Landmark Community Bank taps Coleman as VP

Bill Coleman has joined the downtown Franklin office of Landmark Community Bank as vice president of cash management services.

Coleman, who most recently served as a vice president at First Vision Bank in Murfreesboro, will oversee Landmark Community Bank efforts involving positive pay, account reconciliation, ACH and wire services, remote deposit capture and online banking, according to a release.

Coleman started his banking career with Banker’s Trust in Nashville and later worked with Tennessee Commerce Bank and Republic Bank in Franklin.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Middle Tennessee State University.

“Landmark’s approach to commercial banking is unique, and my job is to do whatever it takes to help our clients be successful,” Coleman said in the release. “This is a true community bank, where we understand the customer’s objectives and offer a solution to fit those needs, not the other way around. That kind of relationship banking, along with the competitive rates and options, made this role very attractive.”

Landmark Community Bank is based in Collierville, Tennessee.

LBMC rolls out new branding

Local accounting and consulting services company LBMC has overhauled its branding with the help of Greenfield Belser, a Washington, D.C., firm.

LBMC leaders began thinking about a new look and tagline more than a year ago as they were preparing for a leadership change. New Managing Partner Jeff Drummonds promises the firm will become more visible and deliver its message with "a little more swagger."

Founded in 1984 and now employing nearly 450 people in three offices, LBMC also has rebranded some of the companies under its umbrella. Here's how the group is now positioned:

• LBMC (refers to the entire family of companies)
• LBMC PC
• LBMC Staffing Solutions
• LBMC Technology Solutions
• LBMC Employment Partners
• LBMC Investment Advisors
• LBMC Information Security
• LBMC Physician Business Solutions
• LBMC Business Process Solutions

“This brand is exactly who we are: it is innovative, it is forward thinking, put simply, it is us,” said Leisa Gill, director of marketing. “The world today is a noisier place with more distractions. The new LBMC brand, materials, and website are designed to capture the imagination of our clients — and draw their attention to our core value propositions.”

Analyst action: Pinnacle, Delek

Brian Martin at FIG Partners has lowered his rating on shares of Pinnacle Financial Partners to 'market perform' from 'market outperform' following the bank holding company's Q2 profit report. Before the report, Martin's price target was $53, just a bit above where Pinnacle (Ticker: PNFP) is changing hands today. Over at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, analysts have trimmed their price target for Nashville-based Pinnacle to $62 from $63 but maintained his 'buy' rating.

Macquarie analyst Vikas Dwivedi has launched coverage of several refining stocks with positive ratings, saying the sector will benefit from tight capacity and solid financials. Among the companies getting 'outperform' ratings is Brentwood-based Delek US Holdings. Mid-morning Tuesday, Delek (Ticker: DK) was trading at about $36.50. So far this year, they're up 34 percent.
