Refinancing firm iLending recently announced that Jason Oswald has been named director of sales at the company’s office in Columbia, S.C.

In this role, Oswald will be responsible for all sales functions for the company’s growing office in South Carolina’s state capital.

According to a news release, the facility began operations last September and currently employs 50 team members, with many to be added by year’s end and into 2023.

“The robust growth iLending has experienced this past year is the result of the combined efforts of our teams in Denver, Austin, and now Columbia,” iLending chief executive officer Tom Holgate said in the news release. “We are extremely fortunate to have Jason’s wealth of sales and operations experience to guide and strengthen our team in Columbia.

“We’re delighted with the progress we’ve made in South Carolina in such a short amount of time. Jason will deliver the leadership that will anchor iLending’s continued role as the innovator in auto refinance,” Holgate continued.

Prior to joining iLending, Oswald was with Global Lending Services as its Eastern region director of sales where he led sales, operations and training for five years. He also spent more than three years as regional sales manager and national sales trainer at American Credit Acceptance in South Carolina

“I love working with a company that’s looking to challenge the norm and change the way an industry looks and thinks,” Oswald said. “This is an incredibly passionate group of individuals, from the executive team to the loan consultants and staff.

“iLending’s deep commitment to help customers improve their financial outlook is what drew me to leading the future growth of the Columbia refinance center. I’m grateful for the opportunity,” he went on to say.
