Whitney/Hancock closing branches announced first week in May
The CEO of Hancock Holding Co., the parent company of Whitney Bank, said today between 40 and 45 branches will be closed within its five-state footprint by the end of the year.
Hancock President and CEO Carl Chaney announced the closures during a presentation at the Gulf South Bank Conference, which is being held this week at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New Orleans. Chaney declined to name the specific markets where the closures will occur as the company is still notifying employees of the plans, but said the closures will have “little impact” on its core New Orleans and Mississippi Gulf Coast markets.
Now we know 3 local branches are involved what might that mean from real estate view point?
