Tim Pannell
President, CEO, Partner

Look at Tim’s accomplishments in business, his in-depth knowledge of banking, even his golf swing and you learn something fundamental about the founder and leader of FMS: he’s not content with dabbling. With Tim, it’s mastery or nothing. He doesn’t just read one biography on his favorite historical characters—he reads them all. He doesn’t learn enough about banks to just market them—he learns enough to run them.

Tim is a thought-leader in the world of marketing financial services. He speaks around the world, consults with community banks throughout the country and currently serves on the board of the American Bankers Association's Bank Marketing Conference. He is also on the faculty of the Stonier Graduate School of Banking, the LSU Graduate School of Banking and the Virginia Bankers' School of Bank Management.

Passionate about the pursuit of success, Tim gets results for his clients. He creates growth and development for his protégés. And with him at the helm, FMS has become the financial marketing agency that community banks turn to first.
