“I am a firm believer that there is an opportunity within every conversation or interaction, and so I am always listening and looking for ways that I can help my clients achieve their business goals,” says C. Alan Jefferson. “As a business banker, I have the privilege of working with a wide range of clients, from startups to mature companies. Therefore, I am also always looking for smart and unique ways to connect my clients so they can benefit from one another.” Jefferson’s father, Bill Jefferson, was a community banker for 37 years in their hometown of Lewes, DE. In 1967, he started the original Columbia Bank and Trust Company. “There are dozens of successful enterprises around today because of him and that little bank. Needless to say, I am extremely proud of him,” says C. Alan Jefferson.

QUICK TIP: “Dig your well before you’re thirsty.”

Mike Battle“Alan took on considerable risk in getting behind my fledgling business. At the time, I had just started my company, had an employee base of two people, and no idea what kind of banking relationship I needed to have to support my growth. Alan took on the role of trusted advisor in helping me create a solid foundation for my company. Alan’s patience and support enabled me to quickly grow my business. … He gave me the tools needed to make my business a success.” – Mike Battle, CEO, BRMi
