As a result of Tennessee Bank & Trust’s intent to expand its focus in Williamson County, Jeff Young has been appointed as the bank’s new Williamson County Area Executive. The addition of a new role and greater focus in Williamson County follows the bank’s recent transition to an independent, local, Middle Tennessee bank. The bank opened its flagship branch in Franklin in 2004, and has since established a significant presence in both Williamson and Davidson counties.
“Promoting Jeff to this role strengthens the bank’s leadership and is part of an ongoing strategy to expand our reach in Williamson County,” stated Dan B. Andrews, Jr., president & CEO of the newly chartered bank. “Jeff’s expertise in building strong relationships and creating a unique customer experience will be instrumental in helping to generate new revenue and growth.”
Young, a 15-year veteran of the banking community, joined Tennessee Bank & Trust in 2008. As Vice President of Commercial Banking, he was instrumental in the growth of the bank. In his new position, Young will oversee operations of the bank’s Franklin office and focus on coordinating the bank’s growth strategy across Williamson County. Already an active member of the community, he plans to move his entire family to the county later this year.
“Over the past several years, we have experienced steady growth in Williamson County and believe that our newly independent status will better equip us to serve the needs of this growing market,” Young said. “I am thrilled by the opportunity to lead our efforts in this area and look forward to cultivating new relationships across the community.”
