Finance Family-Style: Debi Burroughs

Debi Burroughs, The Citizen’s Bank

Tell us a little about yourself.

I am the City Executive for The Citizens Bank Georgetown Market. I also serve as a director on the boards of Burroughs & Chapin Company, Inc., Burroughs Company, Inc., and Chapin Company, Inc. in addition to the Coastal Carolina University Spadoni College of Education Board of Visitors. My hometown is Conway. I moved to the Murrells Inlet area in 1990 after attending college at USC

– Coastal Carolina where I pursued degrees in both business and psychology. Later, I completed my MBA at Winthrop University. Conway is a special place to me, and my parents still live there today. I have many great childhood memories.

Does your best friend have two legs or four?

I have two best friends, one with two legs and one with four – My sister, Georgia, who was named after my great grandmother and Mr. Banks, my cat. I can count on both when I need a sounding board.

Why do you think cats make such great friends and companions?

Pets give such unconditional love. Mr. Banks is there when I get home and gives me a lot of comfort. He hangs out with me every minute I’m home. He is a silly cat and loves to run, jump and swat around the house. It is hilarious! We play chase together – he is so much like a dog! I have had Mr. Banks since he was four weeks old – he is a rescue cat from the humane society. Even though he is strictly an indoor cat, he loves watching the birds and squirrels from the window and will run from one to the other to follow them around the yard.

What is your favorite thing to do with your women friends? Why do you think these friendships are so important?

Every year my sister and I, along with two others, go on a special girls’ trip. My favorite trip was when we went to Costa Rica. We went shopping, took a waterfall tour and even went zip-lining! I think it is important to take that time to bond with friends. We are all so busy, and a vacation together gives us time to catch up and relax. I believe it is so important to be there for family and friends – they are the ones who are always there for us when we need them. Plus we make time to do fun things together that we don’t get a chance to do throughout the year.

What do you love about working for The Citizens Bank? What makes it a great choice for our banking needs?

I will have been with Citizens Bank two years in October, but have been in banking for over 25 years with a background in Commercial Banking, Wealth Management Banking, Consumer and Mortgage Banking. The Citizens Bank is like a family. For us, it’s all about our relationships with businesses and individuals. We have the freedom to help our customers – if it makes sense, let’s do it!

The Citizens Bank has been in operation for 72 years and is where community counts and customer service is our priority. With an ever increasing network of branches and an array of modern financial products available, we still operate upon the same principals of service and commitment that it was founded on in 1943. Solid Traditions, Smart Solutions. We have a great team in our Coastal Region that collectively has over a total of 133 years of banking experience.

We offer a comprehensive mix of Consumer, Commercial, and Mortgage services to meet the needs of our customers. I love the closeness of our banking family and having the ability to assist our customers with all of their financial needs!
