GBA Member Profile

Stephen Whittaker wants to make one thing very clear about the term bankers’ hours. “We are representatives of our banks and industry 24-7. I believe we serve our communities as much outside of normal banking hours as we do during them. But that’s OK when you consider the great amount of trust our communities place in us,” he says. Whittaker is a senior credit administrator at First National Bank of Decatur County, Bainbridge, and was the Graduate of Distinction for the 2016 class of the Georgia Banking School. Somewhere in his all-day-every-day work of banking he finds time to build custom fishing rods as a hobby. Find out more about Stephen in this week’s GBA member profile here >>>
