Nick Roach, president and chief lending officer of Mountain View-based Stone Bank, recently announced that the bank has created a home loans division and has hired mortgage industry veteran Jason Hornsby to lead the new team. Hornsby has 18 years of mortgage lending experience, most recently with Top Flight Financial and National Bank of Arkansas. He has expertise in Federal Housing Administration (FHA), Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), conventional and reverse-mortgage loans. Prior to entering the mortgage lending business, Hornsby gained experience in the pharmaceuticals and life insurance industries. He continues to hold a life insurance agent’s license.
“Our home loans division…will allow the bank to continue its profitability and growth plans by supplementing our fast-growing government-guaranteed lending program, which is originating millions of dollars of loans in Arkansas and around the country,” says Marnie Oldner, Stone Bank CEO.
Established in 1955, Stone Bank is a $375-million-asset bank with full-service banking centers in Mountain View, White Hall, Little Rock and Harrison. It also has an agriculture loan production office in Cave City.
