American Founders adds to mortgage services

American Founders Bank announced this week that it and former Lexington Investment Mortgage Co. employees have created a unit called AFB Mortgage.

American Founders has offered mortgage services, but "bringing Scott (Mayes) and his team on board ... allows us to better serve our customers," AFB chief executive John T. Taylor said in a statement.

The group will work out of AFB's seven branches in Lexington, Louisville and Shelbyville.
