Murfreesboro Community President | 615.494.4200

As the Community President of First National Bank, Clay Shirley’s primary mission in serving Rutherford County is to help people and companies achieve their financial dreams. He is appreciative to Rutherford County for being so good to his family.

As a Rutherford County native, Clay appreciates the growth Murfreesboro has experienced, all the while maintaining a small-town feel. His family, wife, Beth and daughters, Ellie, 15, and Anna Clay, 11, are active members at North Boulevard Church of Christ. They are avid supporters of Middle Tennessee Christian School. The girls attend school there, and Clay serves as a Trustee. Clay has served on the Boys and Girls Clubs of Rutherford County Board of Directors for the past eight years, and held the Board Chair position in 2016. Clay loves being with First National Bank, where “we still offer true community banking.” He feels passionate about knowing his clients and their interests.

He is able to focus on building relationships with his clients so they know they can call at any time and he will take care of their needs. “It is not all about business all the time, it is about truly caring about our clients and in the process, they become friends.”
