One thing our customers say they love about SouthEast Bank is that our employees are consistently helpful and professional. We appreciate their ongoing drive, as well as the hardworking branch leaders who encourage their teams to go above and beyond.
Athens branch supervisor Nancy Hayes is one such leader, bringing 30 years of banking experience to the team. Thanks to her outstanding attitude and work ethic, Hayes says she has some customers who have stayed with her for her entire Athens banking career.
“I truly enjoy everyday interactions with my customers. I still have some customers that started banking with me 27 years ago, when I first moved to Athens!” Hayes said.
