Member Profile

When First National Bank in Bainbridge's Director of Retail and Marketing, Lorenda Smith, started working in a bank as a teller, her hiring manager assured her that she would meet wonderful people and her creativity would be an asset. "Looking back now, I find that his statement was so true. Having the opportunity to be mentored by three amazing women in my career, being allowed to use my creativity daily and travel the world has kept me in banking for the past 36 years." At the start of her career, dresses and pantyhose were required for women and there was no tolerance for casual dress, which has stuck with her through the years. "I still really have a hard time feeling comfortable on ‘casual Fridays,’" she said. The vice chair of the GBA Marketing Committee, she discusses the role GBA played in her career journey, her plans after retirement and the surprising announcement that her daughters were both having twins in her GBA Member Profile.
