Marty Haynes, Hamilton County Assessor of Property, was awarded the 2019 Leadership Award from the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers during the TNAAO Annual Winter Meeting. The award was presented by Brad Coleman, 2019 TNAAO president, and Will Denami, TNAAO executive director. 

Mr. Coleman said, “The Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers proudly recognizes Marty Haynes for actively seeking to promote professionalism, service and leadership, representing Hamilton County and the assessment profession in Tennessee and grant him this 2019 Leadership Award.”

Mr. Denami said, “Marty had big shoes to fill when he became Property Assessor in Hamilton County, following Bill Bennett’s retirement. Marty Haynes stepped up and took an active role in helping to improve the greenbelt program and to create efficiency on behalf of taxpayers in the administrative process. Marty has exhibited strong leadership in encouraging professional development in his office. Seven different appraisers have earned professional designations since he was elected. He has also improved the technology in his office as well. Marty has demonstrated a willingness to actually make improvements when he sees problems and it is fitting he is recognized for his leadership. The 2019 Leadership Award follows his 2018 East TN Assessor of the Year Award.”

“Well, I did not expect to receive this award, I just thought I was doing my job or what I would expect anyone else to do," said Mr. Haynes. "When you see a problem, fix it. I truly enjoy serving as the Assessor of Property and I try to make the process better for everyone my office comes in contact with. When we see an opportunity for efficiency, we will try to make the improvement every time. The citizens of Hamilton County have humbled me with the opportunity to serve and I will continue to do the best I can on their behalf.” 

The Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers is a professional organization composed of the elected officials serving as Assessors of Property in Tennessee. The TNAAO's purpose is to work on behalf of the people of our great state to ensure fairness and uniformity in statutes regarding the assessment of property, as well as, to promote excellence through best practices and professionalism amongst those charged with this vital task.
