Veteran Rome banker Rhonda Wallace will formally join the team at Greater Community Bank as vice president of the company on Monday. Wallace tendered her resignation at Synovus Bank in Rome this past Monday morning.

“It was just the right time,” she said. “I love being able to give back to the community and I’ll be able to be even more involved working in a great local bank.”

In addition to her banking responsibilities, Wallace has been active in many roles across the community. She has served on the Floyd County Commission for the past eight years and was chair of the commission in 2017 and 2018.

When she formally joins the Greater Community team she will be responsible for the continued growth of the community bank’s professional and commercial banking efforts.

“There is always going to be a place for a good local bank and I want to be a part of Greater Community becoming an even greater community bank,” Wallace said. “We want to be even more connected to the community.”

Wallace is a graduate of the Leadership Rome Program, she currently serves as treasurer of the Children’s Open Door Home, member and past president of the Rome Exchange Club, member of the Coosa Valley Fair board, member of Floyd Healthcare Resource and Management boards and past chair of the Adult and Student Leadership Rome programs.

“Rhonda is a strong leader with extensive knowledge of not only our vibrant Floyd County market but the evolving needs of today’s professional leaders,” Greater Community Bank’s President and CEO David J. Lance said in a press release. “With her high level of energy and motivation, as well as depth of experience, we could not be more proud to welcome her to the Greater Community team.”
