COVINGTON, LA – Metairie Bank announced Paul A. Myers, IV has been promoted to Northshore Market President.

In that capacity he will assume responsibility for the overall development of Metairie Bank’s Northshore Market, bank reps said. He will serve as its ambassador and primary spokesperson there, and lead efforts to grow the Bank’s presence in the market. He will also act as the Bank’s liaison with commercial, public and nonprofit groups to ensure that community enrichment is at the forefront of its Northshore activities.

“Paul and our entire team on the Northshore will be focused on our mission to provide essential services in a community banking atmosphere,” Ron E.

He serves on the Board of the Children’s Museum of St Tammany.

Myers has a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Southern Mississippi. He and his wife, Shelli, reside in Covington with their two children, Jack and Addison.
