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. Really, taking someone managing the regulation of Alcohol and making himthe President of an IVY Tech regional campus. Does he have an education background?

  2. Jan, great rant. Now how about you review the report and offer rebuttal of the memo. This might be more conducive to civil discourse than a wild rant with no supporting facts. Perhaps some links to support your assertions would be helpful

  3. I've lived in Indianapolis my whole and been to the track 3 times. Once for a Brickyard, once last year on a practice day for Indy 500, and once when I was a high school student to pick up trash for community service. In the past 11 years, I would say while the IMS is a great venue, there are some upgrades that would show that it's changing with the times, just like the city is. First, take out the bleachers and put in individual seats. Kentucky Motor Speedway has individual seats and they look cool. Fix up the restrooms. Add wi-fi. Like others have suggested, look at bringing in concerts leading up to events. Don't just stick with the country music genre. Pop music would work well too I believe. This will attract more young celebrities to the Indy 500 like the kind that go to the Kentucky Derby. Work with Indy Go to increase the frequency of the bus route to the track during high end events. That way people have other options than worrying about where to park and paying for parking. Then after all of this, look at getting night lights. I think the aforementioned strategies are more necessary than night racing at this point in time.

  4. Talking about congestion ANYWHERE in Indianapolis is absolutely laughable. Sure you may have to wait in 5 minutes of traffic to travel down BR avenue during *peak* times. But that is absolutely nothing compared to actual big cities. Indy is way too suburban to have actual congestion problems. So please, never bring up "congestion" as an excuse to avoid development in Indianapolis. If anything, we could use a little more.

  5. Oh wait. Never mind.
