Tim Perry, president and CEO of the Citizens Bank of Georgia in Cumming, started working at a marina gas dock on Lake Lanier when he was 16 to save up for his first car. When after two years, he still didn’t have enough saved for a decent vehicle, his father surprised him with the announcement that he would help Perry buy the car. “My father told me to always remember to work hard and good things will happen. I have found that to be so very true. Coincidentally, some of the ‘luckiest’ people I know are the hardest workers,” Perry said. The Group 9 representative on GBA’s Board of Directors discusses his career doing what he loves through banking, people who have influenced him over the years, involvement with the Kansas City Barbeque Society and more in this week's GBA Member Profile.
