CBC National Bank’s Mortgage Division Surpasses $13 Billion Loan Production Milestone, Earns Additional Accolades

FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla., Aug. 16, 2016 – CBC National Bank, headquartered in Fernandina Beach and with branches in Fernandina Beach, Ocala and The Villages, Fla., and Beaufort and Port Royal, S.C., and with its mortgage banking division headquartered in Atlanta, today announced that in June its mortgage division surpassed the $13 billion mark in loan production.

The division passed the $1 billion mark in loan production in June 2009 and passed the $10 billion mark in June 2015. During the second quarter of 2016, the mortgage division continued to achieve robust funding and profitability, with more than $551.7 million in residential mortgage loans funded and $16.4 million in mortgage banking income during the quarter.

In addition to reaching the $13 billion loan production milestone, CBC’s mortgage division was earlier named by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution one of the “Best Places to Work – Atlanta” for the second consecutive year. For 2016 CBC ranked 54th out of the 150 companies receiving this honor; in 2015 it ranked 63rd.
