Today, April 13, 2017, Cadence Bancorporation, the holding company of Cadence Bank, N.A., began trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “CADE,” marking an historic milestone in our company’s growth journey.
On behalf of all of us at Cadence, we would like to thank our valued customers and collaborators who have shared this journey with us and contributed to our success.
From the beginning, you embraced our vision to be one of the nation’s top performing banks by focusing on long-term client relationships and a differentiated level of service. You have appreciated the value we’ve delivered – a value that comes from talented, entrepreneurial bankers who are intensely committed to addressing your needs in a focused, responsive, resourceful and authentic manner.
Behind the scenes, our collaborators have helped, too, by building technology that’s as responsive as we are, and that meets our clients’ challenges head on.
Our culture has been built, first and foremost, around being responsive to customer needs. This commitment is what has provided us with our greatest competitive advantage, and contributed to more than $4.5 billion in organic growth in less than five years.
While we are now a publicly traded company, our commitment to you, our valued customers, remains as relationship-focused as ever. Our actions will still be guided by the fundamental core values that got us where we are today: Do Right, Own It, Embrace We and Fresh Thinking. And you will continue to inspire and motivate us to exceed expectations by finding new and improved ways to deliver a better banking experience for every client.
Have there been bumps along the road? Sure, but we never doubted we had the tenacity and perseverance to overcome these challenges, and be stronger because of them.
So, again, we say thank you. It has been a shared effort.
As we take this next step as a public company, we are excited about the opportunities the future holds for us, and we look forward to continuing this journey with you.
Paul B. Murphy, Jr.
Chairman and CEO
