Item 5.07. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

The annual meeting of shareholders of FB Financial Corporation (the “Company”) was held on May 18, 2023. At the annual meeting, the Company’s shareholders elected 11 directors to hold office for one year and until their successors are duly elected and qualified: J. Jonathan Ayers, William F. Carpenter III, Agenia Clark, James W. Cross IV, James L. Exum, Christopher T. Holmes, Orrin H. Ingram, Raja J. Jubran, C. Wright Pinson, Emily J. Reynolds, and Melody J. Sullivan. In addition, at the annual meeting, the shareholders approved on a non-binding, advisory basis, the compensation of our named executive officers. Further, at the annual meeting, the proposal to amend the Company’s charter to eliminate the supermajority voting standards failed to obtain the requisite approval of the holders of 80% of the outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock. Finally, at the annual meeting, the shareholders ratified the appointment of Crowe LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2023. The final voting results are set forth below.

(1) Election of 11 directors to serve until the 2024 annual meeting of shareholders and until their successors have been duly elected and qualified:
