NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CapStar Bank, a subsidiary of CapStar Financial Holdings (NASDAQ: CSTR), today announced the hiring of Tom O’Connor as Middle Tennessee Market President where he will lead business development and customer service in the greater Nashville metropolitan area. The bank currently has six locations, 13 commercial relationship managers, and two wealth advisors across the region and is poised to expand services and hire more talent in 2021 to further deliver its best-in-class banking experience. Concurrently, Ken Webb has been named Chairman of Middle Tennessee with responsibility over the bank’s Middle Tennessee, Southeast and South Central regions.  

“We are excited to be a Nashville based organization and are thrilled to welcome Tom to our team,” said Timothy K.
