Regions Names Turner to Head Corporate Bank

Regions Financial announced it has realigned its business units and geographical leadership, creating a General Bank, which consists of the businesses that serve retail, wealth management, and small business customers, and a Corporate Bank, which consists of the businesses that serve middle-market and larger commercial clients.

John Owen, head of Business Lines, has been named head of the General Bank, and South Region president John Turner has been named head of the Corporate Bank. Separately, John Asbury, who previously led the Business Services group, has resigned due to family considerations that require relocation.

John Turner has served as president of the South Region since 2011, when he joined Regions. Turner was previously president of Whitney National Bank and Whitney Holding Corporation and served on Whitney’s bank and holding company boards of directors from 2008 until 2011. Turner joined Whitney in 1994 as its Alabama regional president after serving in senior consumer and business positions with AmSouth Bank.
