Memphis, Tenn.-based First Tennessee Bank will begin in-house management of its computer technology infrastructure, including all servers and its mainframe, bringing 65 information technology jobs to a bank-staffed Maryville data center over the next 18 months.

First Tennessee, the regional banking unit of First Horizon National Corp., is building the data center, which will house new employees as well as other IT employees who will be relocated from nearby locations. At its full capacity, 110 employees will work in the new data center.

"The desire to serve our customers better than any other bank is what's driving us to bring our technology management back inside the company," said Bruce Livesay, executive vice president and chief information officer for First Horizon. "We are excited about the future of our company, and with this change we'll be able to more quickly and efficiently respond to our customers' needs and the changes that are required of banks that want to compete in today's dynamic marketplace."
