First Horizon National Corp. has again been named one of the nation’s top companies for female executives, according to the National Association for Female Executives.

Women make up 63 percent of First Horizon’s workforce, 32 percent of its executive team, 25 percent of senior managers and 77 percent of managers, the Memphis-based company says.

“First Horizon takes great pride in our long history of supporting and promoting the success of women and we are honored to be recognized for the eighth consecutive year on NAFE’s Top Companies for Executive Women list,” said John Daniel, chief human resources officer. “We are proud of our progress and will continue to work to advocate and promote the success of women in our organization.”

First Horizon is the parent company of First Tennessee Bank, Capital Bank,  FTB Advisors, and FTN Financial.

The 2019 NAFE Top Companies for Executive Women honors U.S. corporations that demonstrate a strong focus in moving women to senior ranks, including mentoring, sponsorship, involvement in employee resource groups and leadership development training. Companies also are judged by benefits, flexibility, corporate culture, and CEO involvement in advancing women.

At First Horizon, new mothers receive an average eight weeks of fully paid leave. Individuals who adopt receive four weeks of fully paid leave and as much as $15,000 in adoption reimbursement assistance, First Horizon says. Adoption assistance has doubled from last year.

“The 2019 NAFE Top Companies continue to tell a progressive story about what organizations are doing to move women up into executive positions,” says Subha V. Barry, president of Working Mother Media. “While the results are encouraging, there is still much work to do.”
