Regions Bank has made Tricia Johnson the company's market executive for St. Petersburg, Clearwater and surrounding communities.
Johnson succeeds Tina Gilmore, who was recently named as Regions' Consumer Banking executive for the Greater Gulf Coast, the bank says.
According to Regions, Johnson's banking experience began in Illinois in 1989, advancing through branch management, regional manager and mortgage consultant roles before joining Regions in Peoria, Illinois, in 2014.
There, Johnson oversaw 19 Regions branches in central Illinois and Iowa before moving to Florida two years ago to manage the bank's Nature Coast market. In January, Johnson became senior vice president and consumer banking manager covering the St. Petersburg–Clearwater market.
"In St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and throughout the Tampa Bay region, we have a tremendous opportunity to build on our growth," says John Turner, president and CEO of Regions Financial Corp., who added that the market was "rapidly growing."
Johnson serves on the St. Pete Chamber Governance Board, volunteers with United Way and is a member of Regions Bank's Tampa Bay DEI Network.
Regions has $154 billion in assets and operates approximately 1,250 banking offices and more than 2,000 ATMs.
