Home Federal Bancorp, Louisiana-based mid-tier holding company of Home Federal Bank, has appointed David Barber as the senior vice president of Home Federal Bank’s mortgage lending division.
Reportedly, Mr. Barber brings 17 years of lending experience to Home Federal Bank, which includes most recently serving as vice president and director of branch operations for First Family Mortgage in Louisiana.
James Barlow, president of Home Federal Bank, said: “Mr. Barber’s extensive background and strong relationships in the mortgage industry make him a great addition to Home Federal Bank. The mortgage industry has received a lot of attention over the past year, and he has the right combination of experience necessary to ensure our customers’ needs are met with smart and responsible solutions for home ownership.”
Mr. Barber said: “I’m excited about having joined Home Federal Bank because the bank is in a strong capital position and well positioned to be an active originator of residential mortgages in the region and, at a very important time in evolution of the mortgage banking business, as an active seller of residential mortgage loans. Home Federal is strong, stable and has money to lend. And, because we are operated locally – our mortgage customers will be able to sit across the table from the same persons who make the important decisions and can make things happen quickly.”
