AgGeorgia Announces Hire of Stephanie Jackson as Regional Lending Manager

AgGeorgia Farm Credit is pleased to announce the addition of Stephanie Jackson as Regional Lending Manager. In this role, Stephanie will supervise, train and support Loan Officers in AgGeorgia’s Dublin, Perry, Sandersville, and Waynesboro Branches, which collectively serve 25 counties.

Mrs. Jackson holds a bachelor’s degree in business and marketing and is no stranger to the farm or agricultural lending. “As a farmer’s daughter, agriculture is very important to me,” said Stephanie. “I grew up on a cattle and row crop farm in Telfair County and learned the value of hard work and an appreciation for agriculture.” Mrs. Jackson also worked for USDA Farm Service Agency for over 15 years and held multiple positions over her tenure, serving the longest in the position of Farm Loan Manager for 25 counties.

Mrs. Jackson fills the position formerly held by Melissa Redd, who was recently promoted to Director of Loan Operations. “I'm excited about adding Stephanie to our Regional Lending Manager team,” said Nick Hartley, Chief Lending Officer for AgGeorgia. “I've known Stephanie for over 10 years and I’ve seen her develop as a leader in agricultural finance. Her leadership will provide continuity of the excellent service members have come to expect under Melissa Redd and will allow Ms. Redd the capacity to focus on her new leadership role.”  

Mrs. Jackson resides in Perry with her husband, Ron, and daughter Presley. Stephanie looks forward to utilizing her agricultural background, networks, and finance experience to meet the borrowing needs of the farmers and rural land owners in her region.
