Cheeseburgers in paradise? What do Jimmy Buffett and a group of bankers and lawyers have in common?
Our financial institutions team hosted banking professionals from across the state at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville in downtown Nashville a few weeks ago as part of their annual “Day on the Hill” event. As a proud associate member of the Tennessee Bankers Association and committed legal partner in the Tennessee banking community, Bone McAllester Norton enjoyed supporting this annual program as the luncheon sponsor for the second year.
Held annually, the “Day on the Hill” program is organized by the Tennessee Bankers Association’s Young Bankers Division to provide an opportunity for current and future leaders from banks across the state to explore the inner workings of the Tennessee legislative process. Trace Blankenship, one of our attorneys who advises bank executives and boards of directors on strategic transactions and regulatory matters, emceed the event, which featured a keynote address from the commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions, Greg Gonzales, and remarks about Tennessee’s banking industry from the law firm’s chairman, Charles W. Bone. Several attorneys from our financial institutions team described “Eleven Things That Could Keep a Banker Awake at Night” (and some hair-raising stories to illustrate) including Jack Stringham, Charles Robert Bone, David Anthony, Andrea Perry, Johnny Garrett, Rob Pinson and Tucker Herndon. Tracie Lomax, immediate past president of the Young Bankers Division, and Jay England, incoming president, welcomed the group, and officials of the Tennessee Bankers Association, Tim Amos, Colin Barrett, Amy Smith, were responsible for organizing the “Day on the Hill” event.
