First Community Bank has announced that Debra Taylor has been promoted to senior vice president, commercial lender. A longtime banker, Taylor joined First Community Bank in 2013 and she has been in the banking industry since 1987. In her lending role, Taylor is responsible for producing a variety of commercial loans as well as generating and managing a portfolio of business relationships.

“We are very proud of Debra for her well-deserved promotion,” said Allen Williams, executive vice president, market president for the Jonesboro region of First Community Bank. “She capitalizes on exceptional service and has always had an unwavering dedication to helping our customers achieve their financial goals.”
