FirstBank recognized for board diversity
Nonprofit group 2020 Women on Boards has named FB Financial Corp., the holding company of Nashville-based FirstBank, a Winning ‘W’ Company for the second year in a row.
The recognition is given to publicly traded companies whose boards are made up of at least 20 percent women.
FB Financial Corporation’s nine-member board includes Agenia Clark, president and CEO of the Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee, and Emily Reynolds, former secretary of the U.S. Senate.
“We applaud [FB Financial] Executive Chairman Jim Ayers and the FB Financial board of directors for engaging the diverse opinions and perspectives of women on its board,” Betsy Berkhemer-Credaire, 2020 Women on Boards CEO, said in a release. “Studies have shown that women in positions of leadership are uniquely valuable to corporations and the challenges they face today.”
FirstBank has been named as one of Middle Tennessee’s Top Workplaces by The Tennessean for four years running, winning the 2018 Hall of Fame award. To be a Top Workplace, FirstBank met high standards for a healthy workplace culture as ranked by its own employees.
