TUPELO, Miss., Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- BancorpSouth Bank's (NYSE: BXS) Board of Directors appointed Charlotte N. Corley of Starkville, Mississippi as a director of the company, effective October 28, 2020. Corley is the former commissioner of the Mississippi Department of Banking and Consumer Finance (DBCF).
"We're thrilled to add Charlotte Corley to the BancorpSouth Board of Directors," said BancorpSouth Chairman and CEO Dan Rollins. "She is well respected across the banking industry, and we're fortunate to be able to leverage her vast experience and knowledge to enhance our efforts in serving our customers and communities."
Corley retired from the DBCF in January 2020 after 34 years of distinguished service.

During her tenure as commissioner, assets of state-chartered banks in Mississippi increased by nearly 50 percent from $60 billion in 2014 to almost $90 billion in 2019.

Corley earned a bachelor of business administration degree in banking and finance from Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi. She is a graduate of the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University and the American Bankers Association's National Graduate Trust School at Northwestern University.
Corley has been instrumental in shaping the banking industry through her work with the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), where she served as chairman from 2018 to 2019.
