First Citizens National Bank, a local Dyer County icon, was just named one of the top extraordinary banks in the United States by The Institute for Extraordinary Banking™.

FirstCNB was recognized with the Institute’s Thank God It’s Monday®! Banky Award for Extraordinary Internal Culture as a result of their high levels of employee engagement and successful injection of fun into the workplace while achieving breakthrough results. In addition, FirstCNB was recognized with the Institute’s Thought Leader Banky Award for Extraordinary Bank Practices, raising the standards of banking practices with excellence in unique and cutting-edge practices while achieving exemplary financial results.

“Our teammates are humbly proud of these prestigious awards from the Best Banks in America Super Conference. We love our teammates, customers and communities that we serve.” says Jeff Agee, Chairman & CEO for First Citizens National Bank. “Our vision is to continue to be people centered and unbelievably good.”

The Extraordinary Banking™ Awards exist to highlight the vital, yet often overlooked, role that local community banks play in our economy. Without a thriving local banking industry, our small businesses and families become nothing more than numbers inside “too big to fail” institutions. The Extraordinary Banking™ Awards recognize the best of what community banks offer to our cities, towns, and nation.

First Citizens National Bank operates from 25 locations in Tennessee. Established in 1889 in Dyer County, the bank today has approximately $1.7 Billion in assets and serves markets throughout 11 Tennessee counties. FirstCNB is a full service community bank offering deposit, lending, wealth management, cash management, trust, insurance, and investments. For more information, visit
