Community Bancorp Announces the New Cadence Bank

Birmingham, Ala. – Community Bancorp will merge its banking subsidiaries, Superior Bank, N.A. and Cadence Bank, N.A., into one strong regional bank on Nov. 11 to form the new Cadence Bank, N.A. At the same time, Community Bancorp, LLC, will now be known as Cadence Bancorp, LLC.

With nearly $4.1 billion in assets, the new bank will employ 1,200 people at more than 100 branches throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas, with headquarters in Birmingham, Ala. and corporate offices in Starkville, Miss. and Houston, Texas.

“The merger introduces a strong and energized competitor to the marketplace,” said Paul Murphy, chief executive officer of Cadence Bancorp and chairman of the new Cadence Bank. “Some of the most experienced professionals in the banking industry have come together to create a best-of-class bank. These are bankers who are dedicated to making Cadence an exceptional banking experience for customers and an unrivaled work environment for our employees.”

Customers of the current Cadence and Superior banks will experience no interruption in service during transition to the new Cadence Bank. Customers will notice a fresh in-branch experience as employees highlight new products and services over the coming months and as branches feature new signage and collateral material in the coming weeks.

“Tailoring the customers’ experience by listening to their needs will be the central focus of our efforts,” noted Sam Tortorici, chief executive officer of the new Cadence Bank. “Building on Cadence’s 126-year history and through a focus on localized customer service and commitment to engaging the community, we hope to enhance our customers’ business and personal financial results by hearing their needs and crafting sound financial solutions.”

The well-capitalized union will result in improvements to technology, including the introduction of mobile banking to Superior customers in Alabama and Florida, as well as enhanced treasury management services for businesses. As the new Cadence Bank further evolves over the months ahead, delivering innovative technology and financial solutions will cement the new Cadence Bank as an industry leader among both customers and employees.
