Market President

Susan joined the BankSouth team in March of 2023 and has hit the ground running ever since. She has lived and worked in the Watkinsville and Athens banking community for over 25 years. Over this time, she has helped her customers plan, develop, and execute their plans to reach their full potential.

As Market President, Susan leads and coaches her team of bankers and lenders to provide the banking products that cater to our customer’s and community’s needs.

Before Susan joined the BankSouth family, she held several senior commercial banking and lending positions at both national and local banks located in the Athens/Watkinsville area. Susan is also a proud bulldog as she is a graduate of the University of Georgia.

In addition to her work, Susan is a very active member of her community. A frequent guest lecturer at UGA, she is on the board of the Athens Technical College Foundation and Housing & Demographic Research Center, University of Georgia. A fun fact about Susan is that she participated in Dancing with the Athens Stars to benefit Project Safe.

The next time you’re in the area, stop by and see Susan and the rest of the Watkinsville branch team!
