'JD Bank' changes name

The following is a news release from Jeff Davis Bank & Trust Co.:

Jeff Davis Bank & Trust Co. has officially changed its name to JD Bank. The new name reflects how its customers commonly refer to the company.

The bank's updated signage will reflect the name change and include the refreshed logo at its 18 branches, which includes the recent acquisitions in Evangeline and St. Landry parishes, across southwest Louisiana.

"For years our customers have nicknamed us JD Bank, so we decided to make it official," says President and CEO Boyd Boudreaux. "It speaks to the relationship we have with the people we serve – a kind of relationship only available through community banking."

JD Bank will soon expand to 20 branches with the opening of two new branches in Lake Charles in June. Grand opening events will be held in July at the new locations and will include refreshments and giveaways. Event details will be released in the upcoming weeks.

Serving Southwest Louisiana for more than 65 years, JD Bank offers full-service personal and business banking with 18 branches. For more information, visit www.jdbank.com or call (800) 789-5159. Member FDIC. Equal Housing Lender.
