Troy Cloutier, son of MidSouth President/CEO Rusty Cloutier, is an 18-year veteran of MidSouth. He served most recently regional president for the South and East regions and chairman of the Regional Loan Committee and has managed due diligence for the mergers and acquisition team.
In a press release announcing the leadership changes, Rusty Cloutier says, “After a year-long search by a national firm to seek out management that would strengthen our organization and position us to achieve our expansion/growth objectives, we identified the best leadership team from within our own organization and the Acadiana community. We are delighted that Jerry is joining the MidSouth team. Given his extensive industry experience, Jerry will be a valued addition to MidSouth’s efforts to expand through acquisitions and improve operating efficiencies. Furthermore, having Troy in his position of chief banking officer will allow for a more coordinated focus on organic loan and deposit growth. Bringing this talent together fortifies not only MidSouth Bank’s position in the marketplace but also Lafayette’s place as the banking hub in the state.”
