Bryant Bank is pleased to announce that Cullen Smith has joined the Tuscaloosa team as a Vice President, Commercial Banker.  Mike Mitchell has also been hired as a Senior Vice President and Senior Credit Officer for the Bank.

Since 1996, Cullen Smith has been prominent in the commercial banking community and continues as a top producing leader in the industry. His experience ranges from credit underwriting to the management of multiple extensive commercial loans.

“I am excited to work with Bryant Bank and to grow my relationships with the Tuscaloosa community,” said Smith.  “It’s rewarding to be a collaborative partner for the local businesses that provide for our community and to empower them to meet their goals.  That’s what community banking is all about.”

Mitchell has over 33 years of active and reserve duty and currently serves in the Alabama Army National Guard as a Brigadier General.  He has been in the financial industry for nearly 30 years and has worked for community banks throughout his tenure in a variety of lending and credit roles. 

“Mike is a highly qualified credit officer who has had a long and successful career, having served as another bank’s Chief Credit Officer, among many other roles in lending and credit,” said Claude Edwards, Bank President.

Bryant Bank has announced that Executive Vice President and Senior Mortgage Sales Manager, Michelle Robinson, has been promoted to President of Bryant Bank Mortgage.

“Michelle will be charged with growing this division and has already hit the ground running in establishing this growth,” said Claude Edwards, Bank President. “I am confident in Michelle’s ability to continue leading our mortgage team to future success and empowering homebuyers across the state.”

Robinson has been with Bryant Bank since 2011 and continues to excel in all areas of her work.  Prior to her promotion, Robinson was continuously one of the bank’s top producers.  In her new role, she will continue to foster relationships in the community as she works to also provide leadership and strategic direction and oversight to the full mortgage banking staff.

Carl Albright served as the previous Bryant Bank Mortgage President. Robinson will build upon the strong foundation that he established as Albright transitions to the role of commercial and private banking in the Birmingham market.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to lead the mortgage division and look forward to continued growth and success as we build our team to help Alabamians invest in their full potential,” said Robinson.
