NewDominion names new CFO

Charlotte-based NewDominion Bank has named a new chief financial officer.

Blaine Jackson previously served in the same role at First Cherokee State Bank near Atlanta.

"I have worked with a number of CFOs in my career and Blaine is as talented as you will find," CEO John Hipp said in a statement.

"His background and core strengths are perfect compliments to the new executive team. We expect he will be an exceptionally talented leader and will have a huge positive impact on our company. Charlotte is gaining a highly talented banker."

Hipp said Jackson is the "final piece" in a rebuilt management team. The bank hired two other new executives over the summer.

Jackson, who has a master's in accounting from the University of Alabama, said he plans to relocate his wife and sons to Charlotte from Atlanta early next year.

The Charlotte area is a fantastic place to raise a family and grow a business," Jackson said in the statement. "The opportunities in front of us are exciting and I look forward to becoming involved in this wonderful community."
