First Horizon Top Bank In InformationWeek List Of Technology Innovators

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Sept. 12, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Horizon National Corp. (NYSE:FHN) won first place in the Banking & Financial Services Industry segment on the 2012 InformationWeek 500 list of the nation's most innovative users of business technology. First Horizon ranked 14 th overall and is the highest-ranked bank in the 2012 list. This is First Horizon's 10th appearance on the list.

First Horizon earned recognition for transforming its information technology organization, systems and infrastructure to deliver a differentiated customer experience and sow the seeds for growth. In a sweeping renewal effort that started in late 2010, First Horizon upgraded or replaced every key business system, including those used by customers.

"Today when customers walk into one of our financial centers or call one of our support lines they interact with our employees who have at their fingertips more timely and relevant information about our customers' accounts, their relationships and their needs," said Bruce Livesay, executive vice president and chief information officer for First Horizon. "We are proud to be honored by InformationWeek for using technology to best benefit our customers and our employees who serve them."

From upgrading core loan and deposit systems to deploying mobile banking, First Horizon's "all-in" technology transformation aimed to make the company easy to do business with for external and internal customers. "Thanks to the hard work of our technology team," Livesay said, "we are building for the future with a new technology foundation."

Now in its 23rd year, the InformationWeek 500 tracks the information technology practices of the nation's most innovative IT organizations, providing a unique opportunity to understand and examine the business practices of these firms across core areas of operations including technology deployment, IT budgets, business-technology infrastructure and IT strategies.
