One of Fishers’ newest employers is also one of its largest.

Delaware-based Navient Corp., which spun off from student-loan giant Sallie Mae on April 30, unveiled new signage this week atop its 478,000-square-foot building overlooking Interstate 69 south of 116th Street.

The loan-servicing company has more than 1,400 workers at 11100 USA Parkway (named for Sallie Mae predecessor USA Group) and another 900 or so at offices in Indianapolis and Muncie. The Fishers location opened 23 years ago.

"Our name is new, but our deep roots in the Indianapolis community are not," local Navient executive Jon Kroehler said in a prepared statement.

Navient said it provides customer service to 12 million student-loan customers and handles asset recovery for more than 1,500 clients in government and higher education.

The publicly traded company plans to fill about 100 open positions in Indiana by the end of this year, according to the news release distributed Monday.

"Navient makes a significant contribution to our state as an employer and member of our local community," Fishers Town Manager Scott Fadness said in the release. "We look forward to increased opportunities for residents to live, work and play in Fishers."

  • Maintenance
    Instead of a new sign, how about "Navient" maintain their building in Fishers and get rid of the rusted metal roof you can see from the road!
  • Fadness
    I wouldn't worry to much about that building they did meet with Fadness. What that means is Fadness probably offered to give them TIF money if they move down town. I mean its the state funding formula putting schools in debt not Fadness using TIF money to fund private buisness and it always works out well when government funds private buisness. The voxluxum deal has turned out to be a real winner.

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
