The announcement comes as Investar nears completion on its Lafayette headquarters by the Vermilion River on Ambassador Caffery, which is slated to open in the fall and will mark the Baton Rouge-based bank’s continued westward expansion and first location in the Hub City.

“The team we’re putting together to serve the Lafayette area is made up of the most talented and experienced bankers I’ve ever known,” says Investar’s Lafayette Regional President Keith Short in a prepared statement. “By getting to know their customers, or in some cases being reacquainted with them, and by understanding their financial needs and delivering the right solutions, they’re demonstrating that Investar wants to be ‘Lafayette’s bank.’”

LeBlanc, who has 34 years in banking, joins Investar after 14 years at IberiaBank, most recently in private banking, and 20 years at First National Bank of Lafayette. A native of Lafayette, she has studied commercial lending and holds a Series 6 investments license.

Miller, who has 25 years of banking experience, all in the Acadiana area, joins Investar from Standard Mortgage Corporation in Lafayette, having previously worked for IberiaBank as a mortgage loan originator. Miller, a native of Church Point, is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Realtor Association of Acadiana, the Louisiana Realtors Association and the Ragin’ Cajuns Athletic Foundation. She studied business at the UL Lafayette.

LeBlanc joined Investar in 2011 from Capital One Bank, where he served Lafayette customers for 12 years and managed that bank’s Baton Rouge main office for eight years. He returns to the Lafayette market to launch Investar’s retail banking operation. He studied business at Nicholls State University.
