Regions expands throughout region

The merger of Union Planters and Regions banks became official Friday, April 22, with the unveiling of the new sign at the Cedar Bluff office on North Peters Road.

“We’ve taken the best features of both banks and put them into one,” Cedar Bluff branch manager Christley Chambers said. “Even the new logo is a combination of the gold and green colors and the design of the two bank logos.”

“It’s an exciting time for Regions associates and customers in Knoxville,” East Tennessee group president Jim Piercey said. “The Regions vision is to help our customers and communities realize their dreams by anticipating, understanding and meeting financial needs through responsive associates who have the ability to build effective solutions.

“We are very proud to be a part of the Regions team,” Piercey added. “This is a great partnership … great for the associates … great for the community.”

The Knoxville area Regions launched a major advertising and public relations campaign recently with newspaper, television and radio ads. Part of the campaign includes special promotions on checking accounts, free Regions Platinum Visa CheckCards and the new Regions Rewards program among others.

Piercey added that Regions prides itself on being a community-focused bank with local leadership. Headquartered in Birmingham, Ala., Regions has more than 800 offices and 1,700 automatic teller machines throughout the network.

The bank systems, including more than 135 Union Planters branches located in Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, northern Alabama, southern Kentucky, and East and Middle Tennessee, merged in July 2004. The remaining branches encompassing a 15-state region are scheduled for conversion later this year.
