“We are pleased to welcome Jon to the board,” said DABC Chairman Noah Covington. “Jon has a proven track record of giving back to community, and we look forward to him sharing his time and talents with the DABC as we work to grow industrial jobs and investment in Bryan County.”
Jon is a native of Richmond Hill. He graduated from Armstrong State University in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in economics. He has worked in the banking industry for 14 years and currently holds the position of coastal division president for Citizens Bank & Trust in Richmond Hill.
