The Mabrey family's ownership of Citizens Security Bank is a
story that began long before CSB became the friendly community bank
people love today.
Citizens Bank planted its roots in Okmulgee in 1906, where
Carlisle Mabrey Sr. became a teller and assistant cashier. Carlisle
worked at the bank and owned and operated a cotton gin in Okmulgee
until 1948, when he was named Chairman of the Board of Directors of
Citizens Bank. Carlisle Mabrey Jr. then purchased a controlling
interest in the bank in 1966, becoming the President and Chairman
of the Board that same year.
In 1924, Ivan Brown, a Bixby businessman and Harvard graduate,
founded the unrelated Citizens Security Bank & Trust Company in
Bixby. Brown served as the first president, followed by George
Brown, Pauline Boatmun, and Homer Paul.
Homer Paul, in partnership with the Mabrey family, purchased
Citizens Security Bank in 1994. On July 15, 2004, following through
on their agreement, the Mabrey family purchased Paul's interest in
the bank, which gave the family full ownership.
The Mabrey family, combining their assets, brought Citizens Bank
and Citizens Security Bank & Trust Company together on January
1, 2005. Two long-trusted banks became one, and now operate as
Citizens Security Bank under the leadership of our current
President/CEO Carlisle Mabrey III.
With their strong commitment to our core values
and our communities, the Mabrey family continues to provide CSB
with leadership and vision:
