Member Profile

Rick Basinger, president and CEO of Northeast Georgia Bank in Lavonia, used to wake up early with his grandfather in Washington, GA, to help out at his Amoco service station, which was a local hangout. “At that age I called it work, but I was probably more in the way,” Basinger said. “What I took from there was the ability to greet people, give a solid handshake and communicate.” After learning the value of respect and service to others, he later found himself drawn to a career in banking. An At Large member on GBA’s Board of Directors, Basinger discusses his time as an Air Force weapons mechanic, plans to share his expertise on GBA’s Board and growing together with his wife and children and more in his GBA Member Profile.
