Citizens Bank & Trust’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Weymon Snuggs, was introduced as the chairman of the board of directors for the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce at their annual meeting on January 24th.
His upcoming Chamber service will be another milestone in addition to his previous 20 years of service to the Lakeland community that he loves. He came out of retirement in 2008 to continue working in his community as he joined the Citizens Bank & Trust team. Snuggs and Citizens are a good fit because top management, from CEO Greg Littleton down, share his civic-mindedness. “I’m very appreciative of him (Littleton) because he not only supports but encourages our involvement in the community,” Snuggs said. “It’s one of our core values.”
As Chamber chairman, Snuggs plans to bring his energy and apply forward-thinking leadership to several projects during his one-year term. He would like to see the Chamber’s role strengthen in workforce development for both business owners and employees. Also, Snuggs previously led the groundwork for a new $4 million entrepreneurial center in 2016 and looks forward to continuing the project as Chamber chairman.
“Weymon is kind of a unique individual – he’s a banker who can think strategically,” Outgoing chairwoman Janice Jones said. “He’s good with numbers, but he’s also a very forward thinker.”
We are excited to see all that he will accomplish in this position.
