Origin now has approximately $ 9.78 billion in assets, $ 6.68 billion in loans and $ 7.98 billion in deposits. Origin Bank and BTH Bank will operate as separate bank branches until the merger of the banks, which Origin plans to complete in conjunction with the data processing conversion early in the fourth quarter of this year.
In connection with the merger, Lori Sirman, president and CEO of BTH Bank, and Jay Dyer, executive vice president of BTH Bank, have joined the boards of directors of Origin Bancorp and Origin Bank. They will also be part of Origin Bank’s executive management team.
Get Ordinad is launched
Longview resident Ashton Rossow launched her new business, Get Sorted, to help people organize their lives.
“It’s something that has interested me all my life,” she said, recalling the report cards in which teachers described her as the most organized student who would organize other students’ desks. She also organized their friends’ rooms for them.
The Pine Tree High School and Kilgore College graduate is married to her high school boyfriend, Kevin, and has worked for Stitch Fix for four years, a career she started in order to be able to stay at home with her newborn baby. Stitch Fix is a personalized online clothing purchase service.
Rossow, whose website is getsortedwithashton.com, organizes everything from pantries to kitchens, arcades, garages and bathrooms, and helps people unpack and resize on the go.
“This is something I really love and enjoy,” she said.
Rossow can also be reached at (903) 806-7531, [email protected] and on Facebook at facebook.com/getsortedwithashton.
