Bill Vance
First Bank, Rural Markets | NMLS # 586181

An experienced banker with a heart for people, Market President Bill Vance serves Summit and the surrounding community with a tireless dedication to helping people and businesses achieve their dreams. Vance has been with First Bank for over 18 years, and, in his current role as Market President, he enjoys seeing families grow and thrive with First Bank’s support. “I’ve been in the banking business for a long time,” Vance said, “And nothing beats the feeling of knowing I’ve helped somebody take that next step toward success.”

Vance graduated from Mississippi State University with a bachelor’s degree in banking and finance; he then went on to attend and graduate from the University of Mississippi School of Banking and the Louisiana State University Graduate School of Banking. Since the beginning of his career, Vance has known that local banking can make a difference in the community. “Local bankers helped me and my family when I was young,” Vance said, “I knew that I could help other families and businesses if I went into banking, so that’s what I did. It has been more rewarding than I ever could have imagined.”

A dedicated family man, Vance appreciates the family atmosphere that First Bank provides its customers and staff. “To me, nothing is more important than family,” Vance said, “And at First Bank, that’s exactly what we are: a family. We try to treat our people how they deserve to be treated, which means we go the extra mile to help them succeed.” Outside of the office, Vance can be found at home with his wife, Paula, or spending time with his sons, Will and Josh, or his grandchildren, Conner and Claudia (CC).
