FRANKLIN, Tenn., July 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Franklin Synergy Bank, (NYSE: FSB) announced today that bank loans surpassed the $1 billion mark on Wednesday, July 15, 2015. Founded in 2007, Franklin Synergy Bank achieved this milestone by maintaining a healthy balance sheet focused on credit quality, capital, and liquidity, as well as a commitment to building a team dedicated to delivering exceptional value to our customers.

"Our strategy has always been to help local businesses and professionals achieve long-term success by providing banking services based on responsiveness, flexibility and customized solutions," said Chairman and CEO Richard Herrington. "While we are thrilled to reach this milestone, I am most proud of the fact that we have done so as a team, with constant dedication to our customers and corporate values. This accomplishment validates our commitment and approach to delivering an outstanding relationship-banking experience."

In less than eight years, Franklin Synergy Bank has achieved significant loan growth while maintaining strong asset quality. Deposits have grown at an even faster rate, crossing the $1 billion milestone in July 2014. Today the bank has 11 branches in Williamson and Rutherford Counties with plans to add an office in Davidson County.

"Moving forward, we remain committed to maintaining a culture based on accessibility, accountability and understanding," said Herrington. "We are confident in our ability to continue to grow the franchise as we meet the financial needs of our friends and neighbors."

Founded in November 2007, Franklin Synergy Bank currently has six offices in Williamson County and five offices in Rutherford County. The bank provides deposit and loan products, treasury management, wealth management, trust and financial planning services for consumers and businesses. Franklin Synergy earned its first profit in 2009, after just five quarters of operation. The bank's assets and deposits both surpassed $1 billion in July 2014, just after the completion of the acquisition of Rutherford County's MidSouth Bank. Loans surpassed $1 billion in July 2015. Recent FDIC data shows that Franklin Synergy Bank is the deposit share market leader in Williamson County. The bank is also the top deposit share bank in Franklin, Tennessee.
