Welcome to the Franklin Financial Network July 2010 eBulletin!
June 22, 2010 was another remarkable day for Franklin Synergy Bank
. It was the Grand Opening of our new Downtown Franklin office and a day of celebration for our bank and the progress we have made. Thanks to all of our many customers, shareholders, and friends who helped us celebrate this special occasion.
It is sometimes difficult to realize that we opened our bank less than three years ago on November 7, 2007. That seems so long ago, but it’s actually not quite three years. Since we opened our initial office in Cool Springs, we have added a branch in Franklin and a mortgage office in Brentwood. Our staff has increased from 26 in November 2007 to 71 today. Our assets have risen to $300 million, and, most importantly, we have become a locally owned, locally managed true community bank in the eyes of the community.
We have not accomplished this on our own; we have benefitted from the strong reinforcement of our local community, our shareholders, our neighbors, and our friends. We are always appreciative of this support.
As we have grown our bank, we have taken the opportunity to recognize special members of our community who have been especially supportive of our bank and been terrific ambassadors for us. In the past, we have recognized Paul Pratt, Sr., Larry Westbrook, Sr., and Bill Harlin as members of our “Wall of Fame”. At our Grand Opening, we added another special friend to this recognition: Cheryl Wilson. There is no way to accurately express the many, many ways that these four friends have helped us during our days as a new bank.
Dr. Monty McInturff represented the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce
in leading the ribbon cutting ceremony. It was an honor for Dr. McInturff to lead this ceremony as he was one of our first customers. He shared interesting insight that had our bank existed centuries ago, Andrew Jackson would have been a customer!
While the focus of the day was celebrating the bank, we did take time to recognize the devastating effects of the May flood on many of our neighbors here in Williamson County. We presented a significant gift to Graceworks Ministries
that represented personal contributions from our employees and Board members as well as a matching gift from the bank.
On behalf of our Board of Directors and management team, thank you for your support of our bank. We are proud of our success, and we are humbled by the many, many friends and neighbors who have been a significant part of this success.
