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. A Tilted Kilt at a water park themed hotel? Who planned that one? I guess the Dad's need something to do while the kids are on the water slides.

  2. Don't come down on the fair for offering drinks. This is a craft and certainly one that belongs in agriculture due to ingredients. And for those worrying about how much you can drink. I'm sure it's more to do with liability than anything else. They don't want people suing for being over served. If you want a buzz, do a little pre-drinking before you go.

  3. I don't drink but go into this "controlled area" so my friend can drink. They have their 3 drink limit and then I give my friend my 3 drink limit. How is the fair going to control this very likely situation????

  4. I feel the conditions of the alcohol sales are a bit heavy handed, but you need to realize this is the first year in quite some time that beer & wine will be sold at the fair. They're starting off slowly to get a gauge on how it will perform this year - I would assume if everything goes fine that they relax some of the limits in the next year or couple of years. That said, I think requiring the consumption of alcohol to only occur in the beer tent is a bit much. That is going to be an awkward situation for those with minors - "Honey, I'm getting a beer... Ok, sure go ahead... Alright see you in just a min- half an hour."

  5. This might be an effort on the part of the State Fair Board to manage the risk until they get a better feel for it. However, the blanket notion that alcohol should not be served at "family oriented" events is perhaps an oversimplification. and not too realistic. For 15 years, I was a volunteer at the Indianapolis Air Show, which was as family oriented an event as it gets. We sold beer donated by Monarch Beverage Company and served by licensed and trained employees of United Package Liquors who were unpaid volunteers. And where did that money go? To central Indiana children's charities, including Riley Hospital for Children! It's all about managing the risk.
