Progressive Savings Bank
Mark Justice Thursday April 20, 2017

Following the recent passing of Progressive Savings Bank CEO Steve Rains on Monday, CFO, Gary Hicks has moved into the CEO position. Another long-time peer, Scott Edwards, is stepping forward as chairman of the PSB Board of Directors. Progressive Savings Bank has six branches with assets totaling more than $280 million. From the original Rains Insurance Agency, the bank and its branches, the operation has added subsidiaries, including Cravens and Company Advisors, LLC, as well as the Rains Foundation Charities. The Rains family has always been fiercely proud that the operation is independent and locally owned. Most of the current management team members have been with PSB for 30 years or more. That includes community presidents Karen Cole, who runs the three Cumberland County branches, and John Davis, who manages the Wartburg branch. PSB Community President Cole said the banks have flourished because of the Rains family's vision. "This company's vision didn't end with Lyndon and it won't end with Steve," Cole said. "We know what they wanted, and we want it too. The foundation of the company has not changed."

Shoney’s Data Breach
Peg Broadcasting News Thursday April 20, 2017

Shoney’s Restaurant chain is the latest victim of a data breach. Best American Hospitality Corp. says malware had been installed remotely on a point of sale equipment that processed credit cards used at some Shoney’s restaurants in Tennessee and at least 9 other states in the South and Midwest. This affects anyone who used a debit or credit card at Shoney’s between December 27 and March 6. The company released a list of breached stores and while the Crossville Shoney’s was not on that list, the store at 880 South Jefferson Avenue in Cookeville was breached. At least 11 locations across Tennessee were also hacked. So, if you’ve eaten at a Shoney’s Restaurant lately, you should check your bank accounts and credit card statements. You should immediately report any unauthorized charges to your card issuer because payment card rules generally provide that cardholders are not responsible for unauthorized charges reported in a timely manner. It is also advisable to check your credit report with credit bureaus including Equifax, Transunion and Experian, which offer free credit reports annually. You can also obtain a free credit report at https://www.annualcreditreport.com.
