NEWPORT-After 46 in the banking business, Keith Ketterman
Ketterman, President, Chairman, and Chief Executive
Officer of National Bank of Tennessee and NBN Corporation, retired April 30.
Ketterman began his banking career in 1967 at First
American National Bank in Nashville and Knoxville.
His move to Newport came in 1984 when he joined
then-National Bank of Newport (now Tennessee) as Executive Vice-President. He
was named Director in 1986 and President and CEO in 1987.
On Friday morning, Ketterman said his opportunity to come
to Newport came when First American sold out. "I had two choices,"
said Ketterman, "to go back to Nashville or elsewhere. I didn't want to go
back to Nashville. A friend of mine, who happened to be a friend of Dr. Fred
Valentine, Jr., told him about me."
