Congratulations to Amy Larrison. Amy was recently promoted to Vice President/Regional Branch Sales Manager for First Bank. Amy looks forward to developing this newly created position with the bank. In her new role, Amy will manage the sales teams in all branches of the organization, standardize processes and oversee business development.
Prior to coming to First Bank, Amy was the Marketing Director at the Shelby Medical Center. She also served as the Executive Director of the Shelby County Drug Free Coalition where she led the board and members in obtaining grant funding. The grants allowed the board to expand Amy’s position to full-time and hire a coordinator to further the mission and objectives of the Coalition.
When her three children were in school, Amy was active with the Waldron Elementary and Jr./Sr. High School PTO and Booster Club, Little League and the Blue River Soccer Association. An avid cyclist, Amy became a certified cycling instructor in 2007. She teaches fitness classes at the Shelby County Athletic Club. She also enjoys gardening and loves spending time with her 10-month old granddaughter.
Amy currently serves on the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and the Leadership Shelby County Board. Amy has also served on the Major Hospital Foundation Annual Support Committee and the Shelby County Players Board of Directors. She is involved with Habitat for Humanity, MIBOR and the Shelby County Builders Association.
A leadership graduate, Amy is very passionate about the program. In 2009, during her tenure as Executive Director of the Shelby County Drug Free Coalition, Amy participated in Leadership Shelby County. The following year, she went on to serve on the leadership board.
When the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce decided to relaunch the program, Amy was one of those who facilitated the connections between members of the previous board and the new Leadership Shelby County board. She is still amazed at how the program has grown from an all-volunteer board to paid staff members with substantial support from the Chamber of Commerce. As Amy prepares to change gears and work in the First Bank headquarters in Richmond, Indiana, she has the challenge of finding her replacement. She is looking for someone who will build relationships in the community. She is seeking someone who has experience in sales and marketing and who will focus on business development and relationship management. Those are skills that Amy uses in her current position and will continue to use in her new role with First Bank. And first on Amy’s agenda for her replacement is participation in Leadership Shelby County. We wish you the best, Amy.
