Wallis has been a community leader and long-term owner of a small business. With United’s interest in small business and commercial banking, Wallis brings a valuable perspective to the Board. His varied experience in a number of community boards, as well as his service on the United Community Bank — Rome community bank board, gives the Board a much-needed focus on the needs of our mid-size banking communities and the business owners within those communities. For these reasons, as well as his experience with statewide commerce, the Board believes he is well suited to serve.
