-Yolanda S. Greene, Rutherford County Market President, First Horizon Bank

As a CEO, I have found Murfreesboro an “easy sell” for recruiting top talent from across the Southeast due to its low cost of living, array of amenities, and close proximity to Nashville. As a relative newcomer to Rutherford County, I have been exceptionally impressed by the warm hospitality of the people and the breathtaking natural beauty that Middle Tennessee offers.

The Chamber assisted us in locating the best site, securing [incentives], and, on a very personal level, meeting with all employee families interested in relocating.
