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.

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.
