Liza Bernabei Gillan has been promoted to senior vice president-corporate counsel at Citizens First National Bank.

Bernabei Gillan has bachelor of science degrees in administration of criminal justice and sociology from Bradley University.

She received her juris doctor from Northern Illinois University College of Law and graduated both Bradley and NIU College of Law with summa cum laude honors.

Before joining Citizens First National Bank in 2009, she practiced law for Anthony C. Raccuglia & Associates, P.C., in Peru.

“We are fortunate to have someone with Liza’s qualifications and background. Her knowledge and experience will be beneficial in assisting in meeting all the requirements in the ever-changing regulatory environment,” Thomas Ogaard, president and CEO of Citizens First National Bank, said in a news release.

Bernabei Gillan has been an integral part of the bank’s mortgage banking department.

She will concentrate initially on regulatory matters relating to the bank’s compliance needs and employees, act as the main liaison with outside law firms and provide general counsel to management on legal matters.

“I am very pleased to have been given this opportunity at Citizens. While I have enjoyed my time heading the mortgage department for the bank, I look forward to the new opportunities and challenges that this position will present,” Bernabei Gillan said in the release.
