The difference

Personal attention and relationship based banking to meet your needs now and tomorrow. See How


Tennessee Bank & Trust is a full-service bank that offers clients a range of custom products and services for both individuals and businesses. Our bankers are some of the most experienced in the middle Tennessee market, and they share one common characteristic: the desire to serve their clients better than anyone else. That’s why we get to know you in a way most banks don’t. The relationship we develop, together, fuels our ability to tailor banking solutions to your unique needs. You’ll receive exceptional service, personally delivered.

We entered the middle Tennessee market in 2004 by establishing a branch in Franklin and then in Nashville in 2006. We are one of seven banks wholly owned by Gaylon M. Lawrence, Jr.


Tennessee Bank & Trust’s Board of Directors were carefully selected to include a range of business owners, entrepreneurs and community leaders that reflect the bank’s emphasis on serving the greater Nashville area. The Board is charged with leadership, prudence and the financial performance of the bank.

Relationship banking begins with people and Tennessee Bank & Trust is proud to have assembled some of the finest bankers and personnel in the region. We have a retention rate seldom seen in our industry largely due to empowering our team through respect for their abilities and trust in their judgement in their roles with customers.
