 Atlanta, GA: BankSouth announces the promotion of David Godwin to Senior Vice President, Director of Enterprise Development.  This role will lead the company in fostering new and existing relationships with industry partners, collaborating with BankSouth’s various divisions to advance opportunities for shared growth and building on synergies to further the BankSouth enterprise.

“BankSouth and BankSouth Mortgage have experienced significant growth and corresponding increase in capabilities over the past several years.  During this period we have seen a tripling of the number of employees and a growing footprint with the addition of our Atlanta and Savannah branches. We have recognized the opportunity to add enterprise-wide employees to support our organic growth, prepare for future opportunities and to promote the synergies within our organization.” said Harold Reynolds, Chairman and CEO, BankSouth.

Godwin brings nearly 20 years of experience in the financial industry, primarily serving as a top performing Mortgage Loan Originator up until 2012 when he joined BankSouth Mortgage as the Vice President for the Alliance relationships.  In this role, Godwin focused on supporting the company’s Alliance Division, bringing on new builder and real estate company preferred relationships.  During this experience, he also served an integral role of joining bank and mortgage services through BankSouth’s construction lending program.

Relationships and community are among Godwin’s top priorities.  He is a resident of Carrollton, Georgia and is currently serving his second term on the Carrollton City Schools Board of Education.  He also served on the Planning and Finance committees for Carrollton First United Methodist Church. 

“As soon as David joined the BankSouth Mortgage team, he was focused on leveraging strengths within the enterprise for further cohesive advancement.  He has played an integral role in our franchise growth plans.  David was awarded our President’s Honor Award in 2014 which is given to the individual who best aligns with the enterprise’s goals and objectives.  He continues to demonstrate these qualities, and we are confident that his role as the Director of Enterprise Development will continue to contribute to and enhance our progress,” Kim Nelson, CEO, BankSouth Mortgage.

“David truly embodies our core values of being ready, responsive, and respectful. With our continued growth and attention to changing environments, we are so fortunate to have a resource like David to help us achieve the enterprise’s strategic plans.” said Reynolds.
