CBF is excited to announce that Ellison Powell has joined the team as a Vice President. Ellison will oversee the credit risk department, implementing loan policies and ensuring the quality of the bank’s loans. His 40 years of banking has given him a strong background in lending, financial analysis, underwriting skills and extensive managerial experience. His job may be a serious one, but Ellison's cheerful and good-natured attitude are a pleasant contrast.
Ellison was born in Cleveland, Ohio, but comes to us from a bank in Easley, South Carolina. He and his wife were happy to relocate to the Miami area and be near one of their two adult children. Excited to join the team, Ellison expressed, “I was attracted to Community Bank because of their commitment to customer service and local decision making.”
