Community Trust Bank adopts Origin Bank name

Community Trust Bank, a more than 100-year-old Louisiana bank with operations in Mississippi and Texas,  is now Origin Bank.

OriginBank_1280x960 (1)The $3.8 billion Origin Bank said the name change is an effort to avoid confusion with the numerous other banks that have “community” or “trust” in their names.

For existing customers, all account numbers, PINs, routing numbers and other account information will remain the same, while ATM cards, debit cards, credit cards and checks will continue to function normally, according to a press release from Origin.

“The rollout of its new name will not affect the bank’s normal business operations,” Origin said.

Customers can log in to the bank’s new website OriginBankOnline.com to learn more. Changes to signage at all of Origin’s 41 banking centers across its tri-state market will continue in the coming weeks and months, Origin said.

“Our name change is not the result of being sold or merging with another institution,” CEO Drake Mills said. “It was a strategic decision to differentiate our brand. There are a number of banks with ‘community’ or ‘trust’ in their names. Origin is now a name we can trademark and distinctly call our own.”
