American Bank & Trust
American Bank & Trust, a community bank with deep roots in the Upper Cumberland, opened the doors in 1979 in Livingston, Tennessee. Over the last three decades, the bank has experienced tremendous growth while opening two additional locations in Cookeville, Tennessee. A true community bank, American Bank & Trust focuses on outstanding customer service while providing a personal touch in banking that is so often lost in today’s fast-paced world.
In 2017, American Bank & Trust began a partnership with the College of Business by establishing the first Student Advisory Board for Banking at the University. Marty Maynord, CEO, and Ryan Smith, President, oversee the Student Advisory Board for the bank and were instrumental in establishing the concept and implementing the program in the College of Business. Both Mr. Maynord and Mr. Smith are graduates of the College of Business and now serve as alumni and student advisory board members. For over a decade, Mr. Maynord and Mr. Smith have dedicated their time and energy to assisting the College of Business on a number of fronts to provide additional experiential learning opportunities for students.
