A 22-year banking professional and a lifelong Warren County resident has been named assistant vice president and branch manager/ mortgage loan officer at First National Bank of Middle Tennessee, Pieter van Vuuren, president and CEO, announced.
Jewell Walker will start at the Smithville Highway location of First National Bank of Middle Tennessee. Her duties will include being the branch manager and mortgage loan officer.
“We are extremely excited to have someone of Jewell’s experience and reputation at our bank,” van Vuuren said. “Jewell is a very well-rounded banker and the type of employee who associates very well with our core values. Having spent most of her career in this community, we feel her addition will make us a stronger bank.”
