CNB promotes Castellanos and Jimenez

Central National Bank recently announced it has promoted Guadalupe Castellanos and Olivia Jimenez.

Castellanos has worked for CNB for five years. He started out as a teller, and most recently was the assistant branch manager at the bank’s 2219 W. Willow location. He was promoted to branch manager and now is at CNB’s 301 South 30th location in Varsity Square by Jumbo Foods’ east store.

Castellanos was born and raised in Enid and graduated from Enid High School. He has an associate degree in pre-med from Northern Oklahoma College.

“Guadalupe has demonstrated great leadership and will be a tremendous asset in bringing awareness to our 301 S. 30th location,” said Debbie Johnson, vice president.

The east side of Enid traditionally has been underserved in the area of financial services, Johnson said. Because of that, CNB has made a strategic business decision to increase marketing activities and events specifically for their Varsity location. CNB opened the South 30th location in 2008 to provide its customers a convenient, east-side location to bank. Varsity, like all CNB locations, is a full-service bank, offering checking and savings accounts, loans, prepaid cards and business banking services.

“Lupe and Olivia will play critical roles in business-develop activities for their branch, Johnson said.

Jimenez has worked for CNB since 2011. She started as a part-time CSR in the bank’s call center. She was promoted to personal banker at the Varsity location. She graduated from Ringwood High School and has an associate degree in business administration from NOC.

“Olivia is just another example of how the bank has been able to hire and grow great people. It’s great when we can promote from within,” Johnson said.
