Hancock Whitney Bank president to retire in March

The president of Hancock Whitney Bank in Gulfport, Miss., is set to retire.

The unit of the $36.3 billion-asset Hancock Whitney said that Joseph Exnicios will also retire as a senior executive vice president at the company on March 1. He joined the bank in 1978 and became president in 2011.

Exnicios “has been a driving force behind our organization’s success as a financial and community partner throughout the metropolitan New Orleans region for the past 46 years,” John Hairston, the company’s CEO, said in a statement.

“While Joe has enjoyed tremendous success as an executive, his greatest gift has been in coaching and mentoring hundreds of young bankers during his many years in service,” Hairston added.

The company did not name a successor in its regulatory filing.
