Additional highlights include the origination of $46.8 million in new loans during the first six months that resulted in loan portfolio growth of $25.7 million to $199.6 million. Total assets increased from $327 million to $341 million.
Ray said, “Encore Bank continues to be well capitalized and we are now seeing the benefits of our larger loan portfolio, low funding costs and expense management. Our primary focus the rest of the year is quality loan growth.”
During the second quarter, Encore Bank expanded its staff, management team and board of directors. The addition of Tom M. Taylor, CEO of Hole Montes Inc. to the Board of Directors further strengthens an already impressive list of local leaders involved with Encore Bank.
