Trustmark expands opportunities in employee benefits and health and
fitness management

The Board of Directors of Trustmark Mutual Holding Company has selected
Kevin Slawin as President and CEO of the nationwide employee benefits
provider. Slawin assumes leadership of the company following the
retirement of Joseph Pray after a 16-year career at Trustmark, the last
seven as CEO. The announcement was made by Trustmark Chairman David
Weick.

"I want to thank Joe for all of his contributions to Trustmark,
specifically his focus on leadership development and on shifting the
company's focus to a longer-term, strategic outlook," said Weick. "With
record surplus and new products and services coming online, Trustmark is
positioned well."

Weick noted that the transition will be a smooth one, as Slawin has been
a member of Trustmark's board of directors since 2016 and has extensive
financial and insurance industry experience.

"Kevin brings a unique combination of experience and knowledge to
Trustmark," said Weick. "He has industry leadership experience across a
number of executive roles, including Chief Executive Officer, Chief
Financial Officer, Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Operations and
Technology. In addition, with his tenure as a director, he knows
Trustmark, its culture and its client-first, caring philosophy.
Trustmark is poised for growth opportunities in its markets, and Kevin
is well prepared to help shape the company's strategy and lead
operational execution."

In addition to serving on Trustmark's board, Slawin has recently advised
private equity and hedge funds on insurance industry-related
acquisitions and investments. Within the industry, he spent 14 years at
Allstate (NYSE:ALL), serving in several executive positions at Allstate
