CNB’s South Region is pleased to welcome Russ Rogers to their team. Prior to joining the CNB team, Russ was employed with Wells Fargo Bank in Hattiesburg. He began his career with the Bank as a Personal Banker, and was later promoted to the position of a Small Business Advocate. Most recently, he served as a Branch Manager for the Bank.
Kevin Brewer, CNB’s South Mississippi Regional President, says he is very excited that Russ has joined the team. “Russ has a heart to help people. He is extremely motivated to help his team members to grow and to get better,” Kevin said. “His background in retail and small business banking is also a true asset to his customers,” Kevin added.
Community banking is also in his blood. Russ commented that his mom retired from Century Bank in Lucedale after 35 years of service, and he is honored to have an opportunity to work for a community bank like CNB, which has such a long-standing heritage.
Nearing the completion of a Bachelor’s Degree from William Carey University, Russ’s customer service experience also includes two years of service with C Spire Wireless as an Account Services Representative, and five years as a Department Shift Leader for Wal-Mart.
He and his wife, Katherine, are the proud parents of two daughters: Anne Faulkner is 6, and Elise is 2. The family attends Venture Church in Hattiesburg, where Russ and his wife enjoy their volunteer work with the children’s ministry. He and his wife also enjoy volunteering with the ARC of Hattiesburg, which assists individuals with mental disabilities, as well as their families.
Russ says he enjoys spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, and watching football. Welcome to CNB, Russ! We are so pleased to have you on our team.
