Wade Hinton

Wade Hinton has been elected a Fellow of the Tennessee Bar Foundation, an association of 868 attorneys across the state.  The Board of Trustees extended invitations to membership, which is a position of honor, to 24 attorneys this year.  The introduction of new Fellows took place earlier this year at the annual Fellows' Dinner in Nashville.  

The Bar Foundation's purpose is two-fold: to honor attorneys who have distinguished themselves in the profession and community and to administer a grant-making program.  That project, known by its acronym “IOLTA” (Interest On Lawyers' Trust Accounts), has awarded grants in excess of $22,000,000 to law-related, public interest projects throughout Tennessee.

Mr. Hinton is a graduate of Emory University and The University of Memphis School of Law.  He also studied at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary.  He currently serves as vice-president of Inclusion and Diversity for the Unum Group. 

Mr. Hinton, who serves on the boards of several nonprofit organizations, is the former city attorney for Chattanooga and deputy general counsel for Volkswagen Chattanooga.
