HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Regions Bank cut the ribbon Thursday morning on a newly renovated office in downtown Hattiesburg. The branch is now located in the old Carter Building on North Main Street.
Regions announced two years ago it would move the branch out of its previous location on Front Street to allow for redevelopment of the Kress, Front Street and Forrest Tower facilities.
“Regions Bank is committed to Hattiesburg, and we are excited to celebrate an important milestone in the growth and development of the downtown area,” said Greg Garraway, Hattiesburg Market Executive for Regions. “We are proud to be part of the ongoing revitalization of downtown. This new branch, along with the future grand opening of our Mortgage Operations Center, will support the long-term growth and success of Hattiesburg and the Pine Belt.”
Branch Manager Chandler Finnegan, a Hattiesburg native, said his team is excited about the opportunity to serve the community from the new downtown location.
“Downtown Hattiesburg is where our community comes together,” Finnegan said. “Our branch team is excited to welcome customers to our new branch, and we invite the community to stop by and visit. Our team has a wealth of knowledge and experience that can be helpful at every important milestone in someone’s life.”
This renovation is not the only project Regions has going on in Hattiesburg. The bank says it’s planning to celebrate the grand opening of its brand new 60,000-square-foot Mortgage Operations Center at the intersection of Lincoln Road and Lamar Boulevard in the coming weeks.
“We value our strong relationship with Regions Bank and appreciate the company’s continued investment here in greater Hattiesburg,” Hattiesburg Area Development Partnership President Chris Newell said.
