Citizens First in Bowling Green, Ky., has appointed a Tennessee businessman and a Kentucky government official to its board.

The $430 million-asset holding company for Citizens First Bank named Kent Furlong to a vacant seat created by the June 22 resignation of Steve Newberry; and it named Jim Henderson to a seat created by the expansion of its board to 12 members.

Furlong, 32, is owner of Hines Furlong Line, a Nashville, Tenn., company that leases and charters inland tank barges to other barge, chemical and oil companies. Furlong is also an executive with Hunter Marine Transport in Nashville, which owns and operates a fleet of inland towboats, hopper and deck barges, sand dredges and terminals on the Cumberland, Mississippi and Ohio Rivers.

Henderson, 45, is the County Judge Executive of Simpson County, Ky., a position equivalent to the county's chief executive and manager. Henderson is also on the executive board of the Kentucky Association of Counties.
