Matt Trusty

First Bank - Madison

With over 20 years in banking, Market President Matt Trusty believes that community-based banking allows businesses and the families who run them to thrive. Trusty oversees all of First Bank’s commercial loans in the Madison banking center, where he is responsible for growing a deposit base and, most importantly, developing relationships with members of the community. “As Market President, my job is more than rewarding,” Trusty said. “Every day, I get to say yes to businesses that will boost the economy of this place we call home.”

After graduating from the University of Mississippi as well as the Southeastern School of Advanced Commercial Lending in Nashville, Trusty began his banking career. He joined the ranks at First Bank in 2016, where he served as a branch manager, then vice president and commercial lender. In June of 2020, Trusty was promoted to Market President, a role which allows him to help the community grow. “I’m grateful to be in a position that lets me say yes to enhancing people’s livelihoods and furthering their passions,” Trusty said. “First Bank has a small-town feel. We’re really woven into the community. This is where we live, work, pay taxes, and send our children to school. We have a vested interest in seeing businesses succeed.”

A native of Greenwood, Mississippi, small-town living and banking have always made sense to Trusty. “So many communities live and die based on local banking,” Trusty said. “We want to make sure the community knows we’re its biggest supporter.” In his spare time, Trusty enjoys spending time with his wife, Shelby, and his daughters, Morgan and Mary Alice. An avid trail runner, he also finds fulfillment in long-distance runs in the outdoors. “I try to practice patience and endurance, both in the office and out on the trails,” Trusty said. “I’m in it for the long haul.”
