Bank hosts grand opening


With a ceremonial snip of a ribbon, TnBank of Knoxville opened its newest location Jan. 25 at 1005 N. Cedar Bluff Road at its intersection with Bob Gray Road.

Among those assisting in the formal opening were Frank Jamison, board chairman of TNBank, Angie Mills, David V. Milner, Lorraine Loy, Sherry George, Brian Wahl, Kimberly Betts, Sarah Bruce, Jeanne E. Hill and Tom Tuck.

Bettye Sisco, executive director of the Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce, represented the Chamber at the continental breakfast that preceded the ribbon-cutting.

The bank had its start in 1995 when 21 organizers joined in Oak Ridge to open the first locally-owned banking institution begun there since 1953.

The grand opening featured cash-filled balloons, which those who attended were allowed to burst after the event concluded.

In its decade, TnBank has grown to include more than 700 shareholders, $122 million in assets and offers its customers a full line of checking, savings, mortgage and loans, as well as commercial banking services. Tuck, who introduced Jamison, told he crowd the board chairman had worked in his home to restore to its former luster an antique check writer’s stand, now displayed proudly in the bank lobby.

Joe Tate, developer of the commercial area around Tate’s School of Discovery, attended the grand opening breakfast and said he recalled when the vicinity, now heavily traveled, was best known as an area for seasonal Christmas tree sales.

The bank has a Farragut location, at 11200 Kingston Pike.
