Meridian Bank has hired a team of more than 70 mortgage professionals based in Maryland and led by David Fitzell, Senior Vice President and Director of Residential Lending, and Jeffrey Albaugh, Assistant Director of Mortgage Banking, both of whom are leaders in the local mortgage lending community.

Fitzell and Albaugh’s seasoned team will operate out of six Meridian offices in Maryland – in Towson, Columbia, White Marsh, Annapolis, Rockville, and Parkville – with plans for a seventh location in downtown Baltimore. Their team has consistently been recognized as a top mortgage lender in the region, most recently being named Baltimore’s Best Mortgage Team by The Maryland Daily Record.

“Our group’s experience is second to none, and we look forward to continuing our tradition of being Baltimore’s Best Mortgage Team by providing Meridian’s great products and rates to the community,” said Albaugh.

Fitzell and Albaugh chose to join the Malvern-based Meridian for its emphasis on best-in-class customer service, commitment to cutting-edge technology, and veteran leadership. In their new roles at Meridian, Fitzell and Albaugh’s personnel will lead the bank’s strategic expansion into Maryland and Washington, D.C.

“I’m thrilled to have David and Jeffrey’s experienced and highly-respected mortgage lending team representing Meridian and our core values, and pioneering our strategic expansion into the Greater Baltimore and Washington, D.C. markets,” said Chris Annas, Chairman and CEO of Meridian Bank.
