Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

October 10, 2018 - United Community Bank is pleased to announce Dixon Woodward has been promoted to State President for South Carolina and Coastal Georgia. Woodward has nearly two decades of banking experience, much of it in the Coastal Carolinas region. He joined United Community Bank in 2015 and as Regional President for South Carolina, has been a significant factor in the bank’s success in the state.  Over the past three years, the bank has expanded into three new South Carolina markets: Greenville, Charleston and Myrtle Beach.

“Dixon earned this position due to his outstanding performance on behalf of the bank coupled with his strategic vision for the bank’s long-term success in this region,” said Rich Bradshaw, President, Commercial & Community Banking. “We look forward to seeing the positive impact of his leadership throughout our South Carolina and Coastal Georgia markets.” 

“We take considerable pride in our company’s emphasis on local decision-making, and Dixon’s new role will continue to support this strategy and allow us to best serve our banking customers,” added Lynn Harton, CEO of United Community Banks, Inc.

This new position is part of a new structure put in place by the bank to further strengthen its local bank operations. Prior to joining United in 2015, Woodward served as Market President – Coastal Carolinas for a large national bank. Woodward spent the early years of his career working in multiple positions for Carolina First, including a stint as Market President – South Coast. In 2013, Woodward was recognized by the Charleston Regional Business Journal as one of the top “40 Under 40.”

“I am honored to take on this additional responsibility with this unique company,” said Woodward. “The people and culture of United Community Bank are truly something special, and I am genuinely excited to be a part of the continued growth and momentum the bank has seen over the past several years.”  

Woodward is deeply involved in the Charleston community and serves on the Board of Directors for the South Carolina Arts Commission Foundation, as well as the South Carolina Aquarium. He is a former board member of College of Charleston Foundation along with the Charleston Regional Development Alliance.  He was also previously involved with the American Red Cross Clara Barton Society, the American Heart Association Heart Ball, the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce and the South Carolina Young Bankers Association.

Woodward is a graduate of the University of South Carolina, the South Carolina Bankers School and the Louisiana State University Graduate School of Banking. He and his wife Erica live in Charleston with their two young children.
