Bank of tennessee named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2017
August 28, 2017 – Bank of Tennessee has been named one of the Best Banks to Work For in 2017. The Best Banks to Work For program, which was initiated in 2013 by American Banker and Best Companies Group, identifies, recognizes and honors U.S. banks for outstanding employee satisfaction.
“I am so proud of our culture of customer, team and community spirit at Bank of Tennessee. This positive attitude permeates all we do and it is nice to be recognized as part of this elite group by the American Banker,” said Roy Harmon, Chairman and CEO of Bank of Tennessee.
Determining the Best Banks to Work For involves a two-step process. The first step involves an evaluation of participating companies’ workplace policies, practices, and demographics. In the second step, employee surveys are conducted to directly assess the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. The combined scores determine the top banks and the final ranking.
“Our annual ranking recognizes the financial institutions that are committed to investing in employees’ job satisfaction, career development and personal growth – a ‘return on assets’ that can be hard to measure by traditional means,” said Marc Hochstein, editor in chief of American Banker. “One of the most valuable assets for any organization is the team of people it employs, and banks are no exception.”
Bank of Tennessee President, Dale Fair said, ” A positive workforce environment is as important, if not more important, than compensation. Employee engagement and focus truly impacts the workplace culture. At Bank of Tennessee, employees remain our number one asset”.
Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
Full results of this year’s program are available in the September issue of American Banker Magazine. The program is open to commercial banks, thrifts, savings banks and other chartered retail financial institutions with at least 50 employees in the United States.

David Haynes Joins Bank of Tennessee for Expansion into Knoxville Area
Bank of Tennessee, a community bank headquartered in East Tennessee, announces that David Haynes will become its Knoxville President. The $1 billion bank has been patiently looking for the right person to open up the Knoxville market to strategically expand across Tennessee.
Bank of Tennessee Chairman and CEO Roy L. Harmon Jr. says, “In order for a bank our size to enter into a market with competition like Knoxville, two things had to happen. We needed to find the right person who understands the market and the challenges of that area, and we needed to make sure we are able to offer services that those new customers need.” Learn more »
Haynes has already acquired a permanent location site that will be announced shortly and has hired five additional teammates. Haynes says that what will set Bank of Tennessee apart is best-in-class products and advice. “We are a very high-touch, high-service bank. A lot of banks will talk about that but won’t execute,” he says. “Our expectations are for our customers to know us, and to offer that personal service that will be different.”
Haynes, a graduate of Ohio University, is a career banker and previously served as the Senior Vice President and Managing Director of Investor Commercial Real Estate for FSG Bank N.A., a senior executive with First American National Bank and a District President for AmSouth Bank. He currently serves on the board of the National Embryo Donation Center, the East Tennessee Foundation, the Ted Russell Foundation and the finance committee of Fox Den Country Club. He is an active member of First Baptist Church Concord and participates in numerous charitable campaigns. He and his wife, Jane Ann, enjoy traveling and spending time with their four children and two granddaughters.
