RUSTON, LA – Community Trust Bank is changing its name. The more-than-a-century old Louisiana-chartered bank, with banking centers in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas and assets of more than $3.8 billion, today announced it has officially changed its name to Origin Bank.
“Throughout our history, our bank has continued to evolve to better represent our customers’ changing financial needs,” said Origin Bank Chief Executive Officer Drake Mills. “We’ve changed our name, but we’re not changing who we are. Our promise to customers will always remain the same—to make every customer feel like the only customer every time.”
For existing bank customers, all account numbers, PINs, routing numbers and other account information will remain exactly the same, while ATM cards, debit cards, credit cards and checks will continue to function normally. The rollout of its new name will not affect the bank’s normal business operations.originbank1
The new name and logo were officially introduced across the bank’s online and customer service channels, as well as via the company’s social media presence. Customers can log in to the bank’s new website at to learn more. Changes to signage at all of Origin’s 41 banking centers across its tri-state footprint will continue in the coming weeks and months.
“Our name change is not the result of being sold or merging with another institution,” said Mills. “It was a strategic decision to differentiate our brand. There are a number of banks with ‘community’ or ‘trust’ in their names. Origin is now a name we can trademark and distinctly call our own.”
Since its start in 1912 as the Bank of Choudrant, Origin Bank has grown in size and scale, largely due to its personalized, relationship-based service approach, for both business and personal banking customers. Today, Origin offers a wide range of financial services, including incentive-based checking, mortgage refinancing, business loans and equipment financing.
“While we celebrate our past, we step confidently into our future,” said Mills. “Origin is the place where dreams can be created—for our customers, employees, shareholders and communities.”
