Kemp is stepping down at the end of the year after a 45-year career in banking.

“David and Scott are ideal leaders for United in this area,” said United Community President for Community Banking Bill Gilbert in a press release. Johnson most recently served as president of Rome for United Community Bank and has more than 45 years of banking experience. Tucker was president of Bartow and Chattooga counties for United Community.

Both men have been with United Community Bank for more than 16 years.

“I am honored to continue serving our customers in Northwest Georgia through this expanded role at United Community Bank,” said Johnson in the press release. “We have a strong culture and a dedication to service that is unparalleled in this community, and I look forward to continuing that tradition.”

“Our team of bankers in Northwest Georgia is as talented as they come,” said Tucker. “I am proud to work with David to lead this team, and provide the financial services that are most needed by our customers. David and I care passionately about this team, our bank and these communities.”
