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.

"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."
