“Duayne Richard is very well known for his banking expertise and his long-standing commitment to South Louisiana and its citizens,” says Whitney’s chief commercial banking executive Edward G. Francis. “We at Whitney Bank are extremely pleased to expand his leadership to include other areas vital to Whitney’s ongoing efforts to help create opportunities for the people and communities we serve. We look forward to Duayne continuing to follow the bank’s 130-year-old core values to help our region and the Whitney organization grow together.”
