Sam McCard, president at South Georgia Banking Company in Tifton, got his first job with Calhoun Produce in Turner County working on the farms and in the produce business. “That job helped me understand what responsibility means and how others depend on you when you do certain jobs,” McCard said. McCard also says he works to instill the servant leader style he learned on that very first job within the culture at South Georgia Banking Company. A South Group representative on the GBA BankPAC Board of Directors, McCard said the two pieces of advice he received early on in his career that have stuck with him are, “Be kind to people,” and, “If you are going to do a job, do it right.” McCard discusses the challenge to be a visionary leader, his focus on the future and more in the latest GBA Member Profile.
