Leaders in Banking Excellence


Leaders in Banking Excellence is a celebration of exceptional bankers throughout Tennessee’s history. This is an opportunity to honor those leaders who have helped shape the Tennessee banking industry through permanent recognition in the building’s structure.
 

Background

TBA will accept applications from all member banks. Leaders in Banking Excellence is open to Tennessee bankers who have excelled in one or more of the following areas:

• Banking
• Community service
• Civic involvement


The TBA board of directors carefully reviews all recommendations and approves bankers who exemplify the values of the Tennessee Bankers Association.

Leaders in Banking Excellence are displayed in the TBA headquarters building. The names of honorees are a permanent addition to the TBA building. Due to the prominent location of the Leaders in Banking Excellence display, the honorees are viewed by all TBA visitors, including TBA members, Financial PSI customers, and members of other organizations using the Barrett Training Center.

In addition to recognition in the building, the TBA prepares and distributes a special news release for Nashville and the banker’s hometown media.
