With relatives in banking and at the suggestion of his North Georgia College professors, a young Eddie Hoyle decided to forgo law school for the fulfillment of helping people meet their financial dreams through a career in banking. "Had I chosen a different path, I don't think I would have received any greater satisfaction than banking has provided me," said Hoyle, now Chief Banking Officer and Executive Vice President at Colony Bank, Fitzgerald. The chair of the GBA Credit Committee reflects on his very first job as a bank collections officer, growing up in a musical family and his lifelong love of the banjo, how networking at industry events has shaped his career and more in his GBA Member Profile.
