Hudson promoted to Regional President
Marty Sellars, FNBC Bank President and Chief Executive Officer, recently announced the promotion of Chad Hudson of Mountain Home to Regional President. Hudson will continue to serve as the bank’s Chief Lending Officer, and in the interim, as the Mountain Home market’s Community President.
“Chad is not only an exceptional community banker, but an incredible leader, coach and mentor to his team,” said Sellars. “He has played a large role in our organization’s recent growth and success, and as we continue to look toward the future, it really makes sense to have Chad leading in this capacity.”
Over the past 24 months, Hudson has played a key role in growing FNBC Bank’s asset size by 30 percent from $340 million to $440 million, as well as the recruitment and successful acquisition of two high-performing lending teams.
Hudson has been with FNBC Bank since June 2011 when he was hired as a commercial lender in the Mountain Home market. In 2014 he assumed the role of Chief Lending Officer for the bank, and in early 2015 he joined the bank’s Executive Committee as Executive Vice President. Prior to joining FNBC, he held executive leadership roles in other financial institutions.
“I have considered it a privilege to work alongside the entire FNBC team the past seven years, and I am honored to be entrusted with this new leadership role,” said Hudson. “FNBC provides an exceptional culture for all its employees, with opportunities for professional growth as community bankers and an exciting chance to be a part of a dynamic bank. I am looking forward to helping identify growth opportunities for FNBC, seeking out and building new relationships with the small business community and continuing to be a trusted partner for our existing customer base.”
Hudson is a graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Banking and holds a BS degree in Business and Finance from Southwest Missouri State University.
He and his wife, Anna, live in Mountain Home with his daughters Micah, 18, Mariah, 14, and step-son Jackson, 10.
