The Business Development Officer is an outside face to face, relationship creation, cultivation, and retention position. Your sole objective is to locate and build relationship with key referral sources in related industries, primarily retail and commercial bankers, commercial real estate brokers and agents, attorneys, CPA’s and other professionals. You will be expected to continuously seek out and develop new and better sources of loan referrals that meet our lending criteria, and to see these people every day. This position will be ideal for individuals who love meeting and interacting with people but who do not enjoy working in depth on processing and closing the individual loans generated from your efforts. Once the referral relationship is cultivated and deals come in, you will not be expected to work the deal but rather to continue to build the relationship with the referral source.

For the A-player looking for something special and who can answer "yes" to all of the following questions, this is the opportunity for you.

  • Are you the kind of person who hates being in the office all the time but really loves being out in the field?
  • Do you truly enjoy developing relationships face to face, belly to belly, with those contacts that can bring your company the right type of business?
  • Do you have a knack for meeting people, quickly developing rapport, and getting them to want to do business with you?
  • Are you the classic “hunter” who likes to go out and stir up business but doesn’t enjoy all the details and numbers involved in putting the whole deal together?
  • Are you professional, results oriented and driven to succeed?
  • Do you work hard and smart simply for the sake of the fact that it is the right thing to do?
  • Are you willing to go out in the field every business day and make 5-10 or more face to face calls, and in fact enjoy doing so?
  • Do you want to be able to earn bonuses based directly on the success of your efforts?
  • Can you provide clear proof to us when asked of a track record of demonstrable success in prior positions of a similar nature?

If you answered "yes" to these questions, we want to meet you!


  • Identify appropriate referral sources and be able to understand how to prioritize them based on value to the company as well as the referral source.

  • Monitor progress on any loan referrals to keep the referring source informed of the progress and outcome.
  • Generate consistent high quality loan opportunities referred from your farm of sources.
