FirstBank’s Regional President, David Forshee, is a Nashville native and Brentwood resident. This is local leadership and local decisions based on experience. Will believes that banking, at its most simple level, is a people business. “We are here to serve our community. If we do our job well, then anytime someone thinks of banking, they think of FirstBank and how we might be able to help them build a better future.”
When asked what he loves most about his job, Will doesn’t hesitate to say it is the opportunity to meet or talk to new people daily. He loves to hear everyone’s story about where they were born and raised, where they have been, and what brought them to Williamson County. He takes a genuine interest in the people he meets.

The FirstBank investment Will is most proud of is the dedication of FirstBank’s time, resources and people to improving life in Williamson County. FirstBank began an initiative in late 2021 to allot paid time off for its associates to volunteer in the community. As a result, FirstBank associates logged approximately 2,400 community service hours to almost 200 different organizations in that short time. In 2022, FirstBank has tripled that number of volunteer hours and is still going strong. Giving back is an essential part of the FirstBank culture. FirstBank associates are coaching local sports teams, organizing school supply drives, volunteering at Pumpkinfest, attending the Heritage Ball, handing out bubbles at Brentfest, working with Youth Leadership Franklin, sponsoring the Williamson County Fair, participating in events with Williamson Medical Center and so much more.   During the week and on weekends, FirstBank truly “gives more” to our local communities. 
In addition to building relationships with clients, Will and his team are always looking for other community-spirited associates to join their team. From credit underwriting to financial service representatives, from relationship managers to IT personnel. It’s more than a job. It’s a family. 
FirstBank is a Tennessee bank with the right products to serve you and the community spirit to know you. Change is inevitable, but the things that make being part of a community great, like strong ties and trusted relationships, never change.
