Ed Theis has joined the team at INSBANK, a Nashville-based community bank, as vice president and relationship manager. In his new role, Theis will lead INSBANK’s expansion into the music industry while maintaining primarily commercial client relationships and generating new relationships for the bank.
“INSBANK continues to grow its commercial base of business and often intersects with clients in the music industry, so it made sense for us to add a relationship manager dedicated to serving and growing that sector,” said Jim Rieniets, president and CEO of INSBANK. “Ed’s previous work in the entertainment and sports industries primes INSBANK to cultivate opportunities in this market, and our established client-focused philosophy is what these clients seek. On the heels of INSBANK’s best year ever in terms of earnings, we’re very excited to bring Ed on board to help our bank continue expanding.”
Theis brings more than two decades of experience in client relationship management within the banking and financial industry. Prior to joining growing INSBANK, Theis was a vice president and client advisor in the sports and entertainment specialty group at SunTrust. He has also served as vice president and relationship manager at Fifth Third Bank.
An active member of the Nashville community, Theis is a board member of the Miller Harris Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to raising asthma awareness and funding asthma education and research programs. He’s also on the advisory board for Junior Achievement, a volunteer at My Friends House and an alum of Leadership Music (class of 2001).
