The recent expansion of our bank has presented opportunities for growth, enhancement of systems and services, greater security, and the opportunity to reassure our customers that our commitment to you remains solid. While we understand that change can sometimes be challenging, we know that “progress is impossible without change” (George Bernard Shaw). As we progress, we want our customers, communities, and shareholders to know our heart and what we truly represent. We cannot express enough our appreciation to our loyal customers for their patience and understanding as we made the transition into new systems that will result in greater enhancements to your banking experience. Thank you!
Although Century Next Bank has evolved over the last century, one thing remains the same: our commitment to our customers and communities as reflected in our mission statement:
“Century Next Bank is committed to exceeding expectations, making a difference, and excelling in financial and community leadership within the areas we serve.”
Defining who you are and what your objectives are is crucial to success. Our mission statement truly defines who we are as a bank. We are committed to providing excellence to you because we care about you.
We don’t want to just meet your expectations, we want to exceed them by going the extra mile. The heart of our employees is to provide superior customer service and to offer excellent products and services while continuing to serve our community, whether it be inside or outside of our bank walls. As we progress as a bank, we are committed to exceeding your expectations every day.
Making a Difference
We truly care about our customers and our communities, and we strive to exhibit that concern every day. We are each faced with daily life challenges, and as your bank of choice, we are here to help you by going the extra mile to assist you with your financial needs.
Excelling in Financial and Community Leadership within the Areas we Serve
Now that Century Next Bank has a presence in both north Louisiana and south Arkansas, we have the privilege of sharing who we are as a combined force within these areas. In these first five months of 2019, we have made over $50,000 in contributions to support special community events, local schools and universities, Chambers of Commerce, baseball leagues, church organizations, historical museums, arts organizations, and countless others. Additionally, and often the most priceless contribution to make, we donate time in our communities. Many employees volunteer for community organizations and events, serve on countless nonprofit boards, as well as offer helpful hands and hearts in service.
We also show our support to our communities by coordinating special events. Most recently, we held our 10th annual First Responder Appreciation Day in Ruston at our main office where we grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for local first responders. A most anticipated upcoming event for the Ashley County community is our annual 4th of July fireworks display for everyone to enjoy in Crossett.
Roadmap to the Next Century
At Century Next Bank, we strive to continue seeking ways to progress and improve so that we can serve you better. Community involvement, commitment to our customers, and being the financial leader in the areas we serve remain at the forefront of our roadmap moving forward. The future is bright, and we are excited for what lies ahead. Thank you for being on the journey into the next century with us!
