First Tennessee Bank Celebrates Grand Opening of New Nolensville Financial Center
The design is a prototype for future Tennessee offices.
NOLENSVILLE, Tennessee, March 11, 2016 – The Middle Tennessee leaders of First Tennessee Bank were joined today by leaders of Nolensville and Williamson County, along with scores of bank customers and friends to officially open the bank’s new Nolensville Financial Center. The new building replaces the bank’s original office in Nolensville.
The ceremony began by cutting a ribbon of $2 bills, which will be donated to the Nolensville Historical Society. Leading the ribbon-cutting ceremony were:
- Carol Yochem, President First Tennessee Bank – Middle Tennessee
- Jimmy Alexander, Mayor of Nolensville
- Joe Walker, Williamson County Community President
- Wendy Duke, Manager of the First Tennessee Bank Nolensville Financial Center
“It’s always exciting to open a new Financial Center, but this one is special because it’s the prototype for our future branch offices,” Yochem said. “It’s appropriate that such a special facility is located in this very special place. Nolensville is an outstanding exampleof a city that has learned how to grow without losing the character and charm that attracted people here in the first place. It’s an honor for First Tennessee to be part of this community.”
The brick, one-story, 2,300-square-foot building – which was built by Southland Constructors – is designed to make banking more convenient. Its open floor plan makes it easy for customers and bankers to interact, and the new office features technology that allows both tellers and deskside financial services representatives to handle any transaction, including accepting deposits and providing cash.
Duke, manager of the new facility, who has been at First Tennessee’s Nolensville location for 16 years, said it was good to see so many friends, old and new, at the celebration.
“The people who work here and the customers we serve have really become like family to me, so today kind of feels like a family reunion,” she said. “It was especially good to see Sandy Glenn, the former manager of this branch, who served First Tennessee’s Nolensville customers for 28 years before she retired this past fall. I think she is almost as excited as I am about this wonderful new office.”
