MARTINSVILLE, VA / ACCESSWIRE / March 23, 2022 / Carter Bank & Trust (NASDAQ:CARE) has announced the hiring of financial services marketing veteran Chrystal Parnell to serve as the Bank's Chief Marketing and Communications Officer (CMCO), a newly created position on its Senior Management Team.

Carter Bank introduced the new role to deepen its connection with its shareholders, customers, associates and communities, on the heels of recent market expansion into Greensboro and Charlotte, N.C.

Her strong background in these areas as well as traditional marketing will play an integral role as we move our company forward."
