Axiom Bank hired Jennifer Waddell as vice president, area manager in Orlando and promoted Dwayne Haugabrook to vice president, area manager in Tampa. Both will oversee day-to-day operations and sales at each branch in their region.

Waddell has nearly two decades of banking experience, most recently working as an area financial manager at the State Office of Financial Regulations in Orlando, where she evaluated state chartered financial institutions to make sure they were compliant.

Haugabrook has been with Axiom Bank for a decade, providing leadership, developing a customer-centric culture and cultivating robust community relationships with small business owners.

“Jennifer and Dwayne’s backgrounds, industry experience and institutional knowledge will allow them to actively lead Axiom Bank’s retail division through customer outreach and engagement,” said Urjit Patel, executive vice president, Consumer Banking at Axiom Bank.
