First Tennessee Bank, a subsidiary of First Horizon Company (NYSE: FHN), is a full service community bank headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. Although First Horizon operates in other states, First Tennessee is only in the state of Tennessee, where it operates 180 branches. The bank, which often calls its branches “financial centers” rather than banks, offers consumers CDs, savings accounts, home mortgage loans, auto loans, and more. First Tennessee's history dates all the way back to 1864, when the Fist National Bank of Memphis was founded. Though the bank grew steadily over its first 100 years, it experienced enormous growth during the 13 years that Allen B. Morgan served as president, then CEO, then chairman. By the time he retired, First Tennessee had grown from $500 billion in assets to more than $1.5 billion. First Tennessee Bank is one of the largest mortgage lenders in the state of Tennessee.
