LAFAYETTE, La., Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MidSouth Bancorp, Inc. ("MidSouth") (NYSE MKT: MSL) announced today that Lorraine Miller, MidSouth Bank's Director of Mergers and Acquisitions, has assumed additional responsibilities as Treasurer.


Miller, who initially worked as a consultant for MidSouth Bank since November 2009, joined the bank three years ago as Senior Vice President and Director of Mergers and Acquisitions, at the time a newly created position with primary responsibility for all financial aspects of the acquisition process. Since then she has played a key role helping double the bank's size to nearly $2 billion in assets by guiding it through four transactions, including its biggest to date: a $40 million merger with the 15-branch Peoples State Bank of Many, La.

She retains the M&A Director title and role with the bank and as Treasurer now assumes responsibility for management of its investment portfolio and asset/liability management function.

Miller, who is based in Atlanta, reports to the bank's Chief Financial Officer, Jim McLemore.

From 1986 to 2002 Miller was a senior sell-side equity research analyst following consumer product companies for Robinson-Humphrey and SunTrust Equitable Securities. Her research was recognized through inclusion to the Institutional Investor's All-American Research Team and The Wall Street Journal's All-Star Analysts Team. During this period, she participated in numerous capital market transactions, including both equity capital and debt financing, as well as assisting on merger and acquisition transactions. From 2002 to 2009, she was Senior Vice President and Director of Investor Relations for West Point Home and Security Bank Corp., where she had direct responsibility for all external financial communications, was the primary spokeswoman and a liaison with the board of directors regarding strategic issues including capital structure and acquisitions and divestitures.

Miller earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Emory University and an MBA from Georgia State University. She is a Charter Financial Analyst and member of the CFA Institute and the Atlanta Financial Analyst Society.
