John F. Hall, president and CEO of American Pride Bank in Macon, has been elected by his peers to serve as 2018-2019 Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Georgia Bankers Association.
“John has worked at a variety of banks that are reflective of the full scope of the types of banks that serve communities throughout Georgia,” said Joe Brannen, GBA president and CEO. “He’s committed to making sure that everyone understands just how important the banking industry is and how the Georgians who happen to be bankers make a difference in their hometowns every day. And, he’ll be a strong champion for the advocacy, education and services provided by the association as resources to the industry.”
Hall has more than 30 years of banking experience. He’s been at the helm of American Pride Bank since 2009. The bank has total assets of $171 million, loans of $133 million and deposits of $139 million. The bank employs 35 people and has four offices. Two of those are in Bibb County, one in Houston County and one in Oconee County serving the Athens area.
Hall spent the first 15 years of his career with growing super-regional banks in the Atlanta area before transitioning into community bank roles in the early 2000s.
In serving as the GBA Chairman-Elect during the past year, Hall has chaired the GBA Public Affairs Committee. He’s also served on the American Bankers Association Government Relations Council. The committee and council provide recommendations on regulatory and legislative policies to the associations’ boards of directors.
Active in the community as well, Hall is the Vice Chairman of Workforce Development and Education for the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce, Treasurer at Idle Hour Country Club, a member of the Macon Civic Club and a member of Turning Point at Mabel White Baptist Church.
