Best Companies LogoCitizens National Bank has been named one of the “100 Best Companies To Work For In Texas” for 2015!   This is a joint initiative of the Texas Association of Business, The Society of Human Resource Management and Texas Monthly Magazine. There are many companies around this very big state who participate in this process, but only the 100 Best are chosen to receive this recognition.

Brad Tidwell, President & CEO of Citizens National Bank states, “The simple truth is, our bank is a great place to work because of the efforts of 380 Employees and Directors. They (each of us) are the company, we either make it a great place to work or not, it is not the other way around. So, this is just one more recognition of what all they do for Citizens National Bank and our customers, shareholders and communities.”

We could not more proud of this recognition for our great company!  Citizens National Bank truly is a great place to work and is now officially one of the “100 Best Companies To Work For In Texas!”

May Employee of the Month Announced

Gloria KingGloria King has been selected as the Employee of the Month for May 2014. Gloria is an Administrative Assistant in the Trust Department at the Downtown Longview location. One of her nominations said, “That Gloria is a dedicated, hard-working employee is obvious to anyone who meets her. Not only does she do her job at the expected level, but she consistently goes above and beyond to help Gordon (Northcutt) and our trust clients. Often those with ‘assistant’ in their title are overlooked and undervalued, but I think Gordon would agree that Gloria is indispensable to him and to the customers. I know of an instance recently where she went to a client’s rental property to assist the client in preparing the home for sale. I know of another time that she went to a storage unit with Gordon to help prepare the items inside for an estate sale. I doubt any of that stuff is in her job description, yet she does it willingly, with a good attitude and a big smile.” Gloria will receive a $50 Gift Certificate to a restaurant of her choice and will be recognized company-wide by Brad Tidwell, President and CEO.  Congratulations, Gloria!  Well deserved!

Citizens National Bank to Purchase East Texas National Bank

Brad Tidwell, President and CEO of Citizens National Bank (CNB), is pleased to announce that the bank has entered into a definitive agreement to purchase East Texas National Bank (ETNB) in Palestine, Texas.  ETNB’s main bank is located at 207 West Spring Street, with two full service branches located in Huntsville and Mexia. This transaction was approved by the boards of both banks and the closing is tentatively scheduled for June 2013, pending regulatory approval.

Brad Tidwell stated, “East Texas National Bank was chartered in 1911 in Palestine and has 102 years of deep East Texas roots, which is a great fit for Citizens National Bank, considering our 83 year history here in East Texas,” Tidwell continued, “Citizens National Bank is very excited to have the opportunity to acquire such an outstanding, conservative bank with values that mirror those of Citizens National Bank.”  Cliff Bomer, President of East Texas National Bank said, “East Texas National Bank has been the cornerstone of banking in our area for generations.  We are proud that we will be a part of a bank that will help us to continue to serve our customers for generations to come.”

East Texas National Bank has $150 million in assets as well as $65 million in assets under management in their trust department.  After the purchase of ETNB, Citizens National Bank will have $1.2 billion in assets and 24 branches throughout East and Central Texas.  The combined Trust Departments will have over $350 million in assets under management.  Citizens National Bank is a locally owned, independent, community bank headquartered in Henderson, Texas and has been serving the families and businesses of East Texas since 1930.
