Joe Crocker

Director of Local Impact in Forsyth County

At the Trust

I plan strategies and execute investments that address the needs of financially disadvantaged residents and increase quality of life in Forsyth County. I care deeply about the population of residents who don’t enjoy some of the privileges and quality of life that I enjoy.

I Work On

My Proudest Accomplishment

I joined the Trust in May 2010 after enjoying a full career in banking—helping people to reach both their financial and life goals. Highlights at the Trust include my involvement in the Cleveland Ave. Dental Clinic, Nurse Family Partnership, El Buen Pastor, and Forsyth Connects, to name a few.

When the Day is Done

I’m a servant to my church and my community, and I’m involved in many outside activities. My two grandchildren are the joy of my “free” time, and I also play a little golf when time permits.
