Donald E. Moser Honored By Tennessee Bankers Association

Old Hickory Native Among Elite Group Selected as Leaders in Banking Excellence

NASHVILLE – Donald E. Moser has been named a Leader in Banking Excellence. The Tennessee Bankers Association will display a plaque in his honor at the TBA’s headquarters building in Nashville.


Moser, who serves as chairman of the board of Peoples Bank of Bedford County in Shelbyville and is a member of the board of directors of CedarStone Bank in Lebanon, is among an elite group representing Tennessee bankers past and present who excelled in banking, community service and civic involvement.

Moser began his banking career as a vice president of Murfreesboro Bank and Trust in 1957 and later served as president of Citizens Central Bank. He served as regional president of MidSouth Bank in Carthage and Winchester from 1984 to 1986, and SunTrust Bank in Murfreesboro from 1986 to 1995. Moser was appointed president and CEO of Peoples Bank of Bedford County in 2000.

“This honor is a reflection of Don’s commitment to both the banks he was affiliated with and the communities they served,” said TBA president Brad Barrett. “The industry continues to benefit from his knowledge and experience through his board service.”

Moser is an active member of First United Methodist Church in Murfreesboro. He is a
past president of the Chamber of Commerce and the Lions Club.

Leaders in Banking Excellence is an initiative by the TBA to recognize and celebrate exceptional bankers throughout Tennessee’s history, Barrett said. A special plaque commemorating each honoree is displayed in the association’s headquarters building in Nashville.

All TBA-member banks can submit nominations for the honor, and applications are reviewed by TBA staff and board members, who make the selections. Moser was nominated by his family and by colleague Bruce Plummer.

“One of the main missions of the Tennessee Bankers Association is to encourage our members to be involved in making our industry better and in making their communities better places to work and live,” Barrett said. “The Leaders in Banking Excellence recognizes those who have made a difference, and we hope it will be an inspiration to other bankers across the state.”
