The South Carolina Banker’s Association named Citizens Building and Loan Executive Vice President Jennifer T. Jones Outstanding Young Banker of the Year.

Considered the highest honor presented in the South Carolina banking industry, the Outstanding Young Banker award has been given each year to one deserving SC banker since 1970. Former recipients of the award have proven to be among the most prominent and well respected banking leaders in the state.

“Looking back to past recipients, I am deeply honored to be a part of such a dynamic and distinguished group of bankers from all over the state. CBL’s Board of Directors, management team, employees and customers have been a major component of my personal and professional development. I am grateful for the opportunities and friendships that have enriched me in order to make this award a possibility.”

A lifelong Greer resident, Jones has over 17 years of local banking experience. She received her degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting from Presbyterian College. Jones most recently served as Chairman of the South Carolina Bankers Association’s Financial Literacy Division and is First Vice Chairman on the Board Of Directors for the Young Banker’s Division of the SCBA.

Jones is a graduate of the SCBA Bankers School, as well as, the Colorado School of Banking in Boulder, Colo.

Active in her community, she is on the Board of Trustees for Greer’s Partnership for Tomorrow. She is the Chairman for the School Improvement Council at Chandler Creek Elementary, is a Meals on Wheels Volunteer, and is on the Budget and Finance Committee for First Presbyterian Church in Greer.

“Community banking is one of my passions and it is with great joy I am able to serve the local area I have called ‘home’ since childhood,” said Jones.

“Jennifer has worked in many areas during her tenure at CBL and has always demonstrated exemplary leadership qualities and a dedication to both her industry and the community she serves,” CBL President and CEO, Tommy Johnson said. “She is motivated to improve CBL’s profitable service to Greer and, by extension, the wellbeing of our employees. This is a well-deserved honor.”
