President and CEO, CedarStone Bank
Each month CedarStone Bank "simply salutes" an influential leader in Wilson County. This month the bank is proud to recognize the Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce.
The Mt. Juliet Chamber has served and supported the local business community in West Wilson County since the organization's inception in 1978. Mark Hinesley, president and CEO, has served the Chamber for 18 years and has seen remarkable changes in the make-up of Mt. Juliet, both in the residential and business districts.
To say this area of the county has grown would be the understatement of the century. Mt. Juliet is one of the fastest growing communities in the state. The success has pushed Wilson County to be the second wealthiest county in the state, and it continues to be "the place to live and work" in Middle Tennessee.
John Sloan, CedarStone Bank vice-president and relationship manager at the Mt. Juliet office, just completed his second term as board chairman of the Mt. Juliet Chamber. "I'm excited about our chamber and where it fits into the Mt. Juliet business community. I firmly believe that you get out what you put into any civic organization. I have definitely benefited both personally and professionally by serving on the board," Sloan said.
The Mt. Juliet Chamber recently celebrated a groundbreaking event announcing plans to move their offices into a new development in late 2016. The site is in the heart of Mt. Juliet where the old Mt. Juliet Elementary School once stood.
CedarStone Bank salutes the Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce, its staff and current board members in their effort to make West Wilson County an even better place to live and work.
