Renasant currently has 171 locations in Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida.

"I'm proud to announce the completion of our merger with KeyWorth Bank, which greatly enhances our presence in the North Georgia and Atlanta market area. KeyWorth is a high quality commercial bank, with a strong credit culture and an attractive client base that provides us with additional scale and commercial banking expertise in the Atlanta market," said Renasant Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, E. Robinson McGraw. "We are excited that KeyWorth is now officially part of Renasant Bank."

At this time, KeyWorth clients will be able to continue conducting their banking business as usual, including but not limited to, using existing branches, debit cards, checks, ATMs and making loan payments until conversion is complete. The Company has set up an FAQ for clients to obtain useful information about the transition at

Renasant Corporation is the parent of Renasant Bank, a 112-year-old financial services institution in Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida and Georgia.

“We look forward to a bright future of stronger growth, prosperous communities, and lifelong relationships,” explains Chairman, President & CEO, E.
