Member Profile

Oconee State Bank’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Jim McLemore, learned early on in his banking career that he’s best suited to using his accounting degree. “My first job in banking was as a management trainee. I worked on the teller line and then in the mortgage department. I wasn’t very good at either,” McLemore said. He found that what he is good at is taking complex/arcane financial topics and making them understandable and useful for just about everyone else in the bank. The member of GBA’s 2022-2023 Asset/Liability Management Committee shares the best piece of advice he got from a mentor as well as how proud he felt to be in banking during the pandemic when banks were meeting a very crucial need in their communities, his athletic hobbies and more in the latest GBA Member Profile.
