Anthony Young’s traditional banking career veered into mission-based lending after receiving the Chairman’s Club Award at Regions Bank. The shift in direction started when his wife posed a question: “What’s next?”
“Outside of banking, I didn’t know what I wanted to do, and I started searching my passions,” said Young, who grew up in Louisville, Mississippi.
In 2017, he took a leap of faith and a pay cut to join River City Capital, a community development financial institution in Memphis.
Young left his job as branch manager in Southaven, Mississippi, to become economic development director with River City. After 22 months, he moved to Epicenter, the entrepreneurship hub of the greater Memphis region, as director of capital programs.
That was the jumping-off point for him joining Southern Bancorp Community Partners as president in January 2022.
A finance major, Young graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Mississippi in Oxford. He is a past volunteer for Cub Scouts and youth soccer and served on the northern region council for Hope Credit Union in Jackson, Mississippi.
