July 2011 E-News Bulletin

Welcome to the Franklin Financial Network July2011 eBulletin!

Dear Friends,

Our world is changing faster every day. New products, new ways of doing business and new opportunities appear daily. At Franklin Synergy, we do our best to offer you the finest banking products and services available; and we like to be first to offer unsurpassed banking in our market.

While banking today is much different than it was just a few years ago, the primary difference lies in how our customers access our bank. We still offer the same great service whether you come into one of our branches or you work with us over the internet. It's a challenge to include a personal touch in internet banking; we accomplish that by introducing you personally to changes and updates to our internet banking. Rather than simply announcing new products and services on our website, we like to personally tell you about changes, so you understand the thought process behind all of our products and services.

Today, we're announcing some new iPhone Mobile Franklin Synergy apps, currently available to our customers. Using the FSB iPhone Mobile Internet Banking app, you can check your account balances, transaction history, view check images, transfer funds between accounts, and make loan payments as well as other features through your Apple Mobile devices. If you are currently an internet banking customer, there is no separate enrollment, just download the free app from the iTunes App Store. Our new iPhone application uses the same UserID/Password/Security Questions you established for internet banking.

In addition, our new FSB Mobile Easy Deposit allows you to securely deposit checks into any FSB account. It's the same great product we currently offer to customers using their home or office flatbed scanners, except now you can use your iPhone to snap photos of your checks and deposit them into your accounts.

Nick Lennon, our Internet Branch Manager is available to offer support and answer any question you may have about any of our products. Let us know what you think of our new FSB Mobile apps; we'd like to hear your thoughts.

Our growth and success are products of the support of our local community, our shareholders, and our friends. Thank you for your support and patronage.

Richard Herrington

Franklin Synergy Sponsors Franklin Rodeo Prize

Franklin Synergy Sponsors Franklin Rodeo Prize

Randy Kelly, President of the Middle Tennessee Trustees’ Association presents the Spirit of the Rodeo prize to Kate, Paul, Houston and Taylor Batey. Kelly serves as Trustee of Franklin County. Trustees from counties all over Tennessee attended this year’s rodeo. The prize, awarded to the children of Rutherford County Trustee, Teb Batey and his wife Kari, was sponsored by Franklin Synergy Bank, in coordination with the Williamson County Trustee’s office. The prize honors the Tennessee Trustee or family members who best exemplified the spirit of the Franklin Rodeo and who dressed the part. Pictured with Randy Kelly are (l to r) Kate Batey, Paul Batey, Houston Batey and Taylor Batey.

We’re delighted to help the Tennessee County Trustees’ Association and local Williamson County Trustee Joey Davis celebrate the Spirit of the Franklin Rodeo with this prize. We congratulate the Batey children and their family members as well as MTTA President Randy Kelly and would like to express our appreciation to the Trustees who attended the Franklin Rodeo from all over Tennessee.

Ben Climer, (center, pictured with Franklin Synergy’s Al Dorsey and Independence High’s Keith Steffen) a rising senior at Independence High School has won a place at the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City, Missouri. Independence High Information Technology Instructor Keith Steffen will also attend the conference, held the last week in June. More than 15,000 people, including students, teachers and business partners are expected to participate in the week-long conference. Franklin Synergy Bank is pleased to take part in the funding of Climer’s travel to Kansas City for the competition.

SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. SkillsUSA’s mission is to help its members become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens.

Fostering student interest in information technology and preparing a skilled workforce are essential in an economically prosperous community. We are fortunate to have teachers such as Keith Steffen and students like Ben Climer.
