Franklin Synergy Bank Tops $400 Million in Deposits

Franklin, TN - December 28, 2011 - Franklin Synergy Bank capped its fourth anniversary by crossing the $400 million mark in bank deposits. The bank reached this milestone on December 16.

“Just a year ago, our bank passed the $300 million mark in deposits. This month brings another wonderful anniversary present for our shareholders, customers and staff,” commented Richard Herrington, president of Franklin Synergy Bank. "This is extraordinary success for a four year old bank. It’s a direct reflection of our wide-spread neighborhood support and the impact our bank is making in the community. We have worked very diligently to create a unique banking environment that makes our customers feel comfortable and confident.”

Franklin Synergy opened its third office in 2010, in what is now a full-service branch in Brentwood.

“When we opened in late 2007, we were the smallest of 187 banks headquartered in Tennessee. As we near the end of 2011, Franklin Synergy has grown to be among the 35 largest banks in Tennessee,” added Herrington. “Our deposit growth has outpaced loan growth. While our loan portfolio continues to grow, we are actively seeking loan opportunities in the community.”
