Regions revamps Indiana territory as regional banks reshuffle

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A second regional bank in the metro area in as many months has announced a change in its Indiana leaders and territories.

Birmingham, Ala.-based Regions Bank said Monday that Mike Hart, president for Indiana, Illinois and a portion of Kentucky, will move to St. Louis to take over a newly organized territory. It will consist of Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Western Kentucky.

Indiana gets a new president and new footprint, as well.

Leslie Carter-Prall, a wealth management executive for the bank in Indianapolis, will serve as president of Indiana, along with Regions’ commercial banking offices in Chicago and Cincinnati.

That new territory also will include Jefferson County in Kentucky, and the Illinois counties of Clark, Crawford and Wabash.

Carter-Prall also has experience in retail banking, sales, marketing, training branch management and commercial banking.

Carter-Prall was named to IBJ’s “Forty Under 40” List in 2003.

“Leslie has deep roots in Indiana, and she has been instrumental in the success of Regions’ Private Wealth Management team,” said Ronnie Smith, Mid-America regional president for Regions, which has assets of $117 billion.

Last month, another big regional player announced it was making changes to leaders and to its territory structure.

Cincinnati-based Fifth Third Bank said its Indiana president, Nancy Huber, would retire on May 15. It has tapped veteran banker Steven Alonso to head to the central Indiana region, which will be combined with the bank’s southern Indiana territory.  The head of that affiliate, John Daniel, will retire.

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
