President - Private Bank of Decatur
NMLS ID 938393
Judy Turner is President of Private Bank of Decatur. She is responsible for all Decatur market initiatives.
In 2015 Judy celebrated 50 years in banking in Metro Atlanta, having started with Citizens & Southern National
Bank in the Personnel Department. She worked in Auditing, became one of the first Personal Bankers when C&S started
that program, and became an officer of the bank in 1974. A year after C&S became NationsBank (1995), Judy had an opportunity
to go to work in the Decatur Office of Bank South. Three years later Bank South was purchased by NationsBank and several community
leaders felt a need for a community bank in Decatur. They looked to Judy to organize and lead Decatur First Bank, where she was
President and CEO. In November of 2011, Judy had the opportunity to join Private Bank of Buckhead to organize and open Private
Bank of Decatur.
Community involvement has always been important to Judy, who currently serves as President of the Decatur Book Festival,
Trustee of the DeKalb History Center, Treasurer of Seniors Helping Seniors and as a member of the Junior League of DeKalb Advisory
Board. She has served on the boards of both the Community Bankers Association and the Georgia Bankers Association, as well as
Leadership DeKalb, the Development Authority of DeKalb County (former Chair), and the DeKalb Medical Foundation.
Judy lives in Decatur with her husband, Roy; they have a daughter and twin grandchildren.
