“We are delighted to assume the No. 1 position for deposit share once again,” said Angie Lewis, president and CEO of Citizens First in Rome.

Citizens First experienced a $12.1 million gain in deposits during the year, increasing its market share from 14.93 percent to 16.34 percent.
“We increased deposits in an economic environment that has been quite challenging,” Lewis said.
“We sincerely appreciate the loyalty of our customers and the confidence they place in us each and every day.”
Lewis said the Citizens First team just celebrated its 100th anniversary in Rome.
“We have not wavered and have stayed the course working hard to provide Citizens First customers with exceptional banking service, and this is evidence of their efforts,” Lewis said.
“We look forward to continuing that commitment in the years to come.”
