BRAD WHITAKER
First Bank, McComb | NMLS # 1532878

Market President Brad Whitaker is responsible for overseeing all of First Bank’s commercial loans in the McComb banking center, where he is also responsible for growing a deposit base and, most importantly, developing relationships with members of the community. “As Market President, I am honored to be the face of First Bank McComb,” Whitaker said. “This role allows me to be out in the community, or at virtual events, where I can get to know and support the people of Pike County.”

After graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies with a minor in marketing, Whitaker went to work in the golf world before joining the ranks at First Bank. He was a Class A PGA golf pro for 15 years, and for nine years he served as the head golf pro at Fernwood Country Club in McComb. From there, Whitaker became an insurance agent at Pike County Farm Bureau, where he developed many valuable relationships in his eight-year tenure. “My path to banking was certainly unconventional,” Whitaker said, “but in the end, it all makes sense. Being a golf pro requires patience, precision, and a heart for hospitality. All of those skills translate well into my Market President role at First Bank.”

In McComb, Whitaker hopes to continue lifting up the community he calls home. “McComb has such an incredible community, and I’m excited to learn more about our citizens’ financial goals and help them achieve them.” An avid hunter, family man, and member of Centenary Baptist Church, Whitaker enjoys spending time with his wife of 25 years, Melanie, and their two children, Caroline and Bradley.
