Quitman-based BTH Bank is now part of Origin Bancorp, headquartered in Ruston, Louisiana.
In a previously announced transaction completed on August 1, Origin Bancorp, the holding company of Origin Bank, based in Chudrant, Louisiana, acquired BT Holdings, the holding company of BTH Bank.
Origin now has about $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 banking subsidiaries until the bank merger, which Origin expects to complete concurrently with the data processing transformation 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 serve on Origin Bank’s executive management team.
Get Sorted is running
Longview resident Ashton Rossow started his new business, Get Sorted, to help people organize their lives.
“It’s something I’ve been interested in my whole life,” she said, recalling report cards in which teachers described her as the most organized student who would tidy up other students’ desks. He would also organize friends’ rooms for them.
The Pine Tree High School and Kilgore College graduate is married to her high school sweetheart, Kevin, and has been working at Stitch Fix for four years, a career she started so she could stay home with her newborn. Stitch Fix is a personalized online clothing shopping service.
Rossow, whose website is getsortedwithashton.com, organizes everything from pantries to kitchens, playrooms, garages and bathrooms, and helps people pack and downsize when they move.
“It’s something I really love and enjoy,” he said.
Rossow can also be reached at (903) 806-7531, [email protected] and on Facebook at facebook.com/getsortedwithashton.
