Wilson Bank & Trust Regional President Barry Buckley was among the local honorees who received a Rutherford County Impact Award from the Nashville Business Journal recently.
Buckley, a 39-year veteran in the banking industry and current chairman of the Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors, was presented with the award during a May 21 luncheon at Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro. Nominees selected by the Nashville Business Journal voted on each other to determine the group of award winners.
At Wilson Bank & Trust, Buckley oversees the bank’s Rutherford County operations, which include four full-service offices and a team of secondary market mortgage lenders. Prior to joining Wilson Bank in 2005, Buckley had served as president and founder of other banks in Tennessee.

He became a board member with the Rutherford Chamber in 2010, and is also involved with the Rotary Club and United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties. He earned a business degree from Memphis State University.
