BXSI Expanding New Orleans Footprint with Addition of Scheinuk

TUPELO, Miss., May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BancorpSouth Insurance Services (BXSI) announces the addition of Edward B. Scheinuk, CPCU and his team to the agency. Scheinuk recently served as President of Eustis Risk Management Resources in Metairie, Louisiana. This Louisiana addition marks the second Metairie BXSI office location and greatly enhances BXSI's ability to serve clients in and around the New Orleans area.

According to BXSI President Markham McKnight, this expansion is part of the agency's long-term growth strategy to expand its successful business in Louisiana and to diversify the portfolio of BXSI and its parent company, BancorpSouth Bank.

"We are pleased to welcome Ed (Scheinuk) and his team into the BXSI family," McKnight said. "The decision to establish an office to be a part of our legacy is one we never take lightly, but this process was eased considerably because of the people we know who will be servicing clients there."

Scheinuk has 35 years of insurance industry experience. He provides risk management and insurance advice to regional, national and international commercial accounts. Additionally, he provides litigation support and expert witness services as well as ad hoc advisory services to fee-based clients. 

"We are excited to be a part of an organization that has a strong history in Louisiana that dates back to 1882," Scheinuk said. "This is an opportunity to bring clients a wealth of new resources while working with a group of people whose vision and philosophy regarding plan management and client service are in tune with our knowledge-based client service philosophy and practice."

The new BXSI office is at 321 Veterans Memorial Boulevard, Suite 200, Metairie, Louisiana 70005, the same location where Scheinuk's team previously operated.
