NEW YORK  — Hancock Whitney Corporation participated in the Nasdaq opening bell ceremony to open the stock market on Monday, May 16 at the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square. John Hairston, the bank’s president and CEO, led the ceremony alongside bank board members and executives.

“The last time we visited Nasdaq in May 2018, we were celebrating a landmark moment in the history of our company as we transitioned from Hancock Holding Company to Hancock Whitney Corporation,” said Hairston at the event. “Today, we are glad to be here again to celebrate two corporate milestones. … Not only did we celebrate 10 years since the merger of our two grand banks (Hancock Bank and Whitney Bank), we also marked 30 years of being traded on the Nasdaq exchange.”

Hairston also noted that Hancock Whitney was recently named one of “America’s Best Banks” by Forbes.

Dating back to the late 1800s, Hancock Whitney has offices and financial centers in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Texas. It offers traditional and online banking; commercial and small business banking; private banking; trust and investment services; healthcare banking; insurance services; and mortgage services. The company also operates a loan production office in Nashville.
