The boards of directors of Whitney Holding and Whitney National Bank have promoted John Turner to president of the company and the bank.
The office of the president was previously held by John Hope, who became chairman and CEO following the retirement of William Marks. King Milling remains vice chairman of the boards.
Mr Turner recently moved to New Orleans, US to assume the role of executive vice president over line banking activities. He will continue to manage that function.
Mr Hope said: With the promotion of John to president, the company’s succession plan is now complete and we can begin the next chapter in Whitney’s history.
