Sometimes career paths take unexpected turns. That was the case soon after college for Chris McCard. “I actually sort of stumbled into a career in banking. After college I took a job in the real estate and appraisal field, and a year later I was offered a position with a local bank, which I accepted. The bank allowed me to continue pursuing my state appraisal certification while learning the different areas of banking as a management/lender trainee,” says McCard. He's now in his 26th year as a banker, serving as city president for South Georgia Banking Company in Ashburn. He also is chair of the GBA Agriculture Committee. Learn what McCard's favorite part of the day is at the bank and what he considers most rewarding about his job in this week's GBA member profile >>>
