GLEN ALLEN, Va., July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Essex Bank, the banking subsidiary of Community Bankers Trust Corporation (NYSE Amex: BTC), announced today that it has appointed Jeffery R.

Mr. Cantrell has served as the Bank's Senior Vice President and Senior Financial Officer since 2009.  Prior to that time, he served briefly as Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer for a bank in organization in Georgia.  From 1984 to 2008, Mr. Cantrell was employed with Regions Bank, where he spent the last 13 years as a regional financial manager and most recently in the position of Senior Vice President and East Region Financial Manager.

Rex L.
