Trustmark National Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Trustmark Corporation, is pleased to announce that a strategic collaboration agreement has been entered with Commonwealth National Bank as part of the Project REACh Initiative with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
The Project REACh Initiative, standing for Roundtable for Economic Access and Change, launched on July 10, 2020, to “create meaningful partnerships that help Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs) remain a vibrant part of the economic landscape and important resources in their communities.”
“Through our shared vision, Trustmark and Commonwealth will be able to expand economic opportunities in minority and underserved communities,” said Duane Dewey, Trustmark President and CEO. “With over 130 years of success in the financial service business, we are grateful for this new opportunity to demonstrate our core values – integrity, service, accountability, relationships and solutions.”
“During my first bank Presidency opportunity in the 1990’s, Trustmark’s mentorship was instrumental in the success of our banking operation. I am extremely excited about renewing this relationship with Trustmark at Commonwealth National Bank,” said Sidney King, Commonwealth’s President and CEO. “We believe that this important partnership with Trustmark will allow us to better serve the needs of our customers and improve the overall health of the community we serve.”
