Brister at Trustmark follows Marilyn Britt
By Bob Arnold
A fourteen-year banking veteran has joined the Wesson branch of Trustmark Bank as Bank Supervisor, moving into the position Marilyn Britt left vacant following her retirement after more than four decades.
Brittany Brister comes to Trustmark after serving at the Regions Bank Brookhaven branch since 2010.
A native of Enterprise, she graduated from Enterprise Attendance Center and studied at Co-Lin before starting her career as an assistant teller and moving up the ranks to become head teller, assistant manager and a relationship banker.
As Bank Supervisor at Trustmark in Wesson, Brister will serve as overall bank manager, while assisting loan applicants, addressing account needs, and working the cash line as needed.
Brister and her husband Blake, who work with Hitachi (formerly ABB) at Crystal Spring, are now residing in the Midway area of Wesson on Sylvarena Road with their two children – Raelynn, 4, and Noah, 1.
Brister started at Wesson Trustmark in September with the departure of Britt, who had risen to Vice President and branch manager there from her initial job as a bookkeeper after graduating from Wesson High School at Co-Lin and studying at the college. During her service at Trustmark, she climbed to job ladder as a teller, head teller, customer service representative, assistant branch manager, branch manager and assistant vice president and finally vice president and branch manger. Except for ten years with Trustmark in Hazlehurst, she worked at the bank’s Wesson branch throughout her career. Her distinguished service had been recognized by the Mississippi Bankers Association, and she received the 2017 Trustmark President Club award. Outstanding Young Women of America also recognized her for her accomplishments.
