Candice Smith brought with her over 15 years of experience in the field of Human Resources when she joined the Community First Bank & HFG Trust team as our HR Director in 2020. Having managed teams of 100+ employees across over 80 different locations, Candice is a true HR generalist with the ability to support all facets of the HR landscape. She holds SPHR and SHRM-SCP certifications and has held executive HR leadership roles for over ten years.
A former military kid, Candice was born in California before going on to live in several states throughout the U.S.(she has been to every state but Alaska!) This sparked an affinity for travel that, before joining the CFB & HFG team, led her to her most interesting trip to date—a professional opportunity working with a non-profit in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
When she is not working or planning her next travel destination, Candice enjoys staying active via gardening, caring for her rescue dogs, swimming, and playing co-op video games with her husband.
