Two high-producing mortgage loan officers have been promoted to vice president by First National Bank of McMinnville, bank president Pieter van Vurren announced.
Dave Gober and Carrie Graff were promoted to vice president at the January meeting of the bank's board of directors.
Both are members of FNB Mortgage, a department of First National Bank of McMinnville. Gober is sales manager and located in the Murfreesboro office while Graff is in the Shelbyville office.
The pair were recognized earlier this month as top producers for FNB Mortgage in 2013, a record year for the bank unit. Gober was honored for dollar volume, Graff for number of loans closed.
"Our Board of Directors see Carrie and Dave as extremely hard-working individuals who excel at what they do on a daily basis. It has been our philosophy, as a Board, to reward employees that perform beyond expectation and therefore has recognized them with these well-deserved promotions," van Vuuren said.
Gober joined FNB Mortgage in 2012, Graff in 2011.
Gober offers 14 years of award-winning mortgage experience and 22 years in finance. His office is in FNB Mortgage's main office on the third floor of the Waterstone Building at 1608 Williams Drive.
“My focus is to grow the business, the name, FNB Mortgage,” he said. ‘Being here all my life I want to provide a service they can’t get anywhere else by building a great team here.
“We make decisions right here. It’s about the relationship with us, and our customers will get more effort out of us than anywhere else,” the Oakland and MTSU graduate added.
Gober is married to Shari Gober and has four children, Zach, Rian, Abby and Megan.

Graff noted potential homebuyers or homeowners considering a new home should realize mortgage rates remain low and a great investment opportunity.
"We still have our government programs with 100 percent financing here in Bedford County for those who qualify," she noted, pointing out that rumors to the contrary are untrue.
A graduate of Shelbyville Central who attended Middle Tennessee State University, Graff is married to John Graff, a sections manager at Nissan, and has two sons, Dylan Parker Sain, 20, a farmer, and Aaron Sanders Graff, 5, a student at Barnyard Kids.
