Trustmark National Bank, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Trustmark, introduced a new line of business, equipment finance, in its specialty banking division based in Atlanta.

“We are pleased to add equipment financing to our competitive and comprehensive catalogue of products and services,” Monica Day, president of institutional banking at Trustmark, said. “Our new equipment finance business will enable Trustmark to serve a broader range of commercial businesses and assist clients nationwide in obtaining assets to grow their business.”

Trustmark’s equipment finance team will be led by Joe Hines, who joined Trustmark in June as managing director of equipment finance. With a 25-year career in the industry, Hines has experience in equipment finance and management.

In addition to adding Hines, Trustmark named Jason Center director of equipment finance originations. Also joining the team are Sara Higby, senior manager of equipment finance operations, and Patty Culos, equipment finance underwriting manager.

“Our team of accomplished professionals has the experience, skills and talent to help commercial clients of all sizes and types reach their equipment objectives and achieve their financial goals,” David Shutley, senior vice president and director of specialty banking at Trustmark, said. “Customers will be able to acquire large equipment loans and leases through our credit offerings while enjoying Trustmark’s best-in-class customer service.”
