APR 10, 2023 - 7:35 am
Regions Bank named Mark Evans the company’s first market executive focused exclusively on San Antonio, further expanding its presence in Texas. Evans is assuming this new role following a decade leading Regions’ commercial banking strategies in north Louisiana and east Texas.
Regions has grown its presence across Texas in recent years in cities such as Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, TX, and Austin, TX. Evans will focus on expanding the bank’s portfolio of business clients in Bexar County and surrounding counties in Texas.
“Mark Evans is a highly regarded leader who’s known for building client relationships that are rooted in trust and a deep, personal commitment to helping those clients succeed,” John Turner, president and CEO of Regions Financial, said. “San Antonio is a vibrant, growing city, and we see tremendous opportunities to connect more businesses with the competitive services that differentiate Regions in the marketplace. Mark’s experience and vision make him the ideal leader to guide Regions’ expansion in San Antonio.”
“When clients see how a relationship with Regions gives them access to such a wide and growing range of financial solutions, they quickly see why we stand out,” Evans said. “During times of change and uncertainty, it’s perhaps more important than ever to have a solid banking relationship with financial professionals who understand the needs of the business community and are backed by the resources of a bank that has met clients’ needs through many economic cycles. We bring the strength and resources of the entire bank to meet the needs of our clients, and I am honored to lead Regions’ strategies to serve more businesses in San Antonio and the surrounding communities.”
Evans will also begin establishing relationships with civic and community organizations in San Antonio to further the bank’s mission to make life better for the people and places it serves.
“We have a culture of putting people first in all we do,” Evans said. “It’s something I’ve always been incredibly proud of and it’s what I look forward to fostering as we introduce Regions to new clients and community partners across San Antonio.”
Evans began his banking career in 1986 with the former MBank Dallas, where he was a commercial credit analyst before transitioning to serve as a commercial relationship manager. He then moved to Shreveport, LA, to work as a commercial lending sales manager for Regions’ predecessor, AmSouth Bank. He then served as president of IBERIABANK’s Shreveport, LA, market for six years before returning to Regions in 2012.
