2020 40 Under 40 Yearbook: Jay Titus


Posted online

Then: Senior Vice President, Commercial Lender/Relationship Manager, U.S. Bank
Now: Missouri Division President, BancorpSouth Bank

Jay Titus has banking in his blood. He’s worked in the industry for 26 years and, perhaps surprisingly, at only three banking institutions during that time.

Titus is currently Missouri division president for BancorpSouth Bank, where he’s served for 12 years – the longest stint of his career. He spent about seven years each at U.S. Bank and Bank of America. At U.S. Bank, he was a four-year recipient of the Pinnacle Award recognizing the top 10% of producers bankwide.

Managing BancorpSouth’s operations in Springfield and St. Louis the past five years, Titus is responsible for commercial lending, credit administration, retail branch administration, private banking and strategic planning. He also leads the bank’s wealth management, mortgage and insurance lines of business.

What most people might not know, the Drury University graduate came up through a Sam Walton scholarship and worked for Walmart and Sam’s Club stores for the first seven years of his career.
