by Austin Bank 10. October 2019 14:50

This month’s Star has proven himself a true standout . . . an integral part of the Austin Bank organization.  He brings unique value to his team, and is willing to collaborate alongside coworkers with a focus on the success of the company as a whole.  We are proud to recognize Cody Bailey, VP/Relationship Manager in Longview Oak Forest, as the October Star of the Month.

Cody joined the Austin Bank team in 2008 as a Junior Credit Analyst after graduating from Louisiana Tech University with a degree in Finance.  Later moving to Loan Review and Compliance, he became a lender and Relationship Manager in 2013.  Since that time, he has become a top producer in the Longview market and been called upon by management to lead several Bank projects.  He shares his experience and knowledge with new Bank employees by serving as a Mentor and assists in lender training seminars.  Natalie Lynch, EVP/Regional President at Longview Oak Forest, shares, “Cody always has a positive attitude and takes pride in doing a job well.  I know an internal project or loan handed over to Cody will be handled professionally and in a timely manner.”

Team members and customers alike appreciate Cody’s positivity and willingness to come up with solutions.  His consistency, commitment to get things done and honesty all serve to reinforce his well-earned reputation.  However, despite his professional demeanor, beneath it lies a fun-loving personality making Cody quite the practical joker around the office.

A long-time resident of Longview, Cody and his wife, Katie, have four children.  Very active in his community, Cody is an alumnus of Leadership Longview and now serves as Curriculum Facilitator for the program.  In addition, he is a member of the Board of Directors and Treasurer for the Greater Longview Organization for Business and Education and sits on the Longview Public Library Foundation Board.  He and his family attend Mobberly Baptist Church where Cody serves on the Finance Committee.  


“Cody is a valuable member of our commercial lending team at Oak Forest.  He embodies the Austin Bank core values and provides his customers and coworkers the best service possible.”

Natalie Lynch, EVP/Regional President, Longview Oak Forest

"Cody does an outstanding job of attending to his customers needs while being a good steward of the Bank.  He is one of the many reasons why the Bank has an outstanding future."

Jason Petersen, SEVP/Chief Lending Officer, Longview Oak Forest

“Cody always has a smile on his face and seems to put our customers at ease if they come in with issues or problems.  But, he is also the prankster at our office and keeps us on our toes.”

Carrie Boudreaux, AVP/Retail Office Manager, Longview Oak Forest

“Cody exemplifies our dedicated professional employees, taking the extra effort to serve customers and prospects alike.  His interest and teamwork set the tone for all of us.”
