The team of the new Citizens Bank opening in Richmond Hill this week includes Dayanne Fort, Catherine Riggs, Jon Seagraves, Brad Brookshire and Julie Ray.

Citizens Bank & Trust will open the doors Wednesday to its first location in coastal Georgia – right here in Richmond Hill.

10064 Ford Ave. in Ford Plaza will serve as Citizens Bank’s temporary location while they construct the permanent facility on Town Centre Boulevard.

Local banking executives Brad Brookshire and Jon Seagraves are eager to revitalize the face of local, community-oriented banking in Richmond Hill and neighboring communities and are leading the new bank in expanding the coastal Georgia market.

“Citizens Bank will offer state-of-the-art online banking capabilities supported by innovative technology and capital strength to become the Bank of Choice in Richmond Hill,” said Seagraves, coastal market executive.

Dayanne Fort, Catherine Riggs and Julie Ray have also joined the bank.

“Experienced bankers offering quality service will be ready to greet you this Wednesday,” said Brookshire, coastal market executive. “We’re ready to meet our community’s need for a bank that’s well-versed in local leadership.” 

Brookshire and Seagraves are backed by local investors and Citizens Corporation, which has been owned by the Stuckey family from Eastman, Georgia, since 1985. Local banking veteran G. Mike Odom serves as managing director of Stuckey Family Holdings and as chief executive officer of Citizens Bank. Based in Eastman, Citizens Bank is a $130 million community bank with offices in Eastman, Rhine and Cochran.
