State Bank Names Chief Credit Officer

State Bank and Trust said it has promoted David F. Black to chief credit officer, reporting to State Bank president Tom Wiley. For the past two years, Black has served as senior vice president of Finance responsible for State Bank’s management reporting and investor relations functions.

As CCO, Black will oversee all the functions of credit policy and administration for State Bank both in Metro Atlanta and in middle Georgia markets where State Bank has a presence.

“David Black brings unique skills that will help the people around him succeed as we continue to grow as one of the nation’s best-capitalized super-community banks. With this decision, we’re putting passion, intellectual capacity and a proven champion of the State Bank culture in the right seat,” Wiley said.

Black joined State Bank after serving as the director of corporate strategy at First Horizon National in Memphis, TN. Previously, Black served in various corporate development and finance leadership roles at Wachovia in Winston-Salem and Charlotte, NC, after starting his banking career with SunTrust in Atlanta.
