Santa Ana, California-based Carrington Mortgage Services  announced earlier this week its intention to expand into the Central Indiana city of Westfield.
The expansion will create up to 360 high-wage jobs by 2019, the company announced. Carrington plans to invest $3.17 million to renovate a 77,000-square foot facility in Westfield and have it operational by the end of the year.
"As a reputable mortgage company, Carrington Mortgage knows the importance of making sound investments," Indiana governor Mike Pence said in a statement. "Home to a balanced budget and triple-A credit rating, Indiana’s business environment is stable and strong. We are excited that Carrington Mortgage recognizes our talented workforce and commitment to keeping taxes low and has chosen Indiana as a fixture in its long-term business plan."
Among the positions for which Carrington will be hiring at the new Westfield facility are underwriters, sales and marketing professionals, servicing specialists, and customer service representatives. The company currently employs more than 1,000 associates in multiple branches nationwide, including more than 180 in Indiana.
"Indiana’s cost competitive business environment and the strength of the Central Indiana workforce made Westfield an ideal location for Carrington to continue to grow," said John Alkire, executive vice president of Carrington Mortgage. "We look forward to expanding our footprint in Indiana, and contributing to the local economy while extending our services and exceptional home financing products to our clients."
