First Internet plans 48 jobs in $4.3M Fishers office

First Internet Bancorp, parent of Indianapolis-based First Internet Bank of Indiana, plans to add 48 jobs as part of a $4.3 million expansion into Fishers, the company said Tuesday.

The investment will go toward purchasing and refurbishing a 49,700-square-foot facility at 11201 USA Parkway near Interstate 69 and 116th Street. First Internet acquired the building, which formerly housed the St. Vincent Health medical center, to expand its mortgage sales team.

The 48 jobs should create $3.3 million in new payroll, First Internet said, which equates to an average annual salary of $68,750.

“Much like First Internet Bank itself, the Fishers community is growing and thriving,” company Chairman and CEO David B. Becker said in a written statement. “With its many amenities, strong school system and community events, Fishers has positioned itself to be a place where people want to live and work.”

Becker founded First Internet Bank in 1999. The bank has no branches and 102 existing employees at its corporate headquarters, which will remain at 9200 Keystone Crossing.

First Internet is expected to use about 24,000 square feet of the new space and lease the additional space to other tenants. The company plans to close on the sale next month and start interior construction, which is expected to take from eight to 12 weeks, a company spokeswoman said.

First Internet announced in December that it is seeking to have its stock traded on the NASDAQ exchange. The company has filed with the SEC to make the move from the over-the-counter board.

First Internet shares were unchanged Tuesday morning, at $27.46 each.

  1. I always giggle when I read comments from people complaining that a market is "too saturated" with one thing or another. What does that even mean? If someone is able to open and sustain a new business, whether you think there is room enough for them or not, more power to them. Personally, I love visiting as many of the new local breweries as possible. You do realize that most of these establishments include a dining component and therefore are pretty similar to restaurants, right? When was the last time I heard someone say "You know, I think we have too many locally owned restaurants"? Um, never...

  2. It's good to hear that the festival is continuing to move forward beyond some of the narrow views that seemed to characterize the festival and that I and others had to deal with during our time there.

  3. Corner Bakery announced in March that it had signed agreements to open its first restaurants in Indianapolis by the end of the year. I have not heard anything since but will do some checking.

  4. "The project still is awaiting approval of a waiver filed with the Federal Aviation Administration that would authorize the use of the land for revenue-producing and non-aeronautical purposes." I wonder if the airport will still try to keep from paying taxes on these land tracts, even though they are designated as "non aeronatical?"

  5. How is this frivolous? All they are asking for is medical screenings to test the effects of their exposure. Sounds like the most reasonable lawsuit I've read about in a while. "may not have commited it" which is probably why they're suing to find out the truth. Otherwise they could just ask Walmart, were you negligent? No? OK, thanks for being honest.
