An Illinois-based online lender and loan processing firm will open a West Knoxville call office and training center, state and local authorities announced.

Lending Solutions Inc., aka LSI, will create 265 jobs to open the center in The Atrium office building on Weisgarber Road. That's where the announcement was made, attended by local officials as well as Bob Rolfe, state development commissioner.
