Impact Bank opens for business today

First National Bank in Wellington and Caldwell State Bank will open today as Impact Bank, following the closing of a merger agreement the two Sumner County banks announced earlier this year.

The merger creates the largest, locally owned bank in Sumner County with two full-service branches and four ATM locations.

“The name ‘Impact Bank’ was chosen to communicate the historic and ongoing commitment to positively impact the financial lives of our customers,” said John T. Stewart III, chairman of the merged banks' holding company, First Financial Corp., in a news release. “Impact Bank will deliver expanded financial opportunities with the same leadership teams and staff members our customers know and trust.”
