First Tennessee Bank in Memphis drew from within to fill an important regional executive job.
The $25 billion-asset subsidiary of First Horizon National said in a press release Wednesday that Louis Allen, executive vice president and manager of commercial banking for the bank's west Tennessee region, will be promoted to regional president June 30. Allen will succeed Bruce Hopkins, who was appointed west Tennessee chairman.
Allen was hired by First Tennessee as executive vice president and manager of commercial banking for west Tennessee in 2009. Hopkins joined the bank in 1986 and managed private client, trust and wealth management before he was named west Tennessee president in 2011.
