And we are committed to building our characteristic Responsive Relationship Banking brand here in the greater Nashville area just as we have across all our locations.”
Edwards explained the expansion into Williamson County aligns with their strategy of providing responsive relationship banking to clients in high growth markets.
“We are pleased to open this new branch in Brentwood,” Edwards said, “and just as importantly to staff it with several experienced, Nashville-area relationship managers. Each is active locally and has deep ties the Middle Tennessee community.”

Norman has been involved with many area non-profits most recently serving on the board of A Vintage Affair. “This is a great community and Mountain Commerce is a community minded bank, this is a great fit for this county,” said Norman.
