CapStar Announces Richard Stone as Rutherford & Williamson Counties Market President

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CapStar Bank, a subsidiary of CapStar Financial Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSTR), announces the hiring of Richard Stone as Senior Vice President, Rutherford & Williamson Counties Market President, where he will lead business development and customer service initiatives across the region. The Bank currently has two locations (Brentwood and Murfreesboro) and four commercial relationship managers to serve the area and is poised to expand services and recruit additional bankers in 2022 to further deliver its best-in-class banking experience.  

Rutherford and Williamson are consistently recognized among the top three fastest-growing counties in Tennessee, and in the state’s top ten for relocation and job growth.

“With continued emphasis on the dynamic economic growth in Rutherford and Williamson counties, we are thrilled to welcome Richard to our leadership team,” said Tom O’Connor, CapStar’s Middle Tennessee Market President. “CapStar is focused on strategically hiring top talent and delivering an unparalleled level of customer service in a time when many regional banks are losing the ability to offer personalized attention. We are enthusiastic about our prospects as we’ve assembled a strong team of bankers who are not only industry experts, but also understand the unique needs of these communities. Richard’s stellar reputation, energy and extensive experience will be a great addition as he works with our team to further grow our presence in the market.”

“CapStar is one of the most well-regarded and best positioned banks in Tennessee,” said Stone. “I am excited for the opportunity to expand the Bank’s highly responsive and flexible business model across Rutherford and Williamson counties.”
