Studio Bank has announced the expansion of its Music Arts & Entertainment Team, adding veteran industry bankers to a team with a significant national and international client base.
Kari Barnhart joins Studio Bank’s entertainment team as a Senior Vice President. Barnhart has an extensive background in music business banking, most recently at Regions Bank. She has held multiple leadership positions in industry trade organizations and is currently involved in SOURCE, Copyright Society of the South, and the Troubadour Society.
Additionally, Eunice Hernandez joins Studio Bank as a Relationship Manager. She was previously part of Regions Bank’s music industry team, as well.
Barnhart and Hernandez join Darryl Williams to round out the Music Arts & Entertainment team led by Ron Cox, who says Studio Bank’s Music Arts & Entertainment vertical contributes 20% of the bank’s overall business and serves creators not only in Nashville but in other entertainment industry hubs including New York, Los Angeles, and London.
“Studio’s commitment to serving creators is not only an important component of our business model, but it is also a key cornerstone of our brand and why we exist,” Cox says. “The attraction to Studio’s creative and boutique style of banking has been tremendous, and having Kari and Eunice join our team will contribute greatly to the significant growth and momentum that we are experiencing.”
