Governance Documents

Corporate Governance

Trustmark's governance structure enables the Board to effectively and efficiently address issues such as business growth, human capital and technology. This is accomplished through five Board committees - Audit and Finance, Enterprise Risk, Executive, Human Resources, and Nominating - and through the effective utilization of the Directors' combined wisdom, experience and diverse business knowledge.

Board Mission

The role of the Board is to foster Trustmark's long-term success consistent with its fiduciary responsibilities to shareholders. As part of this role, Trustmark's Board is responsible for:

  • Providing strategic guidance and oversight,
  • Acting as a resource on strategic issues and in matters of planning and policymaking,
  • Ensuring that management's operations contribute to Trustmark's financial soundness,
  • Promoting social responsibility and ethical business conduct,
  • Providing insight and guidance on complex business issues and problems in the banking and financial services industries,
  • Ensuring that an effective system is in place to facilitate selection, succession planning, and compensation of the Chief Executive Officer, and
  • Ensuring Trustmark's compliance with all relevant legal and regulatory requirements.

The Board also adopted a formal mission statement for the Board and its committees to address the governance guidelines and responsibilities of each. Likewise, the Board has adopted codes of conduct for Directors, senior financial officers, and associates.
