Nathan Powell
Assistant Bank Manager - Downtown Banking Center

Nathan Powell was recently promoted to Assistant Bank Manager at CNB’s Downtown Banking Centre. He joined the Bank in October 2016 and has been a true asset to our Downtown Banking Centre team since that time. As Neil said, “Nathan continues to perform at a high level

and is always eager to help his team members and provide excellent service to our customers. On

many occasions, I’ve been pulled aside by some of Nathan’s customers acknowledging that Nathan followed up from their already great experience at the Bank with a hand written note mailed to their house. As we all know, it’s the little things that make a big deal and Nathan is making a big deal everyday with our customers! It will be great to see Nathan grow more in his role under Kristi Tew’s leadership and guidance and we look forward to seeing great things from Nathan in the future!”

A graduate of Enterprise High School and East Central Community College, Nathan received his Bachelor of Business Administration degree from MSU Meridian in May 2016.
