DANVILLE, VA, February 2, 2023 – American National Bank and Trust Company announced today the promotions of Matt Hubbard and Trent Wall to Regional Presidents.
Wall joined American National as Market President in 2016 as it entered the Winston-Salem, North Carolina market. He oversaw the construction of the bank’s full-service branch at 22 Miller Street which opened in late 2019. American National realized early success in the market and has grown its Winson-Salem presence under Wall’s leadership. Originally from Winston-Salem and a graduate of Appalachian State with a degree in Business Administration, Trent has built a talented team of community bankers who are committed to serving this important market. As Regional President, Trent will continue to oversee the Winston-Salem market and also work with the bank’s Danville, Martinsville, and South Boston markets.
Rocky Mount, Virginia native, Matt Hubbard has been Market President of our Franklin market since 2021. The Franklin market has two full-service locations in Rocky Mount and Moneta at Westlake. The bank has seen positive growth to our balance sheet and our community presence due to Matt’s oversight and commitment to community banking. A resident of Roanoke with an Economics degree from Radford University and an MBA from William & Mary, Matt will now work closely our Roanoke, New River Valley, and Lynchburg markets in addition to the Franklin market.
Jeffrey V. Haley, President & CEO remarked, “Both Matt and Trent champion the strong culture and values that are important to us and I have been so impressed with them – not just as bankers, but as exceptional people and natural leaders. I know we will continue to see great things come from their expanded leadership.”
In addition to their roles at American National, Wall and Hubbard are both very active in the banking industry and in their communities. Both have graduated from their respective state banking association’s School of Banking and have both been named a Top 40 under 40 in their markets. Wall has been very involved in various board positions with Kaleideum Museum, the Sawtooth School for Visual Arts and the Ronald McDonald House in Winston-Salem. Equally active in the Roanoke Valley community, Hubbard has served on the board of the Blue Ridge Mountains Council for Boy Scouts of America, The Grandin Theatre and the Science Museum of Western Virginia.
