Craig will serve Duplin County members as a loan officer in the Kenansville branch.

Today, cows are in his backyard and he is surrounded by family who also live on the farm. He enjoys fishing with his children in the same pond he fished in as a child. With agricultural roots and valuable experience, we are excited to have Craig join the team. He says that he is looking forward to getting to know the customers that make up the CFFC family. “I look forward to forging strong relationships with existing customers while helping the next generation of farmers meet their financial needs,” he shared.
