GRB Adds 40 to Mortgage Team
Genesee Regional Bank is pleased to announce the addition of 40 new employees to our Residential Mortgage team. These industry veterans are former employees of First Rochester Mortgage and divisions, Eastcap Mortgage and CenterPointe Mortgage. The company’s founder, Armando Capuano, will become Vice President and Manager of Residential Mortgage Lending at GRB.
“Adding such depth to our team is testament to GRB’s continued growth and the strong opportunity in the local residential marketplace,” says Phil Pecora, GRB President & CEO. “We have served hundreds of clients since we started our residential mortgage department six years ago, and look forward to our substantially increased capacity.” In 2012, First Rochester and its divisions originated $200 million in local mortgage volume.
GRB’s mortgage team offers a high level of personal service, with quick lending decisions made locally.
“My team and I are excited about joining another growing organization focused on serving the local community, says Capuano. “Both First Rochester Mortgage and GRB have been Rochester Top 100 companies, and we anticipate continued growth now that our employees are working together.”
