Lynn Cook’s father owned a heating and air company, her mother owned a local furniture store, her husband is a building developer and contractor, and her son owns and operates a dumpster rental company. Needless to say, her family tree includes a long line of business entrepreneurs who have taught her about the complicated and ever-changing needs of a business owner.

She has particular expertise working with companies in the manufacturing and service industries and also works with commercial real estate investors seeking to acquire, improve, or refinance investment-grade properties.
Some of her recent transactions include a $5.0MM real estate loan with a hedge to lock in longer term financing; a $12MM operating line of credit; a $19MM construction transaction for the expansion of an educational facility in Western North Carolina, and more than $25MM in credit facilities with a regional franchisee in the food and beverage industry.
She began her commercial banking career in the early 2000s and joined HomeTrust as a Relationship Manager in 2017.
