When HomeTrust Bank’s Charlotte Market President Jeff Mylton thinks of ULI, one word comes to mind: achievement.
“When ULI is involved in a project,” he says, “good people come together to get good things done.”
In his 4 years as a ULI member, Jeff has participated in many collaborative projects that have allowed him to step outside the banking industry and work with an array of professionals he may not have otherwise had the chance to meet. In addition to the networking opportunities and relationships he has developed across the organization and in the community, he credits his involvement with ULI for deepening his appreciation of the challenges and opportunities that go into the kind of real estate investments his bank is often asked to fund. One of the more unusual projects he worked on with First Charter Bank was the conversion of a chemical plant into a residential subdivision.
Jeff says the most satisfying part of his job as HomeTrust’s first Charlotte-based Market President is “providing a means for others’ success.” This is a philosophy he has brought with him from his time at Fifth Third Bank, formerly First Charter Corp., where Jeff worked for more than 16 years in commercial banking.
Originally from Miami, Jeff earned a BA in Business Management and a Certificate in Commercial Banking from Florida International University. He has two grown children, a son who is a successful entrepreneur and a daughter who is a professional golfer. His wife owns a highly successful marketing company, with clients nationwide. When he’s not working, he can be found outdoors engaged in a variety of sports, ranging from mountain biking, motocross, golfing, boating, hiking, and watching all major sports. His favorite places to vacation range from a colder climate like Lucerne, Switzerland to the warmer temperatures on the beaches of Riviera Maya in Mexico.
Jeff serves as a member of the ULI Charlotte Advisory Board. In addition to his membership in ULI, Jeff is a CCIM and Leadership Charlotte member and has been involved with the nonprofit organizations such as Junior Achievement and Habitat for Humanity.
