USAmeriBank adding to staff

The Clearwater-based bank will hire eight for its mortgage operations.

CLEARWATER — USAmeriBank will hire at least eight new employees for its mortgage lending division by the end of the year, according to a release.

The Clearwater-based bank was the subject of the Business Review's most recent banking overview story (see “Ten-Digit Territory,” June 10) after reaching $1 billion in assets just four years after opening its doors.

Mauro Harto, who joined USAmeriBank in March as director of residential lending, will lead the firm's hiring efforts. Harto came to USAmeriBank from Superior Bank, which recently underwent an ownership change after the FDIC shut it down (see “Hold 'Em,” June 10).

“Our mortgage division is expanding at a time when there is plenty of opportunity in this area,” Harto says in a prepared statement.

Led by CEO Joe Chillura, USAmeriBank is now one of the largest banking institutions headquartered on the Gulf Coast, second only to Raymond James Bank in assets.
