The People’s History of Renasant Bank

When it came time for Renasant Bank’s pioneering CEO Robin McGraw to hand over the reins of the bank, his team decided it was time to update the history book.

Years before, Renasant Bank hired a local history professor to write the early history of the bank. But since then, the bank had changed names, expanded to nearly 200 locations throughout the Southeast, and grown to more than $16 billion in assets managed, making it one of Forbes’ top 100 banks year after year.

As one of the bank’s brand ambassadors, they hired me to take the original manuscript and turn it into something that would sit on bookshelves around the region for decades to come.
