DECATUR, Ill. – Sept. 25, 2018 – Regions Bank on Tuesday announced Bart Rose, Commercial Relationship Manager for Regions, will serve as Market Executive for the bank in Central Illinois and surrounding communities.

As Market Executive, Rose will work with colleagues and community members throughout Decatur, Springfield, Peoria, Bloomington, Champaign and elsewhere to identify opportunities for the bank and its associates to make a meaningful difference in response to local needs and opportunities. Through volunteer service, nonprofit support, delivering financial education to community members, and more, Rose and Regions bankers will consistently reflect the company’s commitment to serving and strengthening Central Illinois.

Further, Rose will play a key role in Regions360, the bank’s comprehensive approach to meeting customers’ unique needs and helping them succeed financially. Through Regions360, bankers take the time to learn the goals of each customer and collaborate with colleagues from across Regions’ departments – such as those providing branch banking, commercial banking, mortgages and investment services. Together, Regions’ teams then provide solutions that are tailored to the customer’s individual needs and preferences.

“Regions Bank is focused on working closely with local customers and listening to the needs of our communities as we deliver financial services and community support that are designed to make a valuable difference in Central Illinois and beyond,” said John Turner, Regions President and CEO. “Bart’s expertise, combined with the experience of our local teams, will help Regions further strengthen its focus on this vibrant area. We are committed to the success of our communities and to consistently developing new ways to serve.”

Rose brings 20 years of financial services experience to the Market Executive’s role and will continue to serve business customers directly as Commercial Banking Relationship Manager in addition to serving as Market Executive.

“Regions is uniquely positioned to offer the comprehensive services of a larger bank while also providing local bankers who are constantly in touch with the needs of individual customers and communities,” Rose said. “Based on the expertise of our teams, and the resources of our company as a whole, we are able to deliver services that are tailored to meet the needs of the people we serve. I am honored to lead our collaboration across Central Illinois and am committed to building on Regions’ strong foundation of community support.”

Rose joined Regions in 2008 and has served as the Commercial Banking Relationship Manager since that time.
