Independent Banker recognizes Bobbitt with new award
Independent Banker, the flagship publication of Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA), has named David V. Bobbitt as one of its 40 Under 40: Emerging Community Bank Leaders. The first-annual, nomination-based award recognizes up-and-coming community bankers who demonstrate exceptional potential in leadership, innovation and community work.
Bobbitt was responsible for the overhaul of Community 1st Bank’s social media platforms and website, making mobile banking attractive to customers of all ages. He is part of the Millennial Committee, a group of younger employees that shares different perspectives with management. Bobbitt is also part of a team that led loan growth for the bank’s newest branch, which fully absorbed its expansion expense and added to profitability within one year. Outside of work, Bobbitt is part of the Coeur Group of professionals, which undertakes projects like building lockers at local elementary schools and stocking them with supplies for at-risk kids.
