Synovus’ humble beginnings date back to a Georgia textile mill and a simple act of kindness. One day, a worker’s hard-earned savings spilled from the hem of her dress after it became entangled in factory machinery. Taking notice, an executive offered to secure her money in the company vault and pay her interest – a service soon extended to all workers at the mill. Their deposits marked the beginning of the company that would become Synovus.
Synovus is one of the strongest regional banks in the Southeast with over $30 billion in assets. Synovus provides commercial and retail banking in addition to a full suite of specialized products and services including asset-based lending, treasury management, private banking, mortgage services and international banking. These specialized offerings, combined with traditional banking products and services, make Synovus a great choice for all retail and commercial customers.
Synovus Bank was recognized as America’s Most Reputable Bank by American Banker and the Reputation Institute in 2017, and was named “Best Regional Bank, Southeast” by MONEY Magazine for 2016-17.
