GBA Member Profile

Heath Fountain got into banking through his early career as a CPA doing audits for banks. That eventually led to becoming a financial advisor at the bank, and now he’s president and CEO of Planters First Bank in Cordele. If that doesn’t pan out for him, maybe he can fall back on a handyman business. “I really like building things.

Fountain is also GBA’s Group 3 board member. Learn more about Fountain here >>>
