CapitalMark announces Brandon Deering as the newest addition to a local Banker Team comprised of veteran bankers Mark Feemster and Allison Roberson.

"CapitalMark’s model aligns one dedicated Banker Team to handle all of their banking needs. This long-term, advisory relationship allows Banker Teams to tailor solutions and use timely, local decision-making to provide the ultimate client experience," officials stated.

Mr. Deering graduated Cum Laude from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville with a Bachelor’s of Science degree. Additionally, he attended the Southeastern School of Commercial Lending at Vanderbilt University and Mississippi State University for his Masters of Business Administration with a concentration in Management and Finance.

Joining CapitalMark in March of 2012 as a credit analyst, his areas of expertise include commercial and industrial lending as well as hospitality lending.

Of his new position at CapitalMark, Mr. Deering states, “I’m looking forward to serving clients in a different role along side Mark and Allison. CapitalMark supports their Banker Teams in devoting the time and attention to develop long-term, advisory relationships versus short-term solutions. We are given the tools we need to create a seamless process, enhance the banking experience and offer better quality banking service to clients.”
