Nashville-based FirstBank, a wholly owned subsidiary of First South Bancorp, Inc., is the third largest Tennessee-headquartered bank, with 47 full-service bank branches across Tennessee, North Alabama and North Georgia, and mortgage locations across the Southeast. The bank serves every major metropolitan market in Tennessee and, with $2.9 billion in total assets, has the resources to provide a comprehensive variety of financial services and products. FirstBank follows a community-banking model which began in 1906 when the charter was issued for Farmers State Bank, in Scotts Hill, Tenn.
As one of Tennessee’s leading community banks, FirstBank is committed to its role as a leader in the communities it serves. That commitment is reflected by the Ayers Foundation Scholars program, a scholarship fund established by FirstBank Chairman and sole shareholder James W. Ayers to advance higher education for young people in Tennessee.
