Mississippi-Based BancorpSouth Changes Name to BXS Insurance

BancorpSouth Insurance Services, Inc., headquartered in Tupelo, Miss., and a subsidiary of BancorpSouth Bank, has undergone a name change as of Jan. 1, 2018 and is now BXS Insurance.

According to BXS Insurance President Markham McKnight, the change is being made to unite the agency’s 630 teammates across nine states as one organization to better assist its clients.

“BancorpSouth Insurance Services traces our roots to 1882,” McKnight said. “Its growth was the result of local and regional agencies becoming part of a larger entity. That growth continues today. While we will always be mindful of the legacies these agencies have, now is the time to ensure we are building a collective brand and legacy with one vision while still providing our clients the best service possible.”

McKnight added that the new name will allow colleagues to promote BXS Insurance with one voice, regardless of what office or state they call home.

BXS Insurance, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BancorpSouth Bank, is licensed in all 50 states and currently operates 31 offices, with 630 insurance and risk management professionals.
