Member Profile

In the latest GBA Member Profile, we get to know Lee Lister, senior vice president Middle Georgia market executive at Great Oaks Bank in Eastman and member of GBA's Agriculture Committee. Lister's journey from a degree in food science to a rewarding career in community banking is both unconventional and inspiring. "Helping families, businesses and our communities achieve financial success is the best part of my job," he says. He shared two insights on time management and balancing life's responsibilities that offer valuable lessons. (Spoiler alert: they involve elephants and juggling.) Demonstrating a banker's commitment to his community, he shares a story about one of the bank's annual first responders lunches that got interesting. Discover more about Lister's unique career path, his tradition of running the Peachtree Road Race, and why his favorite TV show is "The West Wing" in his GBA Member Profile.
