The Mississippi Bankers Association annually honors Mississippians with an astounding 40 years of service to the banking profession. At its 2014 Annual Convention, the Mississippi Bankers Association recognized Trustmark’s own Martha Wilbert as a member of the 40 Year Club.

Previously she has served as the branch manager of Brookhaven Main Office, Highland Square Branch and Wal-Mart Branch and served as the manager of the loan department.

“Martha is a dedicated professional that exemplifies the core values of Trustmark daily and is a great example for her fellow associates to follow,” Stan Foster, Trustmark’s community bank president of Brookhaven, said. “Martha’s commitment to providing her customers with the highest level of customer service is unparalleled, and she is a true asset to the organization.”

Wilbert is a member of the Chamber of Commerce Board and the Mississippi Bankers Association. She is a member of the Kings Daughters Foundation Board, the Kingsborough Elderly Housing Board and Willing Hearts Circle.
