Georgia Primary Bank was a proud sponsor of the Taste of Buckhead, where a portion of the proceeds benefited The Giving Kitchen. The Giving Kitchen provides emergency assistance grants for Atlanta area restaurant workers facing an unanticipated hardship.
BBA members had a great time Saturday, September 10th volunteering at Open Hand Atlanta! Members drove fresh prepared and packaged meals to people with disabilities or serious illness in the metro Atlanta. Included is our own David Coxon and his wife Sandy.
Senior Vice President and Deposit Operations
It is often said that a strong operations leader is the glue that holds a bank together. Connie Cothran is no exception to this rule. Connie has been with Georgia Primary Bank since August 2014. In addition to her role as Senior Vice President of Deposit Operations, Connie has fulfilled the roles of Treasury Services, Retail Online Banking Support, IT and Security. Connie began her career as a teller before advancing to a branch management position at First Cherokee State Bank. While at First Cherokee State Bank, Connie became an expert on automated clearing house and is certified as an Accredited ACH Professional. Connie has also worked at Atlanta Business Bank, Brookhaven Bank and Georgia Commerce Bank. Connie strongly believes up-to-date-operating systems and highly trained staff are the backbone of a strong client-oriented bank.
Connie said, "If you can't deliver on the operating side, you will lose client trust in a hurry. Once lost, confidence is very difficult to regain."
"Delivering on the client service side has to be a core value of any successful bank. Fortunately we have someone of Connie's caliber who can deliver the excellent service our clients have come to expect," said David Coxon, President and CEO.
Connie lives in Woodstock, and has two children and two grandchildren. When she is not working, Connie enjoys camping with family and riding All Terrain Vehicles.
