“While my time at Community Bank of Louisiana has not been as long as many of our other Assistant Branch Managers, I am near completing my 3rd year of service.  During this time I have had the opportunity to work at the Fairfield office and build many lasting relationships with both customers and other employees.  Community Bank is truly a community based company that cares for people, their staff and other organizations.  I have seen this first hand and have had the privilege of participating in several local events.  Whether that be a luncheon to inspire women in the workforce, giving back in a charitable donation or recognizing our local law enforcement, I can whole heartedly say that Community Bank Of Louisiana definitely sets itself apart.” — Virginia Williams, Asst. Branch Manager – Fairfield Branch

“I have been in Banking for over 50 years and with Community Bank of Louisiana for almost nine years. It is one of the finest banks I have every worked with.  All of our Branch Managers and Assistant Managers have all been promoted from within the bank except one. If you work hard, you will be rewarded.  Over the time I have been a part of the Community Bank of Louisiana family I have experienced Senior Staff and employees stepping up and supporting several of our employees when the have suffered catastrophic events in their lives. Whether the event is big  or small, we are there for them. When you work for an employer that takes care of their employees, goes the extra mile, works together and gives back to their community, it is the place anyone would be proud to work at. A true Community Bank!” — Sandy Cimino, Senior Vice President – Business Development
