First & Farmers National Bank would like to extend their deepest gratitude to Columbia Market President Ann Martin, as she retires from the bank at the end of this month after more than four decades of exemplary service and leadership.
Ann joined First National Bank in 1980 as a Part-Time Teller/Bookkeeper and worked her way up the corporate ladder throughout the years. Before becoming Market President in October 2007, Ann served as Chief of Operations for First National Bank. Her steady hand of experience guided the bank through the merger of First National and First & Farmers National Bank in 2008. She lends her knowledge to virtually every committee at the bank and to the First & Farmers National Bank board, where she has served as a director for over 19 years. Additionally, she has contributed on the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce board, as well as the Columbia-Adair County Economic Development Authority board. In 2008, Ann was awarded the title of "Outstanding Business/Professional Woman of the Year" by the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce. Then, in 2018, she was honored with the Lindsey Wilson College Distinguished Alumna Award for her contributions to local banking and her community.
FFNB President & CEO Terry Pugh stated, "Ms. Martin has been a key member of our management team. She played an important role in the strong growth our bank has seen over the past several years. Most recently, her efforts were devoted to overseeing the construction of our new office on Will Walker Road. Ms. Martin has worked diligently in grooming local management to carry on the tradition of putting the customer first. We will miss her day-to-day leadership, but are pleased she has agreed to continue her service on our board of directors."
FFNB Board Chairman Doug Sapp added, "Throughout her career at FFNB, Ann Martin has been an integral part of the successes enjoyed by this bank. Her leadership and steadfast loyalty are hallmarks of a tenure that few achieve and many more strive to accomplish!"
While retirement will bring the joy of more time spent with her husband, Steve, her two children and four grandchildren, Ann shares these reflections on her career, "For almost 42 years, First National Bank and then First & Farmers National Bank has been my 'work home'. I have grown to love this bank and my current and former co-workers. I counted it a pleasure to work alongside all of these wonderful individuals. Our combined goal has always been to make this bank the best it could be. Banking has changed greatly over these years, but I am pleased that this bank has remained committed to 'Putting the Customer First'. I trust my work here has helped accomplish this goal and that this commitment will continue in the future under the leadership of the new Columbia Market President, Brad Hodges."
First & Farmers National Bank, Inc., a community bank with assets in excess of $653 million, offers eleven banking locations and serves the financial needs of customers in Adair, Clinton, Cumberland, and Pulaski counties. First & Farmers is very proud of their long history as a well-respected, safe, sound, and profitable bank.
