Board of Directors

Kevin Anderson

Kevin Anderson

President

Kevin Anderson’s formative years were spent on a dairy farm in rural Middle Tennessee where
the field was the place where the food was grown for the largest contributors to the Anderson
family’s livelihood, the dairy cattle. He learned the importance of the preparation of the ground,
the planting of the right seed and ultimately, patience.

After coming to know Christ in high school, Kevin went on to college and the book-field, selling
books door-to-door for Varsity Corporation/Thomas Nelson, in the Texas heat. This field made
him the man he is and the seeds of a career were planted.

Kevin moved on to the retail field where he learned how to cultivate profits by increasing
customer satisfaction and cutting expenses. He began learning the importance of pouring into
people and “raising up” leaders, and met his wife of 27 years, Stephanie. Together they began
growing children-two boys, two girls and four beautiful grandchildren to add to the crop!
The next natural step is where Kevin finds himself today. Over the last 23 years Kevin has
consulted numerous business owners, hired and trained several high-performance sales
leaders, launched two radio stations, coached hundreds of entrepreneurs and is now the proud
leader of a team of marketing consultants, radio and publishing professionals where he holds
the dual position of General Sales Manager and General Manager.

Ben Lawson

Ben Lawson

Ben is a graduate of Columbia International University in South Carolina where he received his
B.S. in Bible and a B.S. in Church Ministries. As a Loan Originator he is passionate about
service. “Purchasing a home will be one of the largest purchases you will ever make in your life.
I want to be the one to make this process as smooth as possible. The level of customer service I
offer is the one component of the mortgage journey I can control and I take that very seriously.
Having been a customer of iServe Residential Lending I can summarize that experience in 5
words – “They took care of me.”  While mortgages is his career, his passion is teaching the Bible
and evangelism and he volunteers in arenas that allow him to pursue those passions.
When he is not working on mortgage loans he enjoys spending time with his wife, watching
soccer, and hockey. Ben has been involved with the Chamber since its founding and has fond
memories of those early days. He and his wife have 5 daughters, all of whom he is very proud.

Debbie Trombley

Debbie Trombley

A native Nashvillian and former corporate America statistic, Debbie found her calling in 1994 as an entrepreneur. It was by default, not design, that she discovered the non-traditional way of earning a salary through the business model known as “network marketing”. Because supplemental income was a necessity in ’94 to offset a child’s college tuition, little did Debbie know that in 1999 she would forego tradition by working from home as a full-time entrepreneur.

Selling was never an attraction for her but Debbie’s love of people meant she was extremely qualified to share information with others if she believed her knowledge would be beneficial to them. Throughout her years as a “Hope Broker,” Debbie has put relationships first and the sale second or, many times, non-existent.

In 2011 Debbie entered into a distributorship with a company called It Works Global, known in 22 countries for its signature product, the Ultimate Body Applicator (aka the Crazy Wrap Thing). Today the company represents a complete line of plant-based, health and wellness products ranging from essential oils, weight loss, colon cleanse, protein shakes, skincare and keto-based.

Though a top leader with her company and a product of her products, Debbie is all about information being given about how finding the right multi-vitamin or alkalizing powder can be life changing. Her goal is to equip you with supplement knowledge for your personal research and due diligence.

Greg Bancroft

Greg Bancroft

Greg has held many diverse (and sometimes overlapping) roles throughout his long career: Episcopal priest, pastoral counselor, adjunct professor, Navy Chaplain, corporate trainer, community engagement leader, as well as holding various sales and marketing positions within Fortune 500 companies. He grew up working with his dad and grandfather in the family’s hardware store in Stillwater, Minnesota (a small farming community). He holds degrees from the University of Minnesota, Yale University, and Luther Seminary.

His passion is baseball, from playing, to watching, to writing about it. His children’s book, Betsy’s Day at the Game, illustrated by Disney illustrator Katherine Blackmore, is a Mom’s Choice (Gold) Award-winning book. His second book, Swing for the Fences: Show up, Dig in, Suck less, is off to a great start – having just been published a few months ago. (Both are available for sale today – you may want to edit this in some fashion).

Greg and his wife of 43 years, Sally, moved to Nashville a little over two years ago to form a three-generation family. They live under one roof with their daughter, son-in-law, two children, three cats and a German Shepherd the size of a small truck in Bellevue on land that was once used for rescuing horses. This is their 23rd address. Son, Peter, and his family live in Boston. Sally is a full-time Mormor, a Swedish word for “grandmother;” Greg recently retired from the corporate world.

Through the years, Greg has witnessed people struggle with a need to be perfect. Striving to “measure up,” “be good enough,” or “deserve” their accomplishments has created a sense of shame in many people. Bringing out the best in others and helping them become the people they already are in the eyes of God is central to his life’s mission as well as essential for overcoming toxic shame. He hopes that his latest book and speaking will enable people to recover their identity as a child of God and live healthier, happier lives.
