As an Associate with the Professional Loan Program (PLP) team, you’ll play a key role in structuring, negotiating and overseeing your own pipeline of new professional loans while ensuring that client expectations are met throughout the process.

  • Assist the underwriters by obtaining all necessary documentation from the client, and help respond to any underwriting questions.
  • Manage existing relationships, including program modifications and credit reviews, and look for opportunities to educate clients about the Bank’s other offerings and how these products and services could help meet their financial needs.
  • Suggest enhancements to processes and procedures in order to improve efficiency.
