First M&F makes changes

First M&F Corporation’s subsidiary, Merchants and Farmers Bank, has made changes in its executive management. Barry S. Winford, former chief credit officer, has been named executive vice president – corporate banking. In this position Winford will oversee business development, portfolio management and lending in the following areas: M&F Business Credit (asset-based lending), church and non-profit, land and timber, participations, corporate credit, treasury management and other business-credit areas. He will remain a key participant in the leadership, strategy and future of M&F Bank.

This exciting change will move M&F fully into the area of corporate banking throughout the bank’s market areas.

Eric Hanbury will assume the responsibilities of executive vice president and chief credit officer. He will lead credit underwriting, credit administration and work-out credits and will be a key participant in the bank’s executive leadership.

Hanbury brings 17 years of banking experience, having most recently served as regional credit officer of North Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
