The new look comes about a month after Navient officially split from Sallie Mae, creating two completely separate entities.
"Our name is new but our deep roots in the Indianapolis community are not," said Jon Kroehler, senior vice president, Navient, and head of the Fishers center. "Welcome to the new name in town, representing our commitment to helping Americans navigate the path to financial success."
Navient provides customer service to assist 12 million customers to successfully repay their education loans. Navient also performs asset recovery services for more than 1,500 government and higher education clients.
Navient remains a major employer in Fishers, as it was 23 years ago when the building opened amid soybean fields in the rapidly growing area.
In three Indiana locations, Navient employs about 2,300 Hoosiers. The company will seek to fill more than 100 open positions by the end of the year.
Local officials and business leaders joined company executives for the reveal.
"Navient makes a significant contribution to our state as an employer and member of our local community," said Scott Fadness, Fishers town manager. "We look forward to increased opportunities for residents to live, work and play in Fishers."
