The bank has brought on Glenn Haydel and Stephanie Ferry as vice presidents, said Howard C. Gaines, First National chairman and chief executive officer.

Duties assigned to Haydel and Ferry will include establishing and developing financial advisory services and financing structures for issuers throughout Louisiana, Gaines said.
