Joplin Loan Center Now Open
Guaranty Bank's anticipated loan center in Joplin, Mo. is now open for business. Jeffrey Williams, Guaranty Bank's new Joplin Market President and an area banking veteran, was hired in April to oversee the Guaranty Bank Loan Center located at 2639 East 32nd Street, Suite R in Joplin.
"Guaranty Bank has been seeking opportunities to expand our footprint in Southwest Missouri for some time," Guaranty Bank President and CEO Shaun Burke said. "Partnering with such a respected and experienced banker like Jeff is the perfect opportunity for us to provide our business, mortgage, and consumer lending solutions in and around Joplin. We look forward to building valuable relationships with new clients in the state's fifth largest Metropolitan Statistical Area."
The new Guaranty Bank Loan Center provides a wide variety of Guaranty Bank's commercial lending services including SBA and equipment loans, commercial lines of credit, leasing, commercial real estate loans, and commercial construction loans. Mortgage and consumer lending services are also available.
Williams has more than 20 years of banking experience. He spent the last 10 years growing the Simmons Bank/Liberty Bank franchise in Joplin as Community Bank President before joining Guaranty Bank.
The new Guaranty Bank Loan Center in Joplin marks the bank's first facility outside of the Springfield Metropolitan Statistical Area in its 103 year history. Guaranty Bank operates nine full-service banking centers in Springfield, Ozark and Nixa as well as a loan production office in Marshfield.
