July 16, 2019 - Morris Bank today announced that Anna Swicord will become Bulloch County Market President. She will be responsible for directing the operations and strategy of Morris in Bulloch County. Swicord will succeed Brett Morgan who served as President of Morris Bank in Bulloch County and prior to that President/CEO of Farmers & Merchants Bank.
“Appointing Anna to take the reins in our Bulloch County market is the perfect piece to complete the merger puzzle,” states Spence Mullis, Morris Bank President/CEO. “It’s not every day that you have someone with her experience on an existing team, that can take something already great and make it even better. She’s had the opportunity over several years to learn invaluable lessons from a solid banker in Brett Morgan, who has earned the right to begin enjoying his retirement after a stellar banking career.”
No stranger to banking, Swicord will bring with her an impressive 43 years of experience to her new role. Her list of accomplishments ranges across all aspects of banking and leadership positions including, Banking Officer, Branch Manager, Commercial Lender/Vice President, Senior Vice President, and most recently Executive Vice President/Chief Lending Officer of Farmers & Merchants Bank.
“It has certainly been an exciting year so far and becoming a part of the Morris Bank family has been the number one highlight,” states Swicord. “To be chosen for this position is a tremendous honor and I’m thrilled to be a part of such a driven, customer-minded, and community-focused organization.”
Along with her extensive banking experience, Swicord has served on numerous community boards and councils including, Statesboro-Bulloch Chamber of Commerce (Chairman, 2001), Hospital Authority of Bulloch County (Chairman, 2006-2012), Ogeechee Technical Foundation (President, 2001), Coastal Area District Development Authority (Bulloch County Appointee), Statesboro Arts Council, Statesboro Mall Association, and the United Way.
