First Tennessee Hires Andrew Kintz to Lead New Music Industry Banking Group
In his new role, Kintz will spearhead a new strategy focused on music industry businesses and individuals
First Tennessee Bank announced that Andrew Kintz, the leading banker on Music Row, has joined the bank to establish its first dedicated music industry banking group. Kintz will report directly to Carol Yochem, president of First Tennessee's Middle Tennessee region, and will be located at the bank's Music Row offices. In his new role, Kintz will spearhead a new strategy focused on music industry businesses and individuals, including publishers, management firms, agencies, labels, producers, artists, songwriters, attorneys and other music industry centers of influence - both locally and nationally.
Kintz brings with him nearly two decades of experience in commercial banking and wealth management, and comes to First Tennessee from SunTrust Bank, where he led the music division in its sports and entertainment specialty group since 2009 - taking the reins from Brian Williams, who founded the group and was arguably the most influential banker on Music Row when he died in an accident in 2006. During his tenure with the group, Kintz doubled the group's gross revenue and was a leading managing director in SunTrust for revenue growth, new clients, loan and deposit growth. Prior to his work in the music division, Kintz advised high net worth individuals and companies in both the private wealth management and commercial banking divisions of the bank.
Kintz is deeply involved in community and professional organizations, serving on the Boards of Nashville Public Radio, Columbia Theological Seminary, and The Atlanta Resource Foundation. He has also served on the Boards of WO Smith and Leadership Music, where he remains involved in committee work. In addition, Kintz also supports the local alumni chapters of W&L and UGA's Terry college. He is a member of the CMA, NSAI (where he was recently honored with the Stephen Foster Institutional Award for supporting the efforts of NSAI and the songwriter community), NARAS, the Country Music Hall of Fame Honor Society, and AIMP. And this year, Kintz was named one of Nashville's "40 Under 40" by the Nashville Business Journal.
