Middle Tennessee Familiarity Among Principal Offerings at Mountain Commerce Bank’s Brentwood Financial Center
Entering the new Mountain Commerce Bank (MCB) Financial Center at 5205 Maryland Way in Brentwood, it’s hard not to notice a sense of camaraderie and esprit de corps among the employees. It’s evident - even palpable - throughout the three-story brick building, and Andrew Barrett, MCB senior vice president and senior relationship manager, has a ready explanation.
“We opened our doors at the end of June,” Andrew said. “And while Brentwood and the surrounding communities are still getting to know the Mountain Commerce Bank name, most of us who work here are long-time Nashvillians and residents of Williamson County.”
Senior vice president and senior relationship manager Joshua Marsh adds, “In some cases, our leadership team members’ paths crossed long before coming to work at MCB, socially, professionally or both. So we’ve known one another - and the local area - for many, many years.”
It would seem that those connections not only make for a harmonious, collegial work environment - one firing on all cylinders - but, more importantly, they provide a solid foundation for great business and personal banking relationships between MCB and its customers.
In addition to Andrew and Joshua, the team at MCB’s Brentwood Financial Center includes Janet Norman, vice president and branch manager; Hunter Reed, vice president and relationship manager; Samuel Stevenson, assistant vice president/credit analyst and portfolio manager;
Alye Jarnigan, treasury management analyst; personal bankers Brad Ownby and Melissa Moss; and Amy Robertson, client service assistant. Collectively, the group has more than seventy years of banking and financial services experience, almost all of it in the Greater Nashville market.
The connection to middle Tennessee extends well beyond the team’s work lives. They have actively volunteered in the local community with the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce,
the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Phoenix Club of Nashville, Habitat for Humanity, Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, Leadership Brentwood and A Vintage Affair - in addition to their respective houses of worship.
“Our state-of-the-art technology and relentless focus on Responsive Relationship Banking have built a distinctive reputation that we believe sets Mountain Commerce Bank apart,” said Bill Edwards, MCB’s president and chief executive officer. “But equally important, we think, is having a solid team at each financial center location with a keen understanding of the local market.”
As they planned their expansion into the Greater Nashville area, Mountain Commerce Bank - with its century-long history in Tennessee - placed a heavy emphasis on ensuring that branch leadership was exceedingly familiar with the communities it would be serving. In the case of its Brentwood branch, Bill believes it’s ‘Mission Accomplished.’
“Our key team members all have strong local ties,” Bill noted. “That means we know and understand our customers, we’re familiar with the dynamics of the local market, and we’re heavily invested in both our client’s and our community’s success. We want to see both prosper.”
“It is also worth noting,” Bill added, “that as one of the few Tennessee-headquartered banks, funds on deposit at MCB are redeployed locally through loans to neighbors and community businesses, helping to build and grow the area economy. It’s an approach that benefits the entire area.”
So the next time you are driving to or through Brentwood, stop into the Mountain Commerce Bank Financial Center on Maryland Way, just east of Brentwood City Hall, and meet the team. There is a very good chance that you already know at least one of them!
MCB’s Brentwood branch is a full-service branch offering a wide array of personal and business banking products and services, including deposits, loans, financial planning and investments.
