Lineage Bank, a de novo institution headquartered in Franklin, Tennessee, is scheduled to open for business today. The bank will compete with nearby institutions, including Nashville-based FirstBank, First Citizens National Bank, and larger players with a presence in the area, such as Regions Bank.

The $33 million-asset bank takes its name in part from the fact that it is run by a father-son team — Chairman and CEO Kevin Harrington, and  his father, Richard Herrington, a director at the bank. Together, the pair have over 60 years of experience in banking, having both held leadership roles at Franklin Synergy Bank. The bank plans to offer personal and business services upon its launch, according to its website.

The bank is part of the Lineage Financial Network, a multi-bank holding company that includes Citizens Bank and Trust, also located in Tennessee.
