Grand Opening of The Money Source's Meriden Servicing Office

Jul 27 2015

Meriden Opening TMS CEO Darius Mirshahzadeh and President Ali Vafai with Meriden Mayor Manny Santos at our Grand Opening celebration!

We recently celebrated a huge day for our company, as we marked the grand opening of our loan servicing center in Meriden, CT. Our CEO Darius Mirshahzadeh and President Ali Vafai were on hand to celebrate the opening.

“This business is centered around people,” Mirshahzadeh said. “It’s our belief that if we treat our customers, team members and community with respect, dignity and pride, that everybody wins. We look forward to our future growth here in Meriden, and we’re honored to become a part of the fabric of your community.”

Seventy staff members have been hired, with an additional 150 to 200 expected to be hired in the next two years.

“This is a momentous day for The Money Source,” Mirshahzadeh said. “This has been eight months in the making, and we’ve seen a ton of hard work and effort go into transforming this space into what it’s going to become and what it is right now.”

Meriden Mayor Manny Santos praised The Money Source’s decision to add an office in Meriden. “Deciding to locate in Meriden is a wise decision. The central location cannot be beaten,” he said.

"The Meriden location will be a loan servicing center, while our other locations in New York and California are where loans are purchased," said Rick E. Smith, Executive Vice President at The Money Source’s servicing division.

Smith hopes to give customers a positive experience when they choose The Money Source and continue to grow the company.

Construction at the location began in November and was recently completed. Some features of the building include private offices for directors, and a lounge area for all employees, with table tennis and foosball.

“There’s absolutely no reason to have a bad experience with a mortgage servicer," Smith said. "It’s making sure people are trained, people are developed. One of my biggest goals is to develop a servicer that has a name behind it.”
