MountainOne is thrilled for Jason “Jay” Bianchi to join the residential lending team as AVP, Community Mortgage Lending Specialist. Reporting directly to the Head of Residential Lending, Bianchi will work out of the Berkshires, and serve as a member of the Bank’s Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) Committee.
Bianchi’s primary job responsibilities will include promoting the Bank’s overall CRA efforts through customer outreach, assisting potential borrowers with residential mortgages in underserved areas, enhancing community engagement through a series of financial literacy programs, and partnering with federal, state, and local affordable housing organizations on down-payment-assistance programs.
Peter Radigan, SVP, Residential and Consumer Lending Officer, commented, “we are excited to have Jay join MountainOne. We are eager to grow our lending team in the Berkshires to meet the credit needs of our community.”
Bianchi holds a degree in Business Administration from Berkshire Community College and brings over 15 years of banking experience to MountainOne Bank. Previously, he worked for NBT Bank – in both New York and New England – and Greylock Federal Credit Union in Berkshire County. In addition, he brings a CRA-related background and extensive experience in residential lending, community engagement, and financial counseling.
Bianchi has a robust history of volunteerism, with his efforts focused on mental health awareness and advocacy, suicide prevention, animal welfare, environmental causes, and youth sports. In his free time, you can find him digging in the garden, wandering in the woods, playing in the snow and, in general, letting the music move him. He resides in Pittsfield, MA with his family.
