Since its inception in 1996, Lendmark has experienced significant growth by following its original mission of meeting the personal lending needs of clients who cannot be served by traditional banks and their respective products. Today, with 320 branches in 20 states throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, Lendmark continues to expand as the financial services organization of choice for its customers and retail business partners by providing superior, consistent, and reliable services with every transaction.
Lendmark Financial Services was organized in 1996 as a subsidiary of First Liberty Bank of Macon, GA. In the summer of 2000, First Liberty Bank and its subsidiaries (including Lendmark) were acquired by Branch Banking and Trust Company (BB&T) of Winston-Salem, NC. Most recently, Lendmark was sold by BB&T in the fall of 2013 to a private equity firm in New York, NY.
