Vice President, Director of Marketing and Public Relations, Lake City Bank
Nathan R. Conley, Assistant Vice President and Small Business Officer, was awarded the 2015 President and CEO Commitment Award at the bank’s quarterly Officer Meeting last week.
Each year, Lake City Bank grants this award to an individual who has gone above and beyond in representing the bank, internally or externally. Conley was honored because of his exceptional work in developing and growing the bank’s small business lending function, where he works with retail and commercial relationship managers on small business loans. Under Conley’s management since 2012, the area has grown to three times its original size.
“Nate has been a true game changer for us,” said President and Chief Executive Officer David M. Findlay. “The growth in small business lending on his watch is significant, but far more important,
Nate has enabled us to offer responsive, personalized service to our small business customers in all of our markets.”
Conley is active outside of Lake City Bank as well. He works with Junior Achievement, United Way and the Kosciusko Leadership Academy. He is also a youth leader at his church and serves on the board of his homeowner’s association.
