Jeff King, West Mississippi Regional President for Citizens National Bank, is pleased to announce that Michael Kimbrell has joined the Bank as Rankin County Market President. With 29 years of banking experience, Kimbrell has an extensive background in both retail and commercial banking. He began his career with Deposit Guaranty National Bank as a teller in 1990 and was promoted in 1994 to serve as a lender and manager of several branch locations in the Columbus and Jackson areas until 1998.
His next 18 years of service in the banking industry were with BankPlus.

In addition, he serves on the board of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Miss., and is active in the Rankin County and Flowood Chambers of Commerce. A graduate of Mississippi State University, Kimbrell received his Bachelor’s of Business Administration degree in 1993, and completed studies at The Graduate School of Banking at LSU in 2010.
