iLending, a national automotive refinancing company based in Englewood, Colorado, opened its newest office in Richland County.
The facility is located at 1001 Pinnacle Point Drive, near I-77 and Farrow Road. Approximately 40 jobs will be available at the facility for those seeking employment.
“It is always exciting when a company opens its doors in Richland County, especially when it means more jobs for our strong and capable workforce,” said county council chair, Paul Livingston. “Council welcomes iLending to our community, and we wish the company great success at this new location.”
The company expects to hire 40 loan consultants within the coming months. Loan consultants are customer-facing team members, informing customers of their credit options and assisting to reduce interest rates on auto loans. iLending is seeking applicants with finance or sales experience for the positions.
Those interested can apply online.
“We’re thrilled to be in South Carolina, a state with a talented workforce, excellent educational institutions and significant footprint in financial services,” said Tom Holgate, CEO of iLending. “Our Columbia team members will work closely with customers across the country, guiding them through the refinance process to improve their finances and save money.”
ILending’s auto refinancing platform handles the entire loan process for customers, including finding the best rates, paying off the previous lender and re-titling the vehicle.
“We have built our business by providing the best possible customer service, and our new office will help us reach more consumers,” Holgate said.
