Charlotte, NC — April Patterson joins HomeTrust Bank as an Assistant Vice President and Business Banking Manager for Northern Charlotte and Lake Norman market. She is responsible for business development, providing business banking and tailored financial solutions for business owners and their employees. She will also implement growth and client engagement plans that benefit the unique needs of HomeTrust clients in the area.
“I am thrilled to join the HomeTrust team and work with former partners, friends, and colleagues,” says Patterson. “Working for a community bank focused on doing the right thing for our clients is refreshing. HomeTrust is large enough to provide solutions for the most complex business needs, but small enough to get them done quickly. As a team, we understand that every client and business is different and that tailored solutions are needed to make their life easier while providing unmatched customer service.”
Patterson brings nearly two decades of banking experience to HomeTrust Bank. Prior experience includes serving as the Banking Center Manager, Small Business Banker at First Horizon in Cornelius, NC where she was responsible for business development, retention, banking center team performance, and brand awareness in the Lake Norman market. She also worked for Fidelity Bank as a Branch Manager.
“April is a fantastic addition to our business banking team,” says Latrella McElrath, Senior Vice President and Business Banking and Professional Banking Group Executive. “Her decades of banking experience paired with her unique knowledge of North Charlotte and Lake Norman market make her a huge asset. I look forward to working with her as we expand our team focused on helping local businesses grow and thrive.”
