Bank Independent elevates Smith to development officer for three counties

SHEFFIELD – Bank Independent continues to promote staff members, the newest being Jennifer Smith who is now business development officer for Lawrence, Limestone and Morgan counties.

Earlier this week, Bank Independent also elevated Lynda Darby to business development officer for Lauderdale, Colbert and Franklin counties.

“We are dedicated to fulfilling our customers’ banking needs by cultivating meaningful partnerships,’’ said Rick Wardlaw, CEO of Bank Independent. “In her new role as Business Development Officer, Jennifer will represent our bank’s brand in the communities we serve. With her talent for forging strong bonds and her embodiment of our mission, vision, and values, she was the perfect choice to take on this vital new position.’’

In her new role, Smith will be responsible for generating long-term, sustainable core deposit growth by serving as a brand ambassador and nurturing new and potential deposit relationships within the communities of Lawrence, Limestone and Morgan counties.

Smith joined the bank in August 2018 as part of the Customer Experience team. She most recently served as Team Member Care Program Coordinator, developing, and managing programs like Sales-Manager-In-Training, internships, recognition, and more. With her background in customer service, program development, and human resources, Bank Independent said in a statement she is “well-prepared to serve in this new business development role.”

Smith holds a bachelor’s degree in small business management and human resources from the University of North Alabama.
