First Community in Lexington, S.C., has added a veteran banker to its board.
The $1.5 billion-asset company said in a press release Thursday that it had recruited Jan Hollar to become one of its directors.
Hollar recently served as interim CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.
She has 40 years of experience in banking, most recently serving as CEO of HCSB Financial and unit Horry County State Bank. Under her leadership, the company was freed from a preexisting regulatory order, then sold to United Community Banks in Blairsville, Ga.
Before that, she was chief financial officer at Yadkin Financial in Statesville, N.C.
“The board is extremely pleased to have Jan joining us,” Jimmy Chao, First Community’s chairman, said in the release. “Her extensive knowledge and diverse background make her a wonderful addition, and I believe she will serve the company, our customers, our employees and our shareholders very well.”
