United Community Bank names new state president

August 11, 2022

United Community Bank has named veteran banker and Williamson County resident John Wilson as its Tennessee state president. 

Wilson was formerly the Middle Tennessee president for United following the merger with Reliant Bank earlier this year. He was one of the first employees of Reliant Bank when it started in 2006. 

He steps into this role after his predecessor, DeVan Ard, passed away earlier this summer.

Wilson has more than 30 years of community and regional banking experience and is a well-known member of the Middle Tennessee banking community. He worked closely with Ard to grow Reliant Bank during their 16 years together.

“I am grateful to have this opportunity to lead this wonderful team. It’s a community that I know and love, just as DeVan did,” Wilson said. “I am honored to carry on the legacy of serving our customers and our employees and will work hard to do so.”
