Joshua Holt

Vice President of Information Technology

Joshua is the Vice President of Information Technology at
First State Bank. He has spent his entire career in IT, providing support for a
variety of small and medium size businesses, financial institutions, and
government agencies. Joshua joined the First State Bank team in 2009 as the
Systems Administrator, moving into the position of Vice President a little over
a year later.

His interest in Computers began when Joshua’s parents
purchased their first family computer. He was eleven years old and was immediately
intrigued by technology. It was a fairly common sight to see him ride his
bicycle up to the local library in Overton, Texas and check out all sorts of
books on Computers. He began his formal training in Information Technology at
Kilgore College, focusing on Computer Repair. Throughout his career, Joshua has
obtained several industry certifications from Microsoft, IBM, Hewlett Packard,
and Comptia.

Joshua and his family are proud to call Athens, TX their
adopted home town. He and his wife have four children, and they actively serve
in the community through their church’s outreach programs.
