NASHVILLE, TN – Tennessee Bank & Trust announced today that it has hired a new senior vice president of commercial banking, Hobbs Yarbrough. Yarbrough has worked in the finance industry for over 20 years and has broad experience in commercial banking, real estate finance, risk management, land acquisition and more.
