition of this new line of business complements our existing service offering and allows First Internet Bank to continue to grow by generating high quality assets,” said David Becker, Chairman and CEO of First Internet Bank. “Ms. Shepherd has earned a reputation in the local market for building successful teams to meet the credit needs of a wide range of businesses. She was the right person to launch this effort on behalf of the Bank.”

Regarding her new responsibilities, Ms. Shepherd noted, “I am thrilled to be a part of this dynamic management team and look forward to introducing the Bank’s lending capabilities to the local business community.”

Seamless Experience - John, Arkansas

“I found First IB online. I was a little skeptical at first, but I couldn't have been more wrong! We were moving from MI to AR, working with a different realtor on each end, and First IB made the purchase of our new home seamless. The...mortgage we received is piece of mind for the future and we couldn't be more satisfied with the service... “

Best Lender Experience - Ryan, Arizona

“This was the first time I've used an online lender and I would definitely use First IB again...The local lenders warned that I wouldn't get personal service using an online lender and warned me against it. I'm glad I ignored them because my experience was one of the best I've had with a lender. I wouldn't hesitate to use this lender again!“
