Dana Nolan, associate director of Investor Relations since 2010 and a 27-year associate of the bank, will succeed him. “List has guided our communications with the investment community expertly through the years, and has provided wise counsel and astute advice that has helped shape the course of our company.

Underwood began his banking career at Liberty National Bank in Louisville, Ky. Nolan, prior to assuming her current role in 2010, held a number of positions at the bank including Wholesale Funding and Liquidity Manager and head of Debt and Capital Management, both in the bank’s Treasury Division. She earned a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and is a graduate of the Bank Administration Institute’s Graduate School of Bank Financial Management at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.
