Member Profile

Wes Smith, senior vice president and area executive for SouthState Bank in Smyrna, started his first job at the age of 13 keeping books for his local Little League. “You might not expect that to be very stressful, but parents would get really excited about whether little Bobby’s infield ‘hit’ was scored as a single or an error when the third baseman tripped over his own feet trying to field the ball. Learning how to take incomplete data, form an opinion and defend that position to others is a skill that I still use today,” he said. A member of the Georgia Banking School Board of Directors, Smith shares his views on the importance of face-to-face interactions and close interpersonal relationships in today’s increasingly technology-driven banking landscape as well as what got him into banking, what drives his involvement with the 60-year-old school, surprising hobbies and interests and more in the latest GBA Member Profile.
