Capital City Bank Announces Top Sales and Service Leaders of 2023

Capital City Bank – a longstanding financial institution with 128 years of community banking experience in Florida, Georgia and Alabama – recognized 31 of its best and brightest sales and service leaders at its 17th annual Star Summit event, held February 14-16 at the Perry Lane Hotel in Savannah, Georgia.

The Company proudly acknowledged four bankers that were the pinnacle of sales and service performance in 2023 as winners of the distinguished Star Summit signature awards. The Rain Maker award was presented to President of Troup and Chambers counties Karen Meadows; the Mountain Mover award was given to Tallahassee Client Experience Manager Scott Gerber; the Fire Starter went to Macon Retail Business Banker Joel Ginaldi; and the Ripple Effect was presented to Tallahassee Network Support Tech Tijuana Eberhardt.

The Rain Maker recognizes an associate who sets themselves apart by consistently producing extraordinary results – they drive revenue, build relationships and have a proven track record of closing the deal. The Mountain Mover recognizes one associate who consistently goes above and beyond to help clients, both internal and external. Never saying, “It’s not my job,” they move mountains for their clients and perform every task with a smile on their face. The Fire Starter is presented to an associate who sets every opportunity before them ablaze and achieved outstanding results. The Ripple Effect is given to the top referrer – the associate who is always on the lookout for opportunities to deepen client relationships. They expertly translate client needs clues and make qualified connections with the areas of the Bank that provide solutions.

Additionally, the Bank paid special tribute to two outstanding individuals. Tallahassee Retail Business Banker Kaila Hardee was honored with the prestigious 2023 Godfrey Smith Award, the highest individual accolade presented by Capital City Bank. This award recognizes individuals who embody the esteemed qualities of the late former President and CEO of Capital City Bank, Godfrey Smith: integrity, honor, and compassion. Keystone Heights Client Experience Manager Ginger Lee was the recipient of the 2023 Julian V. Smith Community Involvement Award. This prestigious accolade is reserved for a Capital City Associate who exemplifies a spirit of volunteerism and selflessly gives for the benefit of others.
