Jamie Osbirn had an idea in 2010 to launch a new start-up bank in Tupelo. He approached the First American National Bank leadership team and was given the green light to execute his plan.
One year later, the Tupelo location opened its doors and Osbirn is now vice president of the city’s newest bank.
The Amory native has been honored by his employer on numerous occasions, including receiving First American’s 2013 Star Employee Award and the 2012 Impact Award for outstanding loan growth.
Before joining First American, Osbirn worked for nearly four years in a similar capacity with M&F Bank.
In addition to his father Johnny, the Mississippi State University graduate admires Thomas Mize, a former boss who taught Osbirn what a “good” banker should be.
A member of the Mississippi Young Bankers Association, Osbirn is married and the father of two children. In his leisure time, he enjoys fishing and playing golf.
