United Community Bank adds Jonathan Strauss to Columbia team

United Community Bank welcomed Jonathan Strauss as a Vice President/Commercial Relationship Manager to its growing Columbia team.

“We are happy to have Jonathan join us as we continue to expand in this area,” said Shannon Stephens, Midlands President for United Community Bank. “He has a deep desire to support the Midlands community and his past business experience, especially in the medical and dental fields, will be a great asset to our team.”

Strauss joins United from Patterson Dental Supply where he served as a New Practice Representative and Territory Manager. In his new role, he will focus on building relationships and increasing commercial loans and deposits for the bank in the market. Strauss is the fifth addition to United’s Columbia team, a market they entered in July 2019.

“United Community Bank’s commitment to their customers and involvement in the Midlands are two key factors that attracted me,” said Strauss. “I have been given a fantastic opportunity with an incredible bank, and I look forward to working alongside the team to help business owners and the community.”

Strauss is a native of Columbia. He is a 2009 graduate of Wofford College and former member of the Terrier’s golf team. He now serves as the Chairman of the Golf Committee at Spring Valley Country Club, a club he has been involved with since his youth. When Strauss is not working or on the golf course, he can be found supporting the Gamecocks.
