CTB moves toward its origin

in
New name of Origin Bank unveiled

With growth and expansion comes change, and for Community Trust Bank that means a new name.
“Our name change is not the result of being sold or merging with another institution,” said Origin Bank Chief Executive Officer Drake Mills. “It was a strategic decision to differentiate our brand.
