Get to know me

As a First Citizens commercial banker, it’s important to invest in understanding your business, strategies and key objectives. An established process and skilled team of specialists help me tailor solutions to fit you and your organization. Clients appreciate our trusted partnership in planning for long-term success.

I am proud to be one of the longest tenured bankers in Union County as I have served this community since First Citizens entered this market in 1990. The majority of my banking career has been devoted to Commercial Banking. The diversification of this market makes Union County an exciting place to work and live.

My spouse, Fonda and I have been married for 40 years and are the proud parents of two adult age children and have two grandchildren. I am a native of Anson County and have resided in the Parkwood community since 1987. I am avid sports fan and enjoy playing golf, traveling, and spending time with my grandchildren.
