Mountain Community Bank, a Division of Bank of Tennessee
Banks & LendersFinancial Services
Like many other successful companies, we came from humble beginnings. Mountain Community Bank opened in 2004 to serve the Western North Carolina market. But our story started back in 1939 when a group local business owners and leaders in downtown Elizabethton, TN opened Carter County Bank. William B. Greene Jr. purchased Carter County Bank and First People's Bank from the Carroll Reece family in 1964 making him the country?s youngest bank president at the age of 26. Over the past 75 years, we expanded to include 6 branches throughout Carter County plus Mountain Community Bank.
Mr. Greene and his father, William B. Greene Sr., soon realized there was an opportunity to expand to the rest of the Tri-Cities area and opened Bank of Tennessee in 1974 in downtown Kingsport, TN. Forty years later, Bank of Tennessee's presence included locations in Bristol, Johnson City, Gray, Erwin, Nashville TN, and an Operations Center located near the Tri-Cities Regional Airport.
In January 2013, Carter County Bank and Bank of Tennessee joined together to form one financial institution. Combining two strong financial institutions meant we could remain competitive in our pricing and technology offerings. With 98% of the ownership located here, and 100% of the business decisions made in the Tri-Cities, we are genuinely a locally owned and operated company.
We are a full service community bank that understands the challenges and opportunities our community faces, and we can help by providing financial solutions to meet your goals.
