Rauhuff joined First Century Bank last year as Vice President and Regional Manager for the bank’s Knoxville market. With more than 10 years experience in the financial industry, Rauhuff has served in all aspects of banking including loan operations, customer service, lending, and as a branch manager and sales service leader.
“Rex has done an excellent job working with our offices in Knoxville and in Maynardville. In an effort to properly streamline our branch operations, it only makes good business sense to have Rex oversee and coordinate all our branch offices,” said Rob Barger, President of First Century Bank.
