Thursday night, Lamar National Bank was honored by the Greater Celina Chamber of Commerce as the 2019 Best Business, in recognition of its outstanding contribution to the community of Celina, Texas.

The Celina location was opened in 2016 as a Loan Production Office. In January of 2018, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency approved this location as a full-service bank branch. This was the first new branch of Lamar National Bank in almost 20 years. The staff of the Celina branch were recognized for their commitment to Lamar National Bank’s motto of Relationship Banking at its Best.

“The eight employees of our Celina bank exemplify teamwork and deliver excellence in the customer experience every day.  This award was a wonderful reaffirmation of those efforts,” said Greg Wilson, President and CEO.

Lamar National Bank will break ground on a new 7,000 square foot bank on Preston Road in Celina on May 13, 2019.
