Tracy Haney and Kelly Still join community bank’s Chattanooga office

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (May 13, 2024) – FirstBank today announced two new strategic additions to its Chattanooga team – Tracy Haney joins as Senior Vice President, Senior Relationship Manager, and Kelly Still will support her as Relationship Manager Assistant.

“These two are dedicated community members with decades of experience in this market. They have a lot to offer our team, and we are excited to have them on board,” said Jim McKenzie, Market President.   

As Senior Relationship Manager, Haney will strengthen FirstBank’s commercial banking services throughout the Chattanooga market. With over 35 years of banking experience, Haney has held various roles including most recently serving as Senior Vice President, Relationship Manager at SmartBank, where she spent the past two decades. Haney received her undergraduate degree in Business Management. A dedicated community member, Haney served as President of the East Ridge Chamber Council for two years and has been a mentor for the Tennessee Promise Program since 2017. In her free time, Haney enjoys spending time with her son and cheering on the Tennessee Vols. 

“I’m fortunate to step into this role with Kelly by my side, as I know we are a great team with high personal standards for client service,” said Haney. “FirstBank’s local approach to banking is a perfect match for us, and I look forward to working with new and familiar faces in the area as we help to grow in Chattanooga!”  

Still brings 42 years of banking experience to her new role as Relationship Manager Assistant, where she will support Haney and other team members as they build, strengthen, and maintain long-standing relationships with current and prospective clients. She, too, comes to FirstBank from SmartBank and has held a wide variety of positions through her decades in the industry. Still has resided in East Ridge for 35 years, and in her free time, she enjoys volunteering on the Food Bank Team at Brainerd Baptist Church and spending time with her husband, two children, and three grandchildren.

“Both Tracy and Kelly are industry veterans who have built a reputation for success and excellence in this market,” said Brent Ball, Regional President. “We are thrilled to welcome this duo and their combined wealth of knowledge to our team.”
