Bank of Tennessee Selects nCino to Automate Business Processes and Enhance Customer Experience

WILMINGTON, N.C., Jan. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – nCino, the worldwide leader in cloud banking, today announced that Bank of Tennessee, a $1.3 billion-asset bank headquartered in Kingsport, Tennessee, has selected the nCino Bank Operating System to automate and streamline its banking processes across the organization to enhance performance, support future growth and offer their clients the latest technology to meet their evolving needs.

On a mission to become the top performing independent financial institution in the state by 2020, Bank of Tennessee spent two years carefully vetting more than 20 vendors before deciding on nCino. By adopting nCino’s Bank Operating System, Bank of Tennessee is gaining a single, end-to-end cloud-based solution, built on the Salesforce platform, that spans business lines, replaces point solutions and manual-based processes and digitally engages customers to deliver a true competitive advantage.

“We had already established a workflow that would support our future growth, so all we needed was an operating system that could accommodate our processes without requiring us to restructure them to fit into or match the software,” explained Robert Bradley, EVP and chief risk officer at Bank of Tennessee. “nCino was the only solution we identified that was built to support our vision and not the other way around. As an added bonus, we have the opportunity with nCino to expand into other lines of business such as deposit account opening, something we’re already putting on our roadmap for future implementation.”

Young Bankers Division Elect New Leadership

Nashville, Tenn., April 15, 2019—The Tennessee Bankers Association’s Young Bankers Division elected new 2019-2020 officers and directors during the organization’s Leadership Convention, which took place April 7-9 in Chattanooga.

New Officers
Delegates elected the following bankers to serve as officers:
• Chairman—Samuel L. Short, Senior Vice President/Senior Lender, Southern Bank of Tennessee, Mount Juliet
• Chairman-elect—Derrick Whitten, Vice President, The Hardin County Bank, Savannah
• Vice Chairman—Michael J. Saporito, II, Senior Vice President, Mountain Commerce Bank, Knoxville
• Immediate Past Chairman—Joshua D. Lane, Vice President & Knoxville Market Executive, First National Bank of Oneida, Knoxville

As chairman of the division, Short will serve as an ex-officio member of the Tennessee Bankers Association board of directors.

“It is an honor to serve as the chairman of the TBA Young Bankers Division, which has been shaped over the last 50 years by some of the most respected bankers in Tennessee,” Short stated. “As in many industries, banks are looking to identify and groom the next generation of leaders. The Young Bankers Division has a well-established track record of providing the network and professional development skills bankers need to be effective and influential leaders in their banks and communities.”

In addition to the four executive officers, the Young Bankers Division is governed by a nine-member board composed of three directors from each of the three grand divisions of the state—East, Middle, and West. Directors serve a three-year term with one director from each of the grand divisions rotating off each year and is replaced by a newly elected banker from the same division.

Directors elected to the board during this year’s convention were:
• East Tennessee—Debbie Reid, Assistant Controller, Citizens Tri-County Bank, Soddy Daisy
• Middle Tennessee—Coty Grissom, Loan Officer, Homeland Community Bank, McMinnville
• West Tennessee—Lauren Smith, Vice President/Risk Management, Decatur County Bank, Decaturville

Fulfilling one-year of a vacated term in East Tennessee is Jared Palazzola, Senior Vice President, Bank of Tennessee, Knoxville.
