Lebanon-based First Freedom Bank has hired a veteran consumer banking executive to oversee its retail and mortgage businesses.
Kenny Beavers has joined First Freedom as senior vice president and director of retail banking. He has more than 35 years of experience and has long been based in Lawrenceburg. Most recently, he was consumer market manager at Capital Bank, the successor to Green Bank, for which he oversaw 28 branches in eight counties. Before that, he also worked for National Bank of Commerce and Boatmen’s Bank of Tennessee.
“This position demands a high level of responsibility and a uniquely capable individual to ensure the success of our operations,” said John Lancaster, president and CEO of six-year-old First Freedom. “Kenny is that individual. He is a professional community banker of the highest caliber and we are thrilled to have him on our team.”
Beavers, who will relocate to Wilson County, is a graduate of both the Mid-South School of Banking and the Tennessee School of Banking. A native of Lawrenceburg, he is the vice chairman of the Lawrenceburg Industrial Development Board and Treasurer of the Lawrence County Public Transportation Board, among other things.
First Freedom runs three offices in Wilson County and has about $270 million in assets. The institution in November exited the Treasury’s TARP program after an auction of the government’s stake.
