Zakiya Pritchett, Regions Wealth Middle Office leader
Zakiya Pritchett, Wealth Middle Office leader, has been with Regions for 14 years. She was recently promoted to her current role where she leads a team that works with incoming funds received for Regions Wealth Management clients. Her team is also responsible for interpreting a wide variety of transactions for both global and domestic affluent clients.
“I wasn’t really looking for a career in banking when I joined Regions,” said Pritchett. “I first moved into the CD/IRA group from general customer service and learned so much. From there, I moved into Wealth after a few co-workers moved into the Middle Office group, and my best friend encouraged me to apply for an open role.”
“Wealth is a great place to build and grow your career,” said Pritchett. “You gain real life experience and knowledge to help you towards a path to short-term and/or long-term career objectives as well as personal life goals.”
Private Wealth Banking Products and Development Manager Grace Jackson started her career in banking three decades ago but took a two-year detour in 2018 to serve the community as the executive director of YearUp in Greater Atlanta. There she had the privilege of helping more than 800 youth successfully launch into meaningful careers through the organization which offers technical and soft skills training, housing, food and transportation assistance, and education assistance to underserved and marginalized young adults.
“I always knew I wanted to go back to banking and in September 2020, returned to my roots when I joined the Regions Private Wealth Management team,” said Jackson.
Each of the associates shared a common theme in advice they would give to those associates interested in pursuing a career in Wealth Management: Learn everything.
“My advice is to lean all in – learn how all the roles are interdependent and interwoven, learn how we are all connected throughout the business to see how it comes together,” said Jackson. “I get smarter with my solutions when I understand each aspect of the client’s goals.”
“You’ve got to do something that gets you jazzed in the morning.”
