Sevierville, Tenn. – Sevierville native, Claude N. Huff Jr. recently joined the Sevier County Bank staff, a bank where members of his family have been stockholders and customers since 1909. A graduate of Sevier County High School, Huff brings more than 33 years of experience in the banking and financial industry to his new position as senior vice president with the bank.
Shortly after receiving a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Tennessee Technology University in Cookeville, Huff spent two years in the mid 1970s with Sevier County Bank in a management training program.
