The Board of Directors of Bank of Walterboro has named Gwendolyn Bunton as Bank President effective as of September 17. She one of only two community bank presidents working within the State of South Carolina.

Gwen has been working as acting president since January 1. She was born and raised in Walterboro, is married to Terry Bunton and the couple has two sons, James Bunton, Jr. and Ryan Bunton, daughters-in-law Jenny and Amy, and grandchildren Jim, Catherine, Hannah, and Jessee, all of Walterboro.

Gwen has been with Bank of Walterboro since 1989. She was also with Farmers and Merchants Bank and C & S Bank for 18 years prior to joining Bank of Walterboro. She has worked in all areas of banking during her career, with her latest position being Vice President and Cashier over Operations and Human Resources for Bank of Walterboro.

Gwen said it will be business as usual at the bank. She, along with the employees of Bank of Walterboro, will continue to serve their customers with whatever their needs may be.

The only other woman community bank president works in the upstate area. She is Gwen Thompson of the Clover Community Bank. “I think it’s kind of unusual that we are both named Gwen,” the Bank of Walterboro President said.
