Origin Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Origin Bancorp, Inc. (OBNK), has announced that it has promoted two of its bankers to leadership positions in its Fort Worth market.

Curtis Hamilton has been promoted to an executive position as Fort Worth President. Hamilton has more than 45 years of banking experience, and since joining Origin Bank has been responsible for a significant increase in the bank’s loan portfolio in Fort Worth. In his previous position at Origin, he managed the commercial lending group and was responsible for the bank’s business development of all available bank products, including deposits, loans, treasury management and wealth management of both existing customers and new prospects.

“Curtis is an extraordinary banker with decades of experience in building successful business relationships and mentoring commercial banking teams,” said Warrie Birdwell, Origin’s North Texas President. “His commitment to his clients, his leadership style and his steadfast character give me great confidence in the future of Origin in the Fort Worth market.”

As Hamilton moves into his new role, Justin Holt will take over the management of the bank’s Fort Worth commercial team as a regional executive. Justin has more than 12 years of banking experience and previously worked as a senior commercial banker for Origin.

“I am proud of the success Justin has had with our organization,” said Birdwell. “With his character, passion and energy, I have no doubt that Justin will thrive as the leader of the commercial team. I look forward to the great things he will accomplish in his new role.”

Hamilton and Holt both maintain offices at the bank’s Fort Worth Financial Center, 500 Throckmorton Street in downtown Fort Worth.

Origin Bancorp is the financial holding company for Origin Bank, a more than century old Louisiana-chartered bank, headquartered in Ruston, Louisiana. Origin Bank has more than 40 banking centers located from Dallas/Fort Worth across North Louisiana to Central Mississippi, as well as in Houston.
