The one thing I want my customer to understand is that I am just a phone call away and I'm always here to help bring value to their business.

Citizens National Bank believes every small business deserves a dependable and hardworking Relationship Banker to help them achieve their goals. For years now, Danny Russell has been a valuable asset to the Meridian team. He started as a credit analyst which gave him the opportunity to familiarize himself with the entire Meridian region of relationships. During this time he also succeeded in becoming a 2013 Leadership Lauderdale graduate. Danny believes that the time he spent in Credit Administration gave him the tools he needed to be a successful Relationship Banker.

With a bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Managerial Finance from the University of Mississippi, Danny has obtained the knowledge needed to help his clients grow their business and become successful in their endeavors. He believes his combination of Credit Administration and Relationship Banking gives him the opportunity to "see the customer as a whole, making it that much easier to get a loan approved and funded as soon as possible." Danny wants all of his customers to feel comfortable with him by knowing he will do everything he can to make their business thrive.

He states, "Every time I meet a customer, I want them to feel comfortable with me and know that I am 100% available for them, whether it's a weekend visit or a weekday evening call."

Danny is the youngest of his family of five. He states, "My family has always played an integral part in my life, and I will always appreciate the love and support they have given me throughout my life."

During his free time, Danny partakes in activities with such groups as the Young Professionals of Meridian and also enjoys volunteering for a new educational program called The Meridian Freedom Project. His idea of a good time is a relaxing day at home. He also enjoys relaxing, fishing, or just playing guitar at the lake on the weekends. He currently attends Fifteenth Avenue Baptist Church.

Danny considers his greatest accomplishment to be the time and effort spent to achieve a diploma in Business Administration from the University of Mississippi. He believes that the knowledge attained and the efforts spent have helped pave his way to a successful career with Citizens National Bank and his clients.

Danny is seen as an outgoing and trustworthy person that loves life, family, and friends. So let Danny help take your business to the next level with his expertise and energetic drive.
