Quitman-based BTH Bank is now part of Origin Bancorp, headquartered in Ruston, Louisiana.
The previously announced transaction was finalized on August 1, with Origin Bancorp, the holding company for Origin Bank based in Choudrant, Louisiana, acquiring BT Holdings, the holding company for 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 affiliates until the merger of the banks, which Origin expects to complete at the same time as the data processing transformation early in the fourth quarter of this year.
In connection with the merger, Laurie Sirman, president and chief executive officer of BTH Bank, and Jay Dyer, executive vice president of BTH Bank, joined the boards of directors of Origin Bancorp and Origin Bank. They will also participate in Origin Bank’s executive management team.
Get Sorted is launched
Longview resident Ashton Rossow launched her new business, Get Sorted, to help people organize their lives.
“It’s something I’ve been interested in my whole life,” she said, recalling reports of teachers describing her as the most organized student, tidying up other students’ desks. She would also arrange rooms for them as friends.
The Pine Tree High School and Kilgore College graduate is married to her high school sweetheart, Kevin, and has been working for 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 closets to kitchens, playrooms, garages and bathrooms and helps people unpack and downsize when they move.
“It’s 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.
