The Correspondent Channel starting up in Florence will be a new channel of production for Caliber. 

"It's exciting to see another company recognize the benefits of doing business here in South Carolina. We celebrate Caliber's Funding decision to create 100 new jobs in Florence and we look forward to seeing them grow here in the Palmetto State," said Gov. Nikki Haley.

The company will employ underwriters, audit analysts, data entry staff as well as client relations positions.

Caliber Funding has already hired over 35 employee's.  Career Specialist, Zachary Nickerson, who interacts with job seekers everyday, says big companies like Caliber Funding wating to expand to the Pee Dee area is great news.
