            Longtime banker Wayne Dasher was appointed vice president in charge of The Claxton Bank's new loan production office in Glennville, according to an announcement by Ralph A. Dixon, president and chairman of the board.

            With more than 35 years of banking experience, Dasher previously served as vice president of Satilla Community Bank. He also worked 25 years for Glennville Bank & Trust including five years as president and CEO.

            "We are delighted to have Wayne on our staff," Dixon said. "He has a great knowledge of the Tattnall County market and I feel confident that he will be an asset to our bank as we look to provide

all types of financing for our many friends in the area."

            Dasher has been active in numerous civic and public service activities over the years. In March, he was elected chairman of the State Board of Corrections following an appointment to the Corrections Board by Gov. Sonny Perdue in 2004.

            In addition, Dasher is a member of the board of directors of Southeastern Technical Institute and chairman of the popular Glennville Sweet Onion Festival since 1993. He is also a member of the Glennville Downtown Development Authority and a member of the Rotary Club.

            Dasher, who serves as co-sponsor of the annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Barbeque, is a member and past treasurer of First Christian Church.

            "I am excited to be joining The Claxton Bank and I look forward to working with people in and around Tattnall County who are looking for competitive rates and flexible terms on business or personal loans," Dasher said. "The Claxton Bank is an excellent organization with a long history of service to people in our area."

            The new loan production office will be fully operational in early June at 314 Barnard St.
