James R. States

With industry experience dating back to 1991, James appreciates the team environment and level of service he’s able to provide his clients at State Bank. As a Banking Center Sales Manager, he finds the products, tools and resources to help his clients’ businesses reach their financial goals.

James is very involved in the community. He’s Chairman of the Paulding County Chamber of Commerce, Treasurer of the Paulding County Hospital Foundation Board, and a member of the Paulding County Economic Development, and Vision Boards. He’s also president-elect of Kiwanis of Paulding County, and a member of the Oakwood Development Corporation.

An ordained minister in the Church of God in Anderson, Indiana, James, his wife Kathy, and son Nick, live in Dupont, Ohio – the kind of town where kids can still play outside all day without their parents having to worry about them.

When he’s not working or volunteering, James enjoys playing church softball, and watching his son participate in a variety of sports.
