NADCO is sad to report of the recent passing of Tom McAuley former Director of Mid Cumberland Area Development Corporation in Nashville TN. Tom was born in Memphis, TN and graduated from David Lipscomb College in Nashville. Tom was married to the late Joy Bryson McAuley who preceded him in death in August 2011 and had two sons, Tim and Tommy.
After graduating from Lipscomb College Tom worked for over 40 years in the field of banking and finance. He spent several years with local Nashville area banks as well as with a CDC in Chattanooga TN from 1989 to 1994. In July 1994 Tom joined Mid Cumberland Area Development Corporation where he served as the Director up to his retirement in May 2013.
Well known to many in the CDC industry, Tom was a strong supporter of NADCO and the SBA 504 loan program attending many of the NADCO annual meetings and regional conferences. He was a great fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide, enjoyed a round of golf with his friends and spending time with his family and grandchildren. His love of music and singing was evident by his numerous karaoke performances where he entertained many. Tom will forever be remembered for his strength and will be missed by all who knew him.
