George M. Clark Jr., longtime leader at Chattanoogas former Pioneer Bank, died Thursday night.
Mr. Clark had been chairman and chief executive officer of the bank.
Pioneer, which had been a Chattanooga-based bank, was sold in 1998 to First American of Nashville. Later First American was acquired by AmSouth.
Mr. Clark had taken on the leadership of Pioneer by following in the footsteps of his father, who also led the bank for a number of years.
