A Banking Heritage
The Mabrey family’s ownership of the bank is a story that began long before it became the community bank people know today.
The Mabrey family has been involved in banking since 1906, when G. W. Mabrey served on the Board of Directors for Citizens National Bank of Okmulgee. In 1909, Carlisle Mabrey Sr. became a teller and assistant cashier for the bank. He worked at the bank for many years and in 1943 was named Chairman of the Board. Carlisle Mabrey Jr. bought a controlling interest in the bank in 1966 and became President and Chairman of the Board that same year.
In 2004, Citizens Bank of Okmulgee joined with the unrelated Citizens Security Bank in Bixby, an institution founded by the Brown family in 1924. The union brought together two strong community banks that had been serving Oklahomans for nearly 180 combined years.
With their strong commitment to the core values of “professionalism, stewardship of community resources, high performance, integrity, reliability and teamwork,” the Mabrey family continues to provide customers with personalized service and strategic partnerships. These values are now carried out by the bank’s third and fourth generation of the Mabrey family who is actively involved in the bank’s leadership, operations and mission.
On March 2, 2015, we became Mabrey Bank. The purpose was simple – to remind customers that we are family owned, locally operated, here to stay, and ready to serve.
With their strong commitment to our core values and the communities we serve, the Mabrey family continues to guide Mabrey Bank with leadership and vision:
