CEO’s post-retirement plans still not settled

 

Early on as chairman & CEO, Richard Hickson set out to make Trustmark a multi-state bank and financial services company. He leaves behind a regional bank poised for yet more growth.

Early on as chairman & CEO, Richard Hickson set out to make Trustmark a multi-state bank and financial services company. He leaves behind a regional bank poised for yet more growth.

Richard Hickson says his Trustmark workload has left him little time to decide what he’ll do in retirement beyond involvement in his two principal civic causes – Millsaps College and St. Dominic Hospital.

Two other things he knows for certain. He’ll be 67 and a full-time Mississippi resident.
He said his interests are likely to take him in any number of directions.
 “I am interested in so many things,” said the chairman and CEO of Jackson’s largest bank.
“I’m still working from early in the morning until late, sometimes six days a week for Trustmark. 
“I really haven’t answered the question myself whether I will have any day-to-day business company related involvement after I retire.”
Though he will step down as CEO, Hickson will remain as chairman until the board of directors names a new one at its spring meeting.
