STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Cadence Bank will lay off 17 workers at its loan operations center in Starkville.
The bank's chief administrative officer, Mark Abernathy, tells the Starkville Daily News (http://bit.ly/NjEbpd) that the layoffs will occur at the end of September.
Abernathy says the Starkville loan operations will be consolidated with the center in Birmingham, Ala. He says the exact date is not firm.
Abernathy says the bank will try to find jobs for those laid off in addition to providing severance packages. He said the laid off workers could apply for jobs at the Birmingham center.
