CNB announces Russell and Frazure appointments

MERIDIAN —     Danny Russell was recently promoted to the position of a Relationship Banker at Citizens National Bank in Meridian.

         CNB’s Senior Relationship Banker for the Meridian area, Jim Solomon, says the bank is pleased to have Danny on the Meridian Relationship Banking team.

    “Danny has spent the last two years in the bank’s Credit Administration Department and brings an in-depth knowledge of credit underwriting with him. In addition, Danny has a very good knowledge of the Meridian marketplace and has a good customer contact base,” Solomon said.

         Russell is a 2005 graduate of Lamar School, and a 2010 graduate of the University of Mississippi. He also received his Business Administration degree from Ole Miss with an emphasis in managerial finance.

         A recent graduate of the Leadership Lauderdale program, he attends St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Meridian and is a member of the Young Professionals of Meridian organization.

         Chase Frazure also recently transferred as a Relationship Banker with Citizens National Bank’s Columbus office to join the bank’s Meridian team.

         Frazure was originally hired by the bank in November 2010, and has 14 years of total banking experience. He began his career with M & F Bank as a part-time teller while he was attending Mississippi State University. He later served as a Management Trainee for M & F in Brandon, Miss., and advanced to the position of Consumer Lender. Upon receiving a promotion to the position of Branch Manager, Chase transferred to Ridgeland, Miss.  

    Frazure later served as a Credit Analyst for M & F, and was then promoted to Vice President and Commercial Lender for M & F in the Starkville area before joining Citizens National Bank in Columbus.

         Originally from Kosciusko, Frazure and his wife, Lindsey, have a daughter, Kambree, who is three years old, and a son, Hayden, who is eight years old.

         He graduated with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration degree from Mississippi State University, and is also a graduate of the Mississippi School of Banking at Ole Miss and The Southeastern School of Commercial Lending at Vanderbilt.  Currently, he is in his first year of studies with the Graduate School of Banking at LSU and is a member of its Class of 2015.

         Jim Solomon, Senior Relationship Banker in Meridian said.

    “We are very excited to have Chase here in Meridian! Not only does he bring a wealth of banking knowledge and experience, but he also brings several years of experience and knowledge of how our Bank operates. He did a great job for us in our Columbus market, and there is no doubt that he will do the same here in Meridian,” Solomon said.

         Citizens National Bank is an independent, Mississippi-owned bank which has 27 bank locations throughout the state of Mississippi in cities such as Meridian, Ridgeland, Madison, Flowood, Hattiesburg, Laurel, Waynesboro, Columbus, Macon, Kosciusko, Carthage, Philadelphia, Southaven and Olive Branch.
