Nashville-based FirstBank has named Keely Hall city president of its Franklin branch.
In the role, Hall will be responsible for leading and developing the bank’s Five Points financial center, according to a release.
Hall comes to the position with more than 16 years of industry experience. Since 2010, he has served as Brentwood-area vice president and commercial relationship manager for FirstBank. Previously, he worked as branch manager and vice president for US Bank’s Franklin location and as the Williamson County branch manager for Birmingham-based Regions Financial.
A Pepperdine University graduate, Hall holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in theology. He is a board member of the Williamson County Chamber Foundation and the Brentwood Rotary Club.
Hall succeeds Mary Lankford, who served as city president since late 2016 and will now direct her efforts toward business development and community partnerships in Williamson County.
“Keely has shown tremendous leadership during his eight years at FirstBank, and we are proud that his work will continue as city president,” FirstBank Middle Tennessee Chairman Gordon Inman said in the release. “Franklin is one of our strongest markets, and Keely’s ties to the Franklin community are definitely an asset. He embodies FirstBank’s commitment to service and prioritizes customer relationships and local connections.”
FirstBank has been named as one of Middle Tennessee’s Top Workplaces by The Tennessean for four years running, winning the 2018 Hall of Fame award. To be a Top Workplace, FirstBank met high standards for a healthy workplace culture as ranked by its own employees.
