UNION CITY, TN. Forty years ago, Sharon Winsett began her career in banking at the former Old & Third National Bank. She worked in what was called the “note window,” where she took payments and posted them manually on the back of notes before putting them into the computer. She went on to become a secretary and then an administrative assistant before assuming her role as a Loan Officer in 1985. Old & Third National Bank eventually became Commercial Bank and Trust Company (CBTC), but Sharon continued her work with the bank.

“I have seen many changes in banking and been through many transitions,” said Ms. Winsett. “From government regulations to the way customers handle their business, banking is different now than it was when I started to work. Technology has had a major impact on the banking industry.”
