MONROE — BancorpSouth Bank has announced the promotion of Kevin Koh to president of its Louisiana Region with responsibility for all 29 banking locations in Louisiana with approximately $1.5 billion in deposits and $1.6 billion in loans.
Koh most recently served as the bank’s Northeast Louisiana division president, after he joined BancorpSouth in January 2018, through its merger with Ouachita Independent Bank, where he served as president and CEO.
“Kevin’s experience and results-driven success make him an excellent choice to lead the bank’s efforts across Louisiana,” said BancorpSouth President and Chief Operating Officer Chris Bagley. “His dedication to helping customers achieve their financial goals will be key as he leads our team in the Bayou State.”
