Cadence Bank Receives R Clay Simmons Enterprise Award

STARKVILLE, Miss., Feb. 5, 2014 — Cadence Bank was awarded the R. Clay Simmons Exemplary Enterprise Award at the Greater Starkville Development Partnership’s banquet held Monday night.

This highly prestigious award recognizes businesses that have made outstanding contributions to the community and manifested superior business practices.

“It is an honor to be named exemplary, and an even greater honor to serve an exemplary community,” said Jimmy Abraham, vice chairman of client and business relations for Cadence Bank. “We have an amazing team of bankers that truly care about our customers, our community and each other. I’ve experienced this directly, first as a client and now as an associate of the bank.” Excelling in community involvement, Cadence associates in Starkville, Columbus, West Point and Maben logged more than 2,000 volunteer hours in 2013 through their work with Habitat for Humanity, United Way of North Central Mississippi, Oktibbeha County Humane Society, and the T.K. Martin Center, among other charitable organizations. The bank also is an avid supporter of Mississippi State University through scholarships, faculty fellowships and athletic programming.

In addition, Cadence associates personally support numerous local civic and nonprofit organizations financially and as volunteers, with many actively serving as board members.

This award was created in 1995 in memory of R. Clay Simmons, an exemplar of Starkville’s finest in community and business leadership. It is given annually to a business in the greater Starkville area by the R. Clay Simmons Foundation through the Greater Starkville Development Partnership’s Chamber of Commerce Division.
