“Jim is no doubt our Mortgage MVP for 2018,” said Stephen D. Shields, Senior Vice President/Chief Residential Lending Manager, “But, I’d also like to recognize Bob Morgan who had the highest production for our Mainland and Sebastian locations with more than $17 million, and Mary Cone who had the highest number of production units with 84.  Of course, without our support team, it would be difficult for these superstars to achieve so much, so quickly and with such a high level of customer satisfaction.  I’m proud to say that more than 99% of our customers who responded to our service survey said they would recommend Marine Bank to others.”
