In 1876, in the back of a hardware store in Verona, Mississippi, a new approach to banking was born – an approach built on longevity and the principle that neighbors should help neighbors. It was based on the idea that to better serve a customer is to understand what is right for them.
We’ve come a long way since then, but our commitment to being Right Where You Are for what matters most in your life is still the same. Here are some important milestones in our company’s history.
At BancorpSouth, a commitment to the communities across our footprint is a large part of who we are. Strong communities build strong banks. In turn, strong banks empower the communities they serve. We make a difference in the areas we serve by working with our customers fairly and responsibly. We invest in communities we’re a part of by supporting economic development, financial education, and by our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
For BancorpSouth, community is everything, and we are committed to supporting the towns, cities and states we call home.
