Darrin Williams: Creating Economic Opportunity in Rural and Underserved Communities

Darrin Williams’ career is a unique combination of business, law, and politics. Currently serving as the CEO of Southern Bancorp, Inc., Williams oversees the strategic direction and operations of each of Southern’s three Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI): Southern Bancorp, Inc., a bank holding company; Southern Bancorp Bank, one of America’s largest rural development banks; and Southern Bancorp Community Partners, a 501(c)(3) development finance and lending organization – collectively known as “Southern.”
Darrin talks with David about his work at Southern, the Global Alliance for Banking on Values and why it’s a great time to be a CDFI.
