SHEFFIELD – Bank Independent continues to expand its workforce with the announcement of a new position for the regional, community-led business.

Blake Hudson will transition into the newly created role of recruitment coordinator for the bank’s human resources team. Hudson will report to Human Resources Manager Justin Low and lead recruitment efforts to support the bank’s vision as the employer of choice in the communities it serves.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Blake into this integral recruitment role,” Bank Independent CEO Rick Wardlaw said. “His skills and experience make him well-equipped to build out our recruitment capabilities and ensure we have the very best talent supporting Bank Independent’s growth and success.”

In his new role, Hudson will oversee internal recruitment and placement initiatives to match skilled candidates with open roles who meet the bank’s business needs.

Hudson joined Bank Independent in August 2022 as professional development coordinator, bringing more than five years of campus outreach experience and an extensive sales background. He holds a degree in mass communications from Berry College and professional and personal development certifications.
