Member Profile

Sam Drennen wasn’t looking for a job in community banking in 2004, but that’s what he found after a chance encounter with his friend Rhodes McLanahan in Washington, D.C., led to some consulting work with First American Bank & Trust. Drennen is now chief operating officer for the bank and he serves on the Leadership GBA Board of Directors. Learn more about Drennen’s career path, how his son recently put a unique perspective on some good career advice about remaining humble, a touching story of community involvement and his love of adventure in the latest GBA Member Profile.
