FNBC promotes Busch and Price
Busch joined FNBC in 2019 as Assistant Vice President and Business Development Officer for the Bank’s two Fulton County offices, located in Salem and Mammoth Spring. He is a respected leader in Fulton County and has been instrumental in FNBC’s recent success within this market. In his expanded role, he will assume market leadership for both offices, managing the lending team and continuing to expand FNBC’s footprint through commercial lending efforts, deposit growth, as well as community involvement and support.
Price started his career with FNBC in 2016 as the Branch Manager of the Batesville office and in 2019 was hired as a commercial lender in Ash Flat. He was a top lender for the Bank’s rollout of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) that was launched by the Small Business Administration in response to the strain many businesses and industries felt due to Covid-19. He will continue to cultivate and build relationships with commercial clients in and around Sharp County.
“Daniel and Alan have both grown as commercial lenders and as community banking leaders over the past few years,” said Chad Hudson, FNBC Regional President and Chief Lending Officer. “They are passionate about helping their clients succeed and are eager to continue to expand their knowledge and expertise. They are both solid bankers who have a strong career ahead of them. We are fortunate to have Daniel and Alan on the FNBC Bank team and to have them leading and serving in their respected markets.”
