Letter from the CEO
First National Bank DeRidder was established in 1934 and is considered a symbol of strength and stability in Beauregard Parish. In 2005, the bank recommitted itself to providing Beauregard Parish with customer service second to none. The cornerstone of this commitment is to build and expand relationships with existing and prospective customers by meeting their financial needs quickly and efficiently using the latest technology available to the financial industry.
Our goal is to identify opportunities that will save our customers money and satisfy all their banking needs easily, friendly and efficiently. “EASIER IS BETTER” is my philosophy! In order to accomplish this challenge, FNBD has made substantial investments in cutting edge technology that few community banks can claim. Our officers and employees have received extensive training on how to identify and satisfy customer needs with the latest, most cost efficient products and services.
In June 2005, our employees created and adopted the following mission statement that is displayed in every branch lobby to describe their beliefs and values as an organization:
We serve our friends and families in Beauregard Parish and the surrounding parishes with the sincere belief that sound money management improves standards of living and enriches the qualities of life. We uphold the following values to guide our actions in your behalf.
- Faith, Honesty, Trust, Customer Satisfaction and Loyalty
We pledge the following to you, our customers:
- The security of stability, and at your request, experienced financial guidance,
- The willingness to listen to your dreams for the future and, an opportunity for genuine asset enhancement.
The true belief by our employees of this mission statement contributed to First National Bank being named the “2009 Business of the Year” by the Greater Beauregard Chamber Of Commerce.
I invite you to come by and experience the “new” old bank in town.
John W. Fusilier
