Welcoming Lance Strong as Community Development Lender on the Central Ohio Mortgage Team

Columbus, OH (August 23, 2023) – Lance Strong has recently been added as a Community Development Lender on the Central Ohio mortgage team at First Commonwealth Bank. He joins First Commonwealth with nearly two decades of mortgage lending experience. 

“Lance has nearly 20 years of knowledge in assisting homebuyers in the mortgage process, including three years from the lens of a builder in the home construction industry,” offered Stan Foraker, Mortgage Banking Executive. “Given his experience and passion for helping members of every community in the home buying process, he will be a great addition to our team.”

In this role Lance will assist families and individuals in not just the financing of their home, but the preliminary work necessary to have a successful purchase. While Lance’s efforts will impact the entirety of First Commonwealth’s Ohio footprint, he will be based in Lewis Center and focus on the Columbus metropolitan area. Additionally, Lance will be involved in First Commonwealth’s Special Purpose Credit Purpose program, that was instituted in Central Ohio earlier this year. 

“I am committed to always doing the right thing for my mortgage customers and ensuring a smooth process,” Lance offered. “I am passionate about diversity and It is important to me that every person who wants help gets the attention and care that they deserve, a mission that I feel is also paramount to First Commonwealth Bank.”

Lance has a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Ohio University and resides in Reynoldsburg, Ohio. He is the membership secretary for the Bexley, Eastmoor, Berwick (B.E.B.) Realty Association, a member of the Midtown Area Real Estate Association (M.A.R.E.A.) and a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.
