Farm Credit Announced Terry as Roanoke Loan Officer
Farm Credit of the Virginias (FCV) announced that previous Credit Analyst, Clayton Terry, was promoted to the role of Loan Officer at the Roanoke branch earlier this year. Between his credit experience, education and passion for agriculture, Terry is a great fit for the role and has proven to be a valuable resource to his customer-owners.
In his new position, Terry has hit the ground running and is excited to be more closely engaged with the greater Roanoke community, building relations with FCV customer-owners and prospects. He is dedicated to providing the best experience possible while helping his borrowers meet their financial needs and achieve their rural dreams.
Between growing up visiting his great-grandparent’s beef cattle operation and spending summers working and learning on a dairy farm in southwest Virginia, Terry is no stranger to agriculture. He has a Dairy Science degree from Virginia Tech with a minor in Agricultural and Applied Economics.
Terry initially joined the FCV team as a summer intern in 2018. After graduating from Virginia Tech in 2019, he then received a full-time offer as a Generalist and served in that position until 2020, when he moved into his most recent role of Credit Analyst.
“I have enjoyed getting involved in the Roanoke community, which I now call home, and learning how I can use my role to strengthen and support local agriculture,” Terry says. He notes that he is proud to serve as a loan officer with the Association, “FCV’s mission to serve and support farmers and rural community members by ensuring they have the financing they need to be successful is a major source of pride for me. I'm looking forward to providing my customer-owners the financial backing they need to reach their goals, whether that be securing their dream rural property to build a home and raise their family on or carrying out the ambitious task of feeding America and the world."
Vinson Snuffer, Regional Sales and Lending Manager, says, “We are pleased to have Clayton Terry join the lending team at the Roanoke office. Clay has an obvious passion for agriculture and this position allows him to utilize that passion to better serve rural communities in southwest Virginia.”
