Peoples Bank President and CEO Dennis Ammann today announced that veteran banker Daniel E. McDill has joined the bank, and will serve as a Senior Vice President. In his new role, McDill will open and manage the bank’s Loan Production Office (LPO) in Richland, Mississippi.
A native of Jackson, McDill has called Rankin County home for most of his adult life, working primarily in Commercial Lending across the tri-county area. He is a graduate of Hinds Community College and Mississippi College, and has completed studies at both the National Commercial Lending School, held at the University of Oklahoma and the Graduate School of Banking, conducted at the University of Colorado.
McDill began his banking career in 1981 at Deposit Guaranty National Bank and served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Bank of the South, prior to its acquisition by Metropolitan BancGoup in 2008. Most recently he served as President of the Rankin Division of Metropolitan.
McDill is a graduate of Leadership Rankin and has a long history of community involvement having been a Sunday school teacher, MYF advisor and youth league coach and having previously served on the board of the MS Chapter of Future Farmers of America and the Leadership Rankin Board of Trustees. He is a former President of the Brandon Youth Association and the Rankin County Chamber of Commerce. McDill currently serves on the Advisory Board of Habitat for Humanity and the Community Advisory Counsel of Entergy Mississippi. He is also a strong supporter and active fundraiser for the Andrew Jackson Counsel of Boy Scouts of America. McDill attends First Baptist Church of Jackson, where he sings in the sanctuary choir, and he also enjoys golf, tennis and hunting. He is the proud father of two and grandfather of two.
“I am pleased to welcome someone of Danny’s experience to Peoples Bank,” Ammann said. “He has a long history of success as a lender and knows the Rankin County market exceptionally well. We look forward to introducing our brand of banking through the Richland LPO.”
