CREATING WEALTH GROUNDED IN COMMUNITY
Seriously local. Serious return.
We started in 1906 as Farmers State Bank, when local banks in West Tennessee weren’t just creating profits. They were creating the towns and communities like Scotts Hill where our flagship branch still remains today. Times change, but the things that make being part of a community great, like strong ties and trusted relationships, never change. That’s why we remained local, making what we had learned as a community bank our business model. Staying local, our reputation got around. FirstBank has grown through organic growth and mergers for doing the banking that matters. Community banking.
Serious growth by taking values seriously.
Over three decades, FirstBank’s assets grew to be in the billions but we never compromised our vision. In 2001, we expanded our brand of authentic local banking into the state’s most iconic cities, from Nashville to Memphis. FirstBank has made small town life our business culture empowering local market presidents and managers to make real decisions locally. You can walk into any branch and find a welcoming smile and willingness to help. You will know instantly you’re not just a customer. You’re part of the FirstBank family.
The FirstBank story is an American success story. Watch the history spanning more than 115 years.
The investment we are most proud of is the dedication of our time, resources, and people to improving life in our communities.
Since 1906, we’ve been bringing our customers and communities closer to their dreams by building a genuinely local brand of banking. Sure there are other local banks, but we’re a community bank by choice. For us, size doesn’t determine community banking; it’s our style of banking and what we do best. What’s huge to our customers is what’s huge to us. The investment we are most proud of is giving our time, resources, and talents to improving life in our communities.
Making time for what’s close to our hearts makes life richer and our communities better.
