Judy has been in banking in Metro Atlanta for over 45 years, 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 its Personal Banker program, and became an

South. Three years later Bank South was purchased by NationsBank and several community leaders felt a need for a community bank in Decatur.

to join Private Bank of Buckhead to organize and open Private Bank of Decatur.
