Andrew Williams recently attended the 2021 on-campus session of the Georgia Banking School as a first-year student. Established in 1961, the Georgia Banking School is a three-year specialized school run by the Georgia Bankers Association.

During the course of the three-year program, participants complete an annual one-week residence session at the University of Georgia in Athens as well as home study problems between sessions. The school provides a well-balanced curriculum featuring UGA faculty members, veteran bankers and other industry experts and specialists.

Williams serves as Senior Vice President, Director of Corporate Strategy, for River City Bank. He works directly with executive management and the Board of Directors to lead the design of strategy across various high-value business projects, encompassing a broad range of responsibilities including corporate strategy, portfolio strategy, target market, competitive assessments, and future growth opportunities.
