Gateway One Lending & Finance Opens Tampa, Florida, Service Center

Gateway One Lending & Finance, a subsidiary of TCF National Bank and an indirect subsidiary of TCF Financial Corporation, opened a new auto lending service center that will create up to 115 jobs and provide a $675,000 capital investment in Tampa, Florida.

“Gateway One has experienced tremendous growth during the past several years and the addition of this new facility in Tampa gives us the scale and efficiency needed to serve the needs of our national auto lending business,” said Brian MacInnis, CEO of Gateway One Lending & Finance. “We were drawn to Tampa’s impressive roster of leading businesses, strong footprint in the financial industry and its skilled financial services workforce – all of which are needed to support our business.”

Governor Rick Scott said, “Florida is on a mission to be the number one state in the nation for job creation and opportunity, and we are excited to announce Gateway One’s creation of 115 jobs in Tampa Bay. Our state’s job creators like Gateway One have created over 801,000 jobs in a little over four years, and we will keep working until we accomplish our goal of being the global destination for job creation.

This project was made possible through strong partnerships between Enterprise Florida, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Hillsborough County, and the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation.

“Gateway One Lending & Finance had a number of options of where to locate its new facility but ultimately chose Hillsborough County because of our exceptional labor market,” said Dr. Ronald Vaughn, Chair of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation and President of the University of Tampa. “Our academic institutions have collaborated over the years to create interdisciplinary curricula in response to feedback from local financial services employers. Those collective efforts are now paying off, providing those firms with highly skilled, diverse, and often multi-lingual graduates. We appreciate TCF’s and Gateway One’s investment in Hillsborough County and welcome them to our community.”
