To start, there will be five employees on site. Tallassee native Barry Parker will be the branch manager. Parker has had a long relationship with First Community Bank.
"My dad decided he was ready to retire. I walked in and told them I needed a job," Parker said.
"There's very little difference," Parker said of the car business compared to banking. "You're dealing with people. You want to make them happy and be accessible when they need you."
Parker began training on April 1 with the bank. He's ready to get going in Tallassee.
"Working right beside where you grew up and played football is pretty neat," Parker said. "It's real exciting for me to be coming back."
Parker said plans are to open shortly after Christmas.
