Charlotte Thompson and Jeana Lee Fleming
Having served as bridesmaids 26 times between them, sisters Charlotte Thompson and Jeana Lee Fleming found their business fit when they opened their own boutique, Bella Bridesmaid. Charlotte says bridesmaids' dresses have come a long way from the days of standard-issue taffeta and ruffles. "People always say, 'Sure, you'll be able to wear this dress again,' but for the dresses we carry, that's absolutely true. You'll want to wear it again." Charlotte and Jeana chose First Partners because they want a bank to treat them like they treat each bridesmaid who comes in for a fitting—like someone special. Like a Partner. "We wanted personal service, and they make it super easy to do business with them."
Travis "Trapp" Jones
About five years ago Travis "Trapp" Jones showed up for work one morning and found that his employer had closed shop without bothering to notify the workers. "That's when I decided I really ought to go into business for myself," he remembers. He bought a tow truck and started his own company, Trapp's Towing and Recovery. Today he has seven trucks and tows almost 1,400 cars a month. Trapp chose First Partners because he wants a bank to treat him like he treats each of his stranded customers—like a neighbor. Like a Partner. "They know me by name. When I go in, they'll sit and listen to try and figure out the very best way to help."
