I am Courtnie Beach, Vice President of Lending and Branch Manager at the Monroe, Louisiana, Branch of Century Next Bank. I am a mom to two girls, and my husband works offshore as a barge supervisor for Hess Corporation. We are residents of Monroe.
I graduated from Crossett High School in 2003 and began my banking career the following year. In 2012, while working full-time, I earned my Bachelor’s in General Studies from ULM. I began working with Century Next Bank, formerly known as Bank of Ruston, in 2016, which began an exciting time of career growth for me. I helped plant roots for the bank in Ouachita Parish with the first branch here in 2016. In 2018, I served on the Merger Team and played a part in the success of our acquisition of First National Bank of Crossett, as well as our name change to Century Next Bank.
I’ve spent time in both our Ashley County and Ouachita Parish markets, and I love helping the South Arkansas-North Louisiana region. Since I began working in banking as a teller in 2004, I have always believed in putting the customer first no matter what, and I truly value each customer relationship. In my work with the mortgage team, I am here to celebrate alongside a customer building a home or to share the excitement when someone refinances for a better rate. I make sure each person is taken care of and that they are receiving next-level service at all times.
When you bank with me or any of our mortgage team at Century Next, you can trust your Bank with Locals experience.
