Eddie Myles

Cadence Bank announced earlier this month that Eddie Myles has been named to the bank’s advisory board for Starkville.

The Clarksdale native has worked for the OCH Regional Medical Center Wellness Connection for the last 26 years, where he currently serves as the director of Wellness.

Myles is a member of the IDEA Health and Fitness Association and is a certified instructor for Adaptive Fitness, Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program, CPR, Promise kickboxing and spin classes.

Myles received his bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology from Mississippi State University.

He has served on the Starkville-Oktibbeha Consolidated School District Board of Directors for 12 years and is also active in Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity.

He and his wife, Andrea, have two children, Gabe and Matt.

“My wife, Andrea, and I have been a part of the Cadence family since 1993,” Myles said. “We trust the integrity of the employees and appreciate the hometown atmosphere,” said Myles.

Myles joins current advisory board members: Jeff Adkerson, Nelle Cohen, Jennifer Cougle, Dr. Wesley Ferguson, Jack Forbus, Dr. John Forde, William Hilbun, Pat Lane, Dr. Andrew Martin, Markeeta Outlaw, Dr. Mimmo Parisi, Dr. Allison Pearson, Jeff Read, Dr. Roy Ruby and Dr. David Shaw.

The bank’s advisory board is led by Mississippi bank President Jerry Toney and Jimmy Abraham, vice chairman of client and business relations.

“Myles’ professional experience coupled with his long-time involvement in the community bring a unique perspective to the existing board,” Toney said. “He and his entire family have been an integral part of Starkville and Mississippi State University for many years, so his insight on how Cadence can continue supporting the future direction and growth of the Golden Triangle is invaluable.”
