KeyWorth Bank entered the North Fulton and Gwinnett area market in 2007 with a team of seasoned commercial bankers
and business specialists. With a loan office recently opened in East Cobb, KeyWorth is poised for additional growth. “We feel that there are great opportunities in the Cobb market,” says President and CEO Jim Pope. KeyWorth focuses on the diverse banking needs of small- to mid-sized businesses, especially those in the medical community. The bank’s tagline, “The Experience Is Worth It,” speaks to both the banking knowledge and experience of their staff, as well as a positive customer service experience.
Ron King, Vice President Commercial Banking Officer
I grew up in Cobb County, and I am a second-generation banker in Cobb/North Atlanta. I enjoy working at KeyWorth because of the people I work with. We are a true community bank, and we are focused on live, work and play in the communities we’re in. I want small businesses to know that KeyWorth has money to lend, and we are here to work with clients to help them achieve their business goals and succeed. When I’m not working, my kids keep me busy. I also cycle and I love to play golf and fish when I get the opportunity.
Kit Carlson, Vice President Credit Analyst, RMA-CRC
I’m a native of East Cobb and I have been in banking for more than 20 years. All of the people who work at KeyWorth are wonderful. I like the way that we approach customers. We’re trying to do what’s in their best interest, rather than trying to sell them something. It’s nice to work in a place that wants to do what’s best for people rather than just what’s going to make a buck. I have two kids who are in middle school, so when I’m not working, I am a Girl Scout leader and treasurer for the PTA.
Chad Whittemore, Vice President Commercial Banking Officer
I have been a commercial banker in Cobb for about 11 years, and I live in Marietta. I value living in a good solid community. The culture of KeyWorth is what attracted me to the bank. We’re financially healthy—we have a lot of capital, a lot of liquidity and we are positioned to be successful. There’s always going to be a place for a community banker, and I love being in a position to help small and mid-sized businesses, and to see the community grow. For fun, I do a lot of fitness stuff, especially triathlons and adventure races, and I’m currently working with the Cobb Chamber on health and wellness initiatives.
