Tammy DosserAll employers love a person who is eager to do more than what is required of them, is continually surpassing expectations and happily takes on any task or project – regardless of how difficult it may be.  This month’s Star was nominated for this level of commitment and passion for their job.  Congratulations go to Tammy Dosser, Loan Document Specialist, on her selection as our August Star of the Month.

Tammy joined the team in the Central Loan Document (CLD) department in Whitehouse in 2016 following an 18 year career with Austin Bank’s sister bank, First State Bank, Athens.  Austin Bank Director and FSB Athens CEO, Michael Neill, shares that Tammy was known for ‘getting things done’ in her role as a Loan Specialist while at FSB.  “She was a hard worker who stayed focused on the task at hand and worked all day at a steady pace,” he commented.  The experience she garnered in lending and real estate transactions is utilized now in her role as the Team Lead for Loan Document processors.  She currently oversees the workflow and duties of the processing team and is the go-to source when there are real estate compliance questions.  Dustin Beavers, Relationship Manager in Nacogdoches, remarked, “Tammy has gone out of her way multiple times to help me learn and grow as a lender.  She explains the entire process and is always fast and accurate.”

During recent pandemic events, Tammy earned additional respect and admiration from her supervisors while making sacrifices for the betterment of her team and serving countless hours to assist with the new processes required for the deluge of PPP loans.  Not afraid of hard work, she toiled long hours until the project was finished and saw it through to completion.

Tammy and her son, Trenton, live in Athens.  She enjoys camping in her RV, hunting and travelling across the country.


“Tammy has been my life raft since I took the reins at CLD.  She is energetic, approachable and a straight shooter.  She has stepped up and stepped in without my asking and has been so supportive and encouraging.”

Lora Hammond, SVP/CLD, Loan Ops and Mortgage Manager, Whitehouse

“Tammy is such an incredible asset to CLD, and it is an absolute pleasure working beside her every day!”

Kenny Stuth, CLD Assistant Manager, Whitehouse

“I worked closely with Tammy throughout her 18 year career at FSB Athens.  While we miss her there, we are proud of her for receiving this well-deserved recognition at Austin Bank.”

Michael Neill, CEO of First State Bank, Athens and Austin Bank Director

“With Tammy’s extensive loan and compliance knowledge, she is a great resource when I need to bounce an idea or need help with a software.  She is always excited to take on new challenges and gives 100% at all times.  She is a vital part of Austin Bank as it continues to cultivate loan growth.”

Shirley Coe, SVP/Senior Loan Systems Administrator, Whitehouse
