I was completely impressed by the group assembled for the panel. We even had a 2010 Oracle Titan Award Winner: MidSouth Bank.

I'll highlight the other customers soon!MidSouth Bank is a community bank and focuses primarily on offering commercial and consumer loan and deposit services to individuals, and small and middle market businesses in south Louisiana and southeast Texas.
