South Georgia Banking Company’s Neil Joiner to Retire after 35 Years of Service to Dooly County

December 31st will mark the end of Neil Joiner’s dedicated service to the banking industry of Dooly County. Joiner’s retirement comes after 35 years of banking; first as a loan officer and president for Bank of Dooly and eventually as City President for South Georgia Banking Company’s Vienna branch.



A native of Dooly County, Joiner graduated from Unadilla High School in 1970 and went on to pursue a degree in Business Management from Valdosta State University. He was a graduate of Georgia Banking School and received another degree from the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University.



Though his career in banking kept Joiner busy, he has also been an active member of the community. He served as a board member for the Dooly County Chamber of Commerce for over 30 years, and has been a long time member and serves as current chairman for several local development authorities including: Crisp-Dooly Joint Development Authority, Dooly County Industrial Development Authority, Vienna Development Authority and Vienna Downtown Development Authority.



Joiner has served in various positions with the Georgia Bankers Association (GBA) and the Community Bankers Association of Georgia (CBA), including several terms as Director of CBA.



Neil and his wife, Jane, have been married since 1974 and had triplets in 1978: Erin, Seth and Carrie. They now have four grandchildren: Abby, Melanie, Megan and Walt. The Joiner family is active in Vienna First Baptist Church where Neil currently serves as deacon, church pianist and Sunday school teacher.



Neil’s hobbies include writing, music and fishing. He is publishing his first book this year, an illustrated patriotic poem entitled, “What America Is” - which was inspired by his triplets who were five years old when he wrote the poem.



Joiner will be missed as both a hardworking and vibrant member of the South Georgia Banking Company family and the Dooly banking industry as a whole. SGBC will be holding a retirement reception in Joiner’s honor on Friday, December 11th from 3pm to 5pm at their Vienna location, 210 South 3rd Street. All are welcomed. Come help us celebrate Neil Joiner who believes that “George Bailey continues to provide the best example of what a banker should be.”

South Georgia Banking Company recently elected Bill Reinhardt to its Board of Directors. Bill, a Tift County native, received a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 1987 from the University of Georgia, followed by a Juris Doctor in 1990, also from UGA. After law school, he worked in private law practice at Reinhardt, Whitley, Summerlin & Pittman until 2006 when he was elected as one of two Superior Court judges for the Tifton Judicial Circuit, which includes Irwin, Tift, Turner and Worth counties. Currently, he serves as Chief Judge of the Superior Courts for the Tifton Judicial Circuit.

“We are very pleased that Bill is joining our board of directors,” said Pait Willis, chairman of the board. “The Reinhardt family has been a part of our bank for many years; Bob Reinhardt, Bill’s father, was one of the banks founding investors.”

Reinhardt, an active community member, has served on the boards of the Tifton-Tift County Chamber and the YMCA, along with serving as the president of the local American Heart Association and the Board of Trustees for First United Methodist Church and Leadership Georgia. He is also committed to professional organizations, having served as the president of Tifton Bar Association, a member of the Board of Directors of UGA Alumni Association and many committees with the State Bar of Georgia and Council of Superior Court Judges.

“The availability of credit is essential for thriving communities; job creation doesn't happen without it,” said Reinhardt. “A strong local banking community is
essential for Tifton to continue providing quality professional, educational and job growth opportunities for its citizens. I love living in Tifton and I am proud of my association with South Georgia Banking Company.”

A member of First United Methodist Church, he and his wife Lisa have three children, Will, Charlie and Georgia.
