AgGeorgia Farm Credit Announces Hiring of Commercial Loan Officer in LaFayette

AgGeorgia Farm Credit is pleased to announce the hiring of Ryan Hardin as a Commercial Loan Officer in the LaFayette branch.  A native of Cedar Bluff, AL, Mr. Hardin is a graduate of Auburn University with a Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness.  Ryan previously worked as a Farm Loan Officer with the Farm Service Agency and worked for Auburn’s Poultry Science Department throughout his college career. Growing up, his family was in the cattle business; at the age of 15 he obtained a youth loan from FSA and purchased cows of his own.  

Mr. Hardin started his career with AgGeorgia in 2016 as a credit analyst and was later promoted to a commercial loan officer.  In 2021, he left AgGeorgia to run his farm full time, which includes cattle, hay and four breeder hen houses.  After finding great employees to help to manage the operation, he rejoined the AgGeorgia team in November of 2022.  

He looks forward to using his agricultural and financial knowledge and experience to service the needs of residents of Catoosa, Dade and Walker Counties.
