Belmont alumnus Adam Robertson has been promoted to the president of Commercial Bank.

Moving from the position of vice president, Robertson has worked for Commercial Bank of over 14 years, formally serving as a teller, then a loan officer, branch manager and executive officer.

“I appreciate the chance to lead the bank to future success and follow in the footsteps of my grandfather and Commercial Bank founder, E. Oscar Robertson,” Robertson said. “We will go forward with our tradition of banking excellence as well as service to our customers and the community.”

Terry Lee has served as president and chief executive officer since 2004 and is proud to be handing over the duties of president.

“Adam is one of the brightest and best young men I have ever known, and he is very deserving of this promotion,” said Lee. “As the Bank’s CEO, I am looking forward to working more closely with Adam and mentoring him in this new role.”

Robertson’s community involvement includes leadership roles in the Bell County Chamber of Commerce, Pine Mountain Community Development Corporation, Harrogate Little League and Outdoor Truths Ministries. Robertson graduated from Belmont University and the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University. He and his wife, Cindi, have two children, Olivia and Noah, and they reside in Speedwell, Tenn. They are members of Pump Springs Baptist Church.
