First Tennessee Bank recently announced it has expanded its music industry banking team with the appointment of Senior Vice President Jarrod Grubb.
Grubb, who previously was senior vice president with First Tennessee’s Private Client Services division, is based at the bank’s Music Row office. The appointment reflects First Tennessee’s continued investment in the future of the Music Industry Group, which will celebrate its third anniversary next month.
“Our group operates with an entrepreneurial spirit and independence that’s rare in the banking industry,” said Andrew Kintz, executive vice president of First Tennessee’s Music Industry Group and Private Client Services operation in Middle Tennessee. “Each team member also has a genuine love for the music industry, which has allowed us to provide a level of service that’s second to none. Jarrod shares these ideals and is the perfect addition to our team.”
With nearly 15 years of banking experience, Grubb will serve as music relationship manager and report to Kintz. Grubb joined First Tennessee in 2005 and began working in the Private Client Services division in 2008, where he served both high net worth and music industry clients.
In addition to Grubb and Kintz, the core team of bankers in the Music Industry Group includes:
● Bryan Bolton, music relationship manager, provides specialized financial services to music industry businesses and individuals. Bolton has 18 years of experience working in commercial banking, private banking, wealth management and sports and entertainment. He has spent the past 13 years in music industry banking in Nashville.
● Mark Ford, music relationship manager, has advised individuals and businesses in the Nashville music community since 2006. Ford started his career in Nashville and returned to Music City in 2011 to focus on music, sports and entertainment banking.
The Music Industry Group provides specialized financial services to music industry businesses and individuals – including publishers, live music companies, promotion and development firms, management firms, agencies, labels, producers, artists, songwriters, attorneys and other music industry centers of influence – both locally and nationally.
