Branham Promoted to Business Service Lead
Farm Credit of the Virginias (FCV) announced that former Business Service Specialist, Brittany Branham, assumed the role of Business Service Lead at the Lexington branch office.
Branham joined FCV in 2019 after a career in the healthcare field. She worked as a Medical and Administrative Assistant for five years prior to her role with the Association. In 2021, she completed her Associate’s Degree in Business through Dabney S. Lancaster Community College. Branham plans to continue striving for excellence, and hopes to complete her Bachelor’s Degree in Business as well.
In her new role, she will serve as a resource of support and guidance for the Business Service Specialists (BSS), who are the first point of contact at Farm Credit's branch offices. The BSSs also provide ongoing support for marketing and sales initiatives. Branham will provide ongoing training, collaboration and mentorship across the BSS team and oversee the execution of learning and development plans.
Branham is looking forward to her new role and says, “I am excited for the opportunity to be able to help BSSs in their roles, as I know the many hats that one wears in that position.”
Joey Cornwell, Regional Sales and Lending Manager, says, “We are excited for Brittany and her new role with us. Since joining FCV, she has built strong relationships throughout the Association that will serve her well as she transitions to her new Business Service Lead position. I am looking forward to working with her on various upcoming projects.”
