Jacquitta Powell Green

CEO and Chairwoman  ||  Commonwealth National Bank

Commonwealth National Bank was founded in 1976 by 14 African-American men and one diverse member who had a dream to have a financial institution in which they could be treated with dignity and respect.  It serves as the foundation to financial literacy and fiscal responsibility, regardless of economic standing. Commonwealth was born out of community, and Green’s relationship with the bank is inter-generational and spans decades; her grandfather was an early shareholder.

Green feels, “Commonwealth National Bank has taken a path of serving customers who look like our world; culturally diverse and community minded for social impact.”

The Mobile native gives back to her community with organizations such as Penelope House and Boys and Girls Club. She is active with the Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Alliance, and is a graduate of Leadership Mobile and Leadership Alabama. She received a BS in Business Administration from Alabama A&M University and an MBA from Spring Hill College.  She and her family reside in Mobile.
