"Banking with locals is important because of the relationships, when you know somebody. They have helped me when I’m in a bind, for example if I have a tractor break down or need something right away, I know they are there for me."

Century Next Bank is a great experience. Any branch you walk into, they know you as a customer. It’s a relationship that I would encourage everybody to look for in a bank.

It’s easy for everybody to like you and to loan you money when times are good. When your back is against the wall… those are the times you always need a local banker that understands when it’s raining. That’s why I value my relationship with Century Next Bank.

"Community to me means caring and sharing for one another and working together to accomplish a common goal. I think banking with locals is important because it builds relationships, and helps the community to thrive by meeting their financial needs."
Carol Campbell ● Call Center Manager, Crossett
"People don’t bank with banks, they bank with people, and who better to help you with your banking needs than someone that lives and serves in the same community as you. It’s the trust that you have with your banker to steer you in the right direction and give you an honest answer to a question. It’s about receiving advice, guidance and education from a trusted source."
Nate Trisler ● Training Coordinator, Operations Center
"Community to me means the gathering of people towards a common goal. Banking with locals helps us build our communities. Banks rely on our local residents to help grow our bank, and not only does that grow the bank, but it helps grow and build the community because of the bank’s reinvestment."
Eli Cook ● HMDA/CRA/Fair Lending Officer, Operations Center
"Community means having someone to count on when you need them. It means working together for the greater good. I have seen firsthand just how much local banks invest in our communities, and how the employees of those banks volunteer their time so selflessly because they truly care. By banking with a local bank, customers are able to count on someone they can trust and depend on. It’s rewarding and fulfilling when a customer reaches out to me directly because they know I’ll be there for them!"
Lorie Hamlin ● Chief Operations Officer (Executive Team), Main Office
"Community to me means bringing people together to help build and inform each other on different areas that one might not know about. It means building new relationships and venturing out to do something for someone else. It's important to bank with locals because of the relationships that your build with them and the accessibility"
"Your community is about relationships, and it’s those relationships that bless the various aspects of your life. From friends and family to your place of employment and organizations you’re involved with . . . relationships make a community. This is why, for me, choosing a local bank is important. It’s about relationships and knowing that your bank is partnering with you to grow and nurture the communities in which you live."
Toni Bacon ● Commercial Lender, West Monroe
"Community is building connections. Banking with locals is important to support your community and bank with someone you know and trust."
Patricia Murad ● Administration, Main Office
"Community to me means family. It’s important to bank local because we are truly family. We know your name. We know your kids and grandkids. We care about you and what you are going through in life. We are here for you!"
Christy Martin ● Branch Manager/Lender, Hamburg
"Community to me is when everyone comes together to help promote, give back, and work together. When I think of community I immediately think of my hometown Hamburg and the World Famous Armadillo Festival. Our little community comes together every year and we have the best festival and events for everyone. Banking with locals is important because you get to know your customers by name. Banking local helps support your community."
