Justin Ladd Promoted to Senior Loan Officer, Jonesboro Branch
Farm Credit Midsouth Vice President, Jonesboro Branch Manager Eric Branscum is pleased to announce the promotion of Justin Ladd to Senior Loan Officer at the branch.
A native of Lake City, Arkansas, Ladd earned a bachelor’s degree in Finance with an Ag Business minor from Arkansas State University (ASU) in 2004. He built a career with the USDA facilitating home loans, construction loans, home repair loans and later, in public finance, before landing his “dream” job at Farm Credit Midsouth as a loan officer in mid-2018.
“Growing up around agriculture I have always loved everything about it,” Ladd says. “My heart has always been in ag, and I love working with Farm Credit customers. We really are invested in their farming operations and forging a partnership with them. To me, that’s what sets Farm Credit Midsouth apart. I am honored to be named Senior Loan Officer, and I’m excited about taking on more responsibility in my new role.”
“Justin is a great fit for this position,” Branscum says. “He brings an expansive knowledge base and a great track record to the role and is more than deserving.”
Justin and his wife, Amy, share three children, Jacob, Andy and Brynlee. The family resides in Brookland.
