Kayla Reel was recently promoted to the position of a Mortgage Originator in CNB’s West Region. Kayla joined the Bank in May 2018 as a Customer Service Representative at CNB’s Madison Banking Centre and was promoted to the position of a Personal Banker in May 2020.
In May 2021, Kayla transferred to the position of a Mortgage Group Lending Assistant and served the Bank in that position until she was promoted earlier this month to serve as a Mortgage Originator.
Patty Busbin, Senior Vice President and Mortgage Production Manager, recently commented, “Kayla is a quick learner and a self-learner as well. She is also very disciplined in her efforts to become proficient in all areas of mortgage lending, and very organized in the way she carries out her daily tasks,” Patty added.
Kayla received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration degree from Millsaps College in May 2017 and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Millsaps with an emphasis in Marketing in May 2018. While at Millsaps College, she also enjoyed serving as an Assistant Softball Coach.
She and her husband, Preston, live in Pearl, Miss. and have a 2-year old daughter, Henley. The family attends Hickory Ridge Baptist Church in Florence, Miss.
Kayla commented that she is very excited to be serving in this new role at our Bank. “When I first stepped into banking, I always had an interest in mortgage lending. After I went through the process of buying my house, I knew that a career in this field was what I wanted one day. I am beyond grateful to have this opportunity at Citizens National Bank,” she added. “I would also like to thank Shay Lane, Pear Orchard Bank Manager, for always pushing me to learn as much as I could when I first started at the Bank. She has made a huge impact on my career,” Shay added.
Congrats on this well-deserved promotion, Kayla! .
