Long-time CEO of CCB Community Bank will retire at the end of next month.

Southern National Corp., the parent company of CCB Community Bank, announced the retirement of Thomas E. Lane, who has been in the position for the past 38 years.

In a press release from Chairman John Vick, he said that under Lane’s leadership CCB Community Bank has grown from one office with $43 million in assets in 1985 to four offices with $520 million in assets in 2020. In addition to the original bank in Andalusia, which was founded in 1947, CCB has branches in Opp, Crestview, Fla., and Niceville, Fla.

CCB currently employs about 110 people in its four locations.

“I want to thank all the great employees and customers for your support over the last 38 years. I am proud of what we have accomplished and I know that our commitment to the communities we serve will continue under the new leadership,”  Lane said. 

Vick said Southern National thanks Mr. Lane for his leadership. A celebration to honor Mr. Lane will be held at a later date, after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

Southern National would also like to announce that Michael Andrews will become the new CEO of CCB Community Bank, effective July 1, 2020. Mr. Andrews has been with CCB for 20 years as executive vice president and loan administrator.
