As of May 1, 2021, First National Bank is now operating as Louisiana National Bank. Russell Woodard, Chairman of the Board of the bank, addressed the adoption of a new name by saying, “Due to the number of banks around the state and the nation using “First National” in their titles, the use of First National Bank has become confusing to many of our customers and other banks. To better distinguish who we are and who we now serve, the Board recently determined to change the bank’s name to Louisiana National Bank.” Woodard emphasized that the ownership, officers, and management of the bank are not changing. “Only our name is changing. Our commitment to all the customers and communities we serve will remain our focus. Everyone here at the bank expresses our continuing gratitude to all our customers who have helped the bank become the institution it is.”
Since opening its doors in Arcadia, Louisiana in 1905, First National Bank has served Louisiana communities and businesses as a locally owned and operated bank with personalized and prompt service. Just as First National Bank has done for over 115 years, Louisiana National Bank will continue to offer a full range of services for personal and business banking and has a demonstrated history of supporting and advancing the needs of its customers, employees and shareholders.
