Staff Reports • Updated Jul 29, 2017 at 9:00 PM

Wilson Bank & Trust welcomed lending industry veteran Tonya Strobel as president of the bank’s mortgage division, officials announced recently.

Strobel has nearly 30 years of experience in the mortgage field, the past 15 of them with Wells Fargo Mortgage. Her roles there included regional manager for Colorado, Wyoming and Utah; vice-president of strategic alliances; and area manager for West Tennessee, where she grew a group of 20 lenders to a team of 63 while earning a double-digit market share.

A Middle Tennessee resident for seven years, Strobel previously started new mortgage companies across the U.S. for PNC Bank and Stearns Lending. She has also owned her own mortgage company, First Sovereign Financial, where she served as managing partner.

“We look forward to reaching new levels of service and production under Tonya’s leadership, building on the solid foundation we’ve established over our 30 years as a bank,” said executive vice president John McDearman. “We’re excited about the proven skills she brings to all areas of mortgage, from recruiting talent to improving workflow processes.”

In her new position, which opened following the recent promotion of Amelia Vance to regional president, Strobel will oversee all of Wilson Bank & Trust’s mortgage operations. She will be headquartered at the mortgage center in Lebanon and is also a senior vice president.

Strobel and her husband, Bart, live in Brentwood with their daughter, Mackenzie.

Strobel may be reached at 615-547-5386 or [email protected].

Wilson Bank & Trust, a member of the FDIC and an Equal Housing Lender, is an independent, locally owned bank established in 1987 to provide personal and professional service in a hometown setting. One of the top banks in the South in stability, products, technology, growth and earnings, the bank currently operates 26 full-service offices in eight Middle Tennessee counties, offering a full range of financial products that include secondary market mortgage loans and online and mobile banking services.
