Member: Amber Jones
Company: Commercial Bank and Trust Company
Position: Secondary Market Mortgage Liaison Work
Areas of Expertise:
"I have worked in every area of banking over the last 15 years from the teller line to working with the secondary market mortgage department in my current role. I also assist our loan officers in preparing documents for all types of loans."
"I have two children, ages 13 and 7, and currently my spare time is spent keeping up with their various activities. I am also an actively involved member of Second Baptist Church."
Why did you join the Chamber?
"I think the Chamber is an important part of commerce in a community, and I was interested in being a part of helping all our businesses, from industry to mom and pop shops, grow."
Why do you serve on the Board of Directors?
"Having grown up in Obion County, and now having children growing up here, I was eager to be involved in the growth of this amazing small town. It allows me to help, first hand, in making sure the businesses here are taken care of, and that their needs/requests are met. I also get to express my opinion as an employee of a local bank, a resident, and parent."
What is the Chamber's role in the business community?
"I have seen first-hand how the Chamber uses events, such as Business Matters and Business After Hours, to assist in all businesses in our community being able to network. This is crucial for businesses, new, old, small, and large, in our area to grow and succeed. Currently, serving as Vice President, I am looking forward to moving in to the President role of our chamber board in July and see what the year 2015-2016 has in store for us."
