Fintech Company Advance Financial Bringing Jobs to Lenoir City

Leading Fintech company, Advance Financial, announced the opening of two rural resource centers in Lenoir City and Sparta, Tenn., that will offer unparalleled customer service to online customers in numerous states.

Advance Financial opened its first two rural resource centers in 2018 in Lewisburg and Johnson City, Tenn. The Lenoir City and Sparta locations mark the company’s third and fourth rural resource centers. There are plans to have a total of eight centers throughout the state by mid-2019, creating up to 40 new jobs overall.

“Our resource centers have been crucial in helping Advance Financial establish stronger roots in rural communities,” said Tina Hodges, Advance Financial’s chief executive and chief experience officer. “They not only spur local job growth, they reinforce our company's commitment to the communities we serve. We're dedicated to growing and expanding across all of Tennessee because we share the same local values that serve as the bedrock of rural communities. It's these hardworking employees who help Advance Financial offer such an outstanding customer service experience.”
