Donald Poulton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Medallion Bank, stated, “The momentum of record earnings, loan originations, and historically low loan losses in 2021 continued into the first quarter of 2022. Our $18.8 million of net income was more than 36% higher than the prior year period. This was largely driven by asset growth in both our Recreation Lending and Home Improvement Lending segments.

With market rates now rising after years of stability, our team continues to execute our strategic plan with a primary focus of meeting the financing needs of our customers.”
