“Trustmark has a long-standing commitment to helping our clients establish financial success to build better lives,” said Duane Dewey, Trustmark CEO. “We believe Trustmark’s partnership with Operation HOPE and the City of Montgomery will expand opportunities for financial empowerment to individuals, businesses and families in the Montgomery community.”

An Operation HOPE Inside location is now located at Trustmark’s Carmichael Road location in Montgomery.

“Trustmark associates will continue to look for opportunities to offer financial solutions to all of our customers and offering this unique counseling service through Operation HOPE is yet another way of offering tools for financial success,” said Tod Etheredge, Trustmark Montgomery President. “This partnership allows us to make lasting change in the communities we serve here

Trustmark associates and the Operation HOPE Wellbeing Coach will work with customers in Montgomery to create customized financial plans and small business development.

“Operation HOPE is on a mission to help every American reach their potential and fully participate in the greatest economy on earth,” said John Hope Bryant, Operation HOPE CEO and founder. “I began Operation HOPE nearly 30 years ago with a vision that financial literacy can change the fortunes of those who are less fortunate. I am excited to launch this initiative and build on that vision with this new partnership with Trustmark and the City of Montgomery.”

This is the third Operation HOPE partnership with Trustmark; Operation HOPE coaches are located at Trustmark’s Poplar Plaza location in Memphis, Tennessee and at Trustmark’s Financial CORE location at Metro Center in Jackson, Mississippi.
