The winning wealth management team at First National Bank of Middle Tennessee has added another member.

Haile Adams has joined AndyKnowlesandShannon Haston, who offer 41 years of combined experience in the financial management industry.

One thing that beams about this group is its hometown charm. All three are Warren County High School graduates and it's that hometown level of service they aim to provide to every customer.

'We've all been part of this community for years,' said Haston, whose mother, Diane Starkey, was a longtime school teacher here. 'Doing business is all about developing relationships and we all have personal connections here in Warren County.'

Adams is excited to come on board after graduating from MTSU in November.

'It's been nice to have people come in and tell me they know my grandparents or they know my mom,' said Adams.

Beauty pageant enthusiasts may remember Adams as Fairest of the Fair in 2017. She's also been very active as a program coordinator for Kids of the Community in recent years.

'Kids of the Community is such a good program because it gives kids the love and attention they need outside their home,' said Adams. 'It's not helping people plan for retirement, but it is helping kids take a step for a better life for themselves.'

First National president Pieter van Vuuren says Adams will be an asset to the bank as it continues to grow.

'Our Wealth Management Department is fortunate to have Haile join our team,' said van Vuuren. 'We are also glad that she has decided to come back to McMinnville and help our county prosper. With all three of the staff members of FNB Wealth Management being from Warren County, we believe that we are perfectly poised to grow this department even more than we have over the last several years.'

Knowles says the bank's Wealth Management Department realizes the responsibility that comes with helping people make financial decisions that will greatly impact their retirement and their future stability.

Knowles says the goal is to 'assist individuals in making informed investment and financial decisions through professional relationships based on integrity, trust and personalized service.'

Having an account at First National is not a requirement for utilizing the bank's Wealth Management Services. The department can be reached at 474-5790.
