Prior to joining Priority One, Wyatt owned and operated his own construction company with residential and commercial projects throughout the Gulf Coast of Florida. He has also served as the controller and voice president of finance for some of the nation’s largest homebuilders, including Lexington and Mercedes Homes.

“We are thrilled to have Jeff join Priority One. His extensive experience working with companies of all sizes will no doubt help us as we continue to grow and thrive,” said Lisa Gladstone, president and CEO of Priority One Financial Services, in a statement.
