More About Tony

Tony Hyde joins Strategic Advisory Partners as a Financial Advisor with a long history in banking and community engagement.

If you’re from Thomasville, you’ve probably met him through his work with the Thomasville Chamber of Commerce, the Lions Club, and the Tom A. Finch YMCA Board of Directors, to name a few.

After twenty-two years in the banking industry, where he served as Branch Manager, Commercial Lender, and Senior Vice President, Tony decided to take an exciting new approach to assisting the people he’s supported through the years.

When he’s not helping his clients make better financial decisions, you can find him tinkering with his impressive classic car collection or spending time with his family.

His outstanding reputation, warm personality, and genuine sense of humor make him a perfect fit for our growing firm.
