Hank Holmes Promoted to President of Cadence Bank

HOUSTON, Oct. 9, 2014 — Cadence Bank today announced that Hank Holmes will assume the role of president, designating him a member of the bank’s board of directors. Holmes has been with Cadence since February 2011, serving on the bank’s executive leadership team as business services executive and president of its Texas region.

“I’ve worked with Hank throughout his career, and know him to be a proven and effective leader,” said Paul Murphy, CEO & president of Cadence Bancorp, LLC. “To run an organization of our size, it takes a strong team with a healthy amount of grit.

“Hank has played an important role in the bank’s growth, and in this new position, he will have the opportunity to elevate that success through enhanced client development and process improvement,” added Cadence Bank CEO Sam Tortorici. “He has a remarkable ability to remove hurdles and empower teams to get things accomplished. For an entrepreneurial bank like ours, that’s a powerful asset.”

We have significant expertise to leverage bank-wide as we provide our clients with a complete banking relationship and holistic solutions.”
