Regions Securities Expands Corporate Finance Group

Regions Financial announced Regions Securities has further expanded its Corporate Finance group by hiring two managing directors, Gene Bowles and Daniel Hoverman. Bowles and Hoverman join previous hires including Managing Director Rob Tyndall and others following the 2016 launch of the Corporate Finance group, which provides capital raising and advisory services to Regions’ corporate clients, with an emphasis on the middle market.

Rit Amin, co-head of Corporate and Leveraged Finance said: “We continue to look for ways to better serve our corporate clients and in today’s banking environment, being just a capital provider is not enough. Our clients want strategic and financial advice as they look to grow and build their businesses by utilizing the capital markets. We are excited to add associates with experience across public, private debt and equity markets along with significant advisory capabilities.”

Bowles has more than 20 years of investment banking and capital markets experience, most recently with Cary Street Partners and prior to that, Wells Fargo predecessor Wachovia Securities. His broad transaction expertise includes private capital raising, merger and acquisition advisory, leveraged finance, high yield capital markets, and significant experience working with private equity groups.

Hoverman joined Regions Securities from Houlihan Lokey where he was a senior member of the firm’s Mergers & Acquisition group. Previously Hoverman served with Credit Suisse in Hong Kong and UBS in New York, and began his career as a corporate and securities attorney with Kirkland & Ellis. Hoverman brings over 15 years of experience advising on complex transactions, including public company, international, dual track and similar situations, as well as restructuring and capital markets transactions.

Through its Corporate Banking group, Regions serves public and private companies throughout the bank’s geographic footprint as well as across the U.S. through its Specialized Industry groups. Regions Capital Markets, a division of Regions Bank, provides products and services including syndicated loan facilities, interest rate, commodity and foreign exchange risk hedging. Regions provides advisory and certain capital raising services through Regions Securities, a wholly-owned subsidiary which serves as a broker-dealer to commercial clients and acts in an advisory capacity to merger and acquisition transactions. BlackArch Partners, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Regions, offers merger and acquisition services to its institutional clients and commercial entities.
