Bank of Tennessee Breaks Ground on New Knoxville Location
July 24, 2017 – Bank of Tennessee leadership and employees, along with Knoxville Chamber leaders, officially broke ground on a new location in Knoxville on July 11, 2017.
The 5,200 square foot branch will be located at 224 Brookview Centre Way, Suite 112. The new location will feature an open lobby area will contain work stations for Customer Experience Officers at Bank of Tennessee. These highly trained employees will be able to handle almost any kind of financial transaction or request that a customer has.
“The traditional bank layout of a line of employees hidden behind a teller wall will be replaced with a more open, friendly environment,” said Roy Harmon, CEO and Chairman of the Board for Bank of Tennessee. Harmon continued, “The banking industry has changed so much over the past decade with the advancements of technology and other services. While Bank of Tennessee has been a pretty early adopter of these improvements, we are still focused on delivering face-to-face experiences that our customers looking for. We have several locations that have this branch layout including the Green Hills area of Nashville, Mount Juliet and downtown Kingsport. The feedback has been great and we are excited to now be in Knoxville with a great staff.” Learn more »
“The great thing about being a locally owned and operated company is that we empower our employees, in all our locations, with the ability to make decisions and take care of customers. Many of our competitors have headquarters in Charlotte, Atlanta, Memphis or elsewhere. So people in other states are making decisions that impact the financial lives of people here in this community,” said William B. Greene Jr., Chairman of Bank of Tennessee Holding Company, BancTenn Corp . “But here at Bank of Tennessee, decisions are made by local people that you can walk up to and shake hands with.”
Several people spoke at the Groundbreaking Ceremony including Mark Field, Senior Vice President of Knoxville Chamber Development, David Haynes, Knoxville Market President, Roy L. Harmon, CEO and Chairman of the Board at Bank of Tennessee, and Chairman of Bank of Tennessee Holding Company, BancTenn Corp, William B. Greene Jr.
Customers can visit our temporary branch located at 1111 Northshore Drive, Suite P-295 in Knoxville, TN. Professional partners for this construction project are Lewis Group Architects and JKS Retail Development.

Haynes has already acquired a permanent location site that will be announced shortly and has hired five additional teammates.
