April 14, 2019:  Congrats to Pat Russell on her March 29 retirement after 39 years of dedicated service to the bank.

Jan. 21, 2019:  Congratulations to Jerry Bates on his upcoming (2/1/19) retirement. Here's a portion of his official retirement announcement which was shared internally:

It’s hard to say good-bye to a great leader and business partner, but it makes it much easier knowing that the person is entering an exciting new phase in life – retirement! Jerry Bates, Manager of the GPS Regulatory Specialties COE, is retiring February 2019.  He began his  journey in 1985 with the Wachovia Finance group  in Winston-Salem.. A few years later, Jerry transferred to a Payroll Manager role leading the Payroll Tax and Accounting team, and he continued in his Payroll career for the next 30 years.

Jerry’s reputation as the consummate professional, providing complex and critical tax leadership that affects all of our team members located in 4,400 tax jurisdictions around the world, is well deserved. He has experienced many changes during his career of over 32 years.

1/7/19 Congratulations to Shirley Clements (Atlanta) on her Dec. 2018 retirement after 47 years of loyal service.

  Congratulations to Vickie Perrell on her 12/31/18 retirement.   Vickie joined the bank in 1973.
