BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Feb. 7, 2018 – Regions Bank has been recognized by Greenwich Associates with 22 Excellence Awards based on how Regions is serving small-business and middle-market banking clients.

Greenwich Associates conducted research in 2017 to identify banks performing at a statistically differentiated level compared to peers. Banking customers nationwide were asked to rate their interactions with various financial firms. Regions’ performance led to 22 individual awards, representing a substantial year-to-year increase over 2016 when Regions received 9 Greenwich awards for the same categories.

Bill Horton, head of Commercial Banking for Regions, attributed the increase to Regions placing a clear focus on bankers developing deeper relationships with clients – while using their financial experience to create customized solutions to meet those clients’ needs.

“The credit for these awards goes to Regions bankers who are in our communities every day offering personalized services and working hand-in-hand with customers to help them reach their financial objectives,” said Horton. “Regions is committed to consistently making banking easier for the people and businesses we serve. We appreciate Greenwich recognizing the dedication of our bankers, and we look forward to building on our success in 2018 and beyond.”

Greenwich Associates recognized Regions with 17 awards in the Greenwich-defined Middle Market category (businesses with annual sales of $20 million to $500 million) and five in the Small Business category (companies with sales between $1 million and $20 million).

In addition to the 22 Excellence Awards, Regions earned recognition for “ease of doing business” and several relationship management categories, including responsiveness, knowledge of cash management services, effectively coordinating product specialists, frequency of banker visits and understanding the industry.
