F&M Bank keeps market share lead in Montgomery County

The Leaf Chronicle, CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – F&M Bank has claimed the No. 1 spot in the county for the 11th consecutive year, according to 2014 market share of deposit statistics released recently by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

The newly published report – based on deposits through June 30, 2014 – includes all 11 FDIC-insured financial institutions operating within Montgomery County. The report showed that F&M increased its percentage of the market’s deposits from 17.72 percent in 2013 to 18.15 percent in 2014, and increased overall deposits by nearly 4.5 percent, now exceeding $397 million in Montgomery County.

Sammy Stuard, president and CEO of F&M Bank, credits F&M Bank’s consistently strong market position to a combination of high-touch service blended with the bank’s commitment to provide financial services that customers want in Montgomery County and throughout Middle Tennessee.

“Our bank is constantly improving products and technology that our customers desire in today’s constantly changing financial services market,” stated Stuard. “Our bank is also focused on providing our customers with ‘extras’ – such as points, cash-back and merchant discount coupons – that can provide a boost for tight household budgets.”

“In addition to providing maximum value to our customers, F&M never loses sight that for someone to choose F&M over so many competitors – which includes other banks, credit unions and even retail supercenters – our bank’s high touch, personal service and community involvement is the ultimate difference maker,” claims Stuard, who served as 2008 chairman of the Tennessee Bankers Association.

“We exist to improve our community by supporting businesses and using local dollars to help families buy homes, send their kids to college and build financial security. It’s a responsibility we take seriously, and it shows with the way we embrace innovation and treat our customers.”
