Willard “Chuck” Lewis

Unity National Bank

Georgia Market President

In his nearly 35-year career, Chuck Lewis’ name has been synonymous with banking, capital and finance. But, when Georgia became a major player in the film production industry, Mr. Lewis, a Georgia native and film buff, grasped the opportunity to merge his affinity for film and capital by becoming an executive producer. He is Chief Executive Officer of Align Entertainment and majority owner.

He is most well-known for his planning and execution of the merger of First Southern Bank and Citizens Trust Bank in 1998. In 2006, he founded One Georgia Bank marking the first time a newly chartered bank was formed with over $25 million in capital in the history of the United States by an African American. He has served as the Chief Financial Officer of Bronner Bros, Inc. and has served on several Board of Trustees and is archived in the History Makers.

Mr. Lewis is the father of three and believes that family is the cornerstone of his legacy. When he’s not searching for projects to finance, he can be found on the golf course. Willard “Chuck” Lewis is an alum of Morehouse College ’83 and is a lifetime member of the Morehouse College Alumni.
