William Ray Named VP/Business Banker for M&F Bank’s Raleigh Market
Durham, NC – M&F Bank recently added William M. “Will” Ray to their business development team in the Raleigh market. Ray will serve as Vice President/Business Banker and operate out of the Bank’s Hargett Street branch in downtown Raleigh. His background includes consumer and commercial lending, consultative sales & relationship management, and financial analysis.
Ray joins M&F after having served successfully in positions of increasing responsibility with a number of regional banks. “I look forward to applying my energy and my experience in small business lending to the Bank’s efforts to increase commercial loan acquisition, and to help enhance its visibility throughout Raleigh and Wake County,” Ray said in describing his goals.
According to Ray, M&F Bank’s long-standing tradition of encouraging community service also meshes well with his own views toward civic involvement. He currently serves as a board member of FACES, Family & Community Empowerment Services, which helps provide resources and training to those who find themselves in emergent situations. “I appreciate the legacy of an institution founded 110 years ago to serve the historically underserved, and I’m excited to be part of a company that believes in ‘giving back’ to the community as I do.”
Ray is an alumnus of North Carolina State University, where he studied Business Management and Marketing.
