Make Dreams a Reality within our Communities
Responsible for a variety of functions necessary to support the commercial loan origination process and ongoing servicing of the commercial lending portfolio, with particular focus on documentation. Supports and interacts frequently with lenders and other departments to meet deadlines and requirements to prepare accurate and complete loan documents for the loan closing. Maintains  working knowledge of commercial loan concepts, policies, procedures, government lending programs, SBA, FSA, and governmental & fiduciary laws (OFAC, Patriot Act, Beneficial Ownership).
Credit Culture – Lending Division 
The Board of Directors has established the following credit culture, which is fully supported by management. Wayne Savings Community Bank (the Bank) will provide loan products to all credit worthy customers without discrimination who have ties to the general lending area we serve. All loans will be for lawful purposes utilizing a loan structure that is in alignment with established policies procedures and bank risk appetite. Compliance with all applicable laws, policies and procedures, and regulations is mandatory and unethical or deceptive lending practices will not be tolerated.
Management will strive to cultivate a banking relationship with all our customers to provide for all of their financial needs. The primary source of repayment for all loans (with limited exceptions) should be derived from the borrower’s income. While collateral is generally viewed as a secondary source of repayment, the Bank believes all loans should be adequately protected with assets. The exception would be to financially strong borrowers who warrant unsecured credit. The Bank is generally conservative in its underwriting practices but will on a case-by-case basis approve riskier loans; however, the increased risk must be reflected in the loan structure, rate and fees. While all loan types will be considered, we currently do not entertain labor intensive loan products, such as, asset-based credit facilities requiring additional monitoring via a borrowing base, inventory floorplan lines of credit or indirect loans.
