Primis Bank Announces New Executive Vice President
Susan Williamson, Director of Regulatory Relations, has been promoted to EVP
RICHMOND, Va. — During their July meeting, the Primis Board of Directors voted to promote Susan (“Susie”) Williamson to Executive Vice President, Director of Regulatory Relations.
Williamson has been instrumental in supporting the bank’s growth since rejoining the Primis team in the summer of 2020. Her knowledge and expertise in regulatory risk management have been a guiding light for the rest of the company to follow.
“Susie’s promotion is more than well-deserved,” Dennis Zember, president and chief executive officer said. “She has been a huge asset to us in her time here at Primis. We have very aggressive growth goals and achieving those means we need to operate with the needs of our customers and investors at the forefront of all actions. Susie’s insight has influenced our entire team as we work towards our goals. Her work ethic and intensity are just two of the things I appreciate; I have no doubt that she will continue to impress and succeed going forward.”
Williamson has almost two decades of progressive banking, compliance and risk management experience. Having previously served as the compliance officer at Old Point National Bank, Sonabank, and Farmers Bank, Susie has consistently excelled in compliance management, consumer complaint management, and team leadership.
“I’m humbled and extremely grateful for the trust that our board members and executive team have in me,” Williamson said. “It has been apparent since rejoining the team in 2020 that this leadership team is ambitious, enterprising, and striving to build something better and beneficial for customers, investors and employees. Part of the Primis brand mantra says that we pride ourselves on doing things right. I’m thrilled to be part of this team and involved in “getting it right” as we offer exciting innovations and services that are in the best interests for all involved.”
Managing more than $3.4 billion in assets, Primis is the first bank to get it right. Primis brings the backing of a FDIC institution with the brains of a tech company—offering both security and ease; a solid foundation that’s future proof; and sophisticated offerings that are super simple to navigate. Primis breaks through all the fine print, wait times and red tape—bringing to market services that actually serve and solutions that solve real problems. Some say Primis is doing things different; Primis says we’re doing things right.
