Ann Martin to retire from First & Farmers National Bank


All are invited to a Retirement Reception in Ann's honor on Thursday, June 30, 2022, from 1pmCT until 4pmCT at First & Farmers National Bank's newest Columbia location at 114 Will Walker Road. Refreshments will be served.

By Andrea Clue

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.
