He joined our team as Chief Operating Officer in 2012 when our bottom quartile position casted a dreary light on the future. As a result, Harton overhauled operations and developed a new plan for growth while actively transitioning to the role of CEO.

Years later, Harton has built strong relationships across the board and is highly respected as our leader. The culture he has cultivated has completely transformed our company’s outlook on the future and landed us a spot on American Banker’s Best Banks to Work For list for the third consecutive year.
