NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mike Michael, group regional president of Fifth Third Bank, today announced that Atlanta regional president Hal Clemmer has been named regional president of Fifth Third Bank (Tennessee), effective immediately.
Clemmer has served as president of the Georgia region since 2015. His Nashville appointment marks a return of sorts for him, as he was head of Large Corporate Banking and also served as senior corporate banker there from 2010 to 2015. Prior to joining Fifth Third in 2010, Clemmer enjoyed a more than 20-year career in commercial banking, including leadership roles at SouthTrust/Wachovia/Wells Fargo, serving in a number of major southeast markets.
“I am pleased that Hal has agreed to return to Nashville and take on this new challenge, leading one of the Bank’s fastest-growing markets,” Michael said. “His existing familiarity with this market means that he will hit the ground running, and his demonstrated leadership will benefit both the Bank and the community.”
Clemmer added, “I am excited about the opportunity to rejoin the Tennessee team, and am looking forward to making a difference here, building on Fifth Third’s momentum.”
While in the Nashville area previously, Clemmer served as a board member for the United Way of Williamson County in Brentwood.
Clemmer holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Auburn University and a master’s degree in Business Administration from Samford University.
Clemmer succeeds Donald Abel Jr., who has made the decision to leave the Bank to pursue other opportunities. Abel said, “I have enjoyed my career at Fifth Third, and I am confident in Fifth Third’s continued success in the Nashville market. Michael said, “I appreciate Don’s numerous contributions, and I wish him well in his future endeavors.”
