Guaranty Bank is pleased to announce that Kayla Jones and Jared Dickey recently joined the bank’s mortgage team as residential lenders.
Jones, who will office out of Guaranty Bank’s Farmers Park location in Springfield, began her banking career in 2005 at Focus Bank. She has more than a decade of retail banking experience, including almost two years as a banking center manager for Central Bank of the Ozarks, in addition to two years of experience as a mortgage loan officer, also with Central.
“Kayla brings a wealth of banking knowledge to Guaranty Bank,“ said Michael Frerking, director of residential lending. “She has years of experience in retail banking as a banking center manager and as a mortgage loan officer. Her unique background will help us build strong banking relationships with our borrowers.”
Dickey will join Guaranty Bank’s growing mortgage lending presence in the Joplin area, working from the bank’s 1429 E. 32nd St. location. He has more than 17 years of mortgage lending experience, including eight years as an assistant vice president and residential lender for Southwest Missouri Bank.
“Jared has nearly two decades of mortgage lending experience and a strong background in the Joplin community,” Frerking said. “He makes for a great addition to our Joplin area mortgage lending team as we continue to position the bank as a market leader in residential lending.”
Both Jones and Dickey are also active in their communities. Jones is active in The Network as well as planning committees for Harmony House in Springfield, while Dickey is the current board president of the Joplin area Big Brothers Big Sisters organization and a member of local Business Networking International and Young Professionals Network chapters.
