ATLANTA, Ga. – Jan. 17, 2024 – Regions Bank on Wednesday formally unveiled its newest investment in Atlanta. Bank leaders joined the Metro Atlanta Chamber at a ribbon-cutting for the bank’s new Westside Village at Moores Mill branch.
As its name reflects, this latest addition to Regions’ local branch network is part of a popular mixed-use residential and retail development that has been changing the face of Atlanta’s upper west end along Marietta Boulevard since 2017.
Development of Westside Village has been sustained. Yet, work remains to bring more investments into the area, connecting people and businesses with a broader range of locally based services – including banking and financial wellness.
Regions leaders hope the presence of the company’s newest branch will help bridge the gap.
“We are committed to serving as a trusted neighbor and a valuable contributor to the tremendous growth taking place on Atlanta’s upper west side,” said Bill Linginfelter, Atlanta market executive for Regions Bank. “But beyond building on the growth of our business in Atlanta, we see this new branch as a catalyst for helping more members of the community benefit from recent investments in the area. Yes – we’re here to provide a highly modern, personalized banking experience. We’re also here to help level the playing field through financial education and community partnerships so more people can achieve success.”

That community engagement focus echoed during grand opening festivities for the Westside Village at Moores Mill branch. Regions presented a $5,000 grant to Agape Youth and Family Center, which serves under-resourced families through after-school youth programs and day programs for seniors and disabled adults. Regions has supported Agape through school supply drives and other donations in recent years. To mark the new branch opening, bank associates will deliver catered lunches to Agape day program participants and catered dinners to Agape after-school participants.
“Each year, Regions has the opportunity to make key investments in communities where we can make a significant impact,” said Mia Hubbard, Consumer Banking Executive for Regions Bank. “Working with organizations like Agape aligns with our strategic priorities of advancing economic and community development, supporting education and workforce readiness, and increasing financial wellness.”
Westside Village at Moores Mill branch manager Takeila Jackson says the branch is a welcome addition to the community.
“We’ve seen a steady flow of customers and business owners. They tell us, ‘We’re so happy you’re here. I’m so thankful to have a banker accessible to me right where I live, work and play,’” Jackson said. “They no longer have to drive 25 minutes to South Atlanta or Buckhead or Decatur to take care of their branch-banking needs. The convenience of banking with Regions is now right within their reach.”

That convenience includes no waiting in a traditional teller line. Instead, as soon as people enter the Westside Village at Moores Mill branch, they are greeted personally by a Regions banker who listens to their needs and connects them with colleagues who can assist with everything from basic transactions to offering in-depth conversations to help assess their financial health. This innovative approach to personal service is powered by a solution called the Regions Greenprint® plan.
Through Greenprint conversations, Regions bankers help individual and small-business customers create personalized plans that offer recommended next steps to reach their financial goals. In addition to Greenprint, technology at the branch includes a walk-up and a drive-thru DepositSmart ATM®. Each machine can accept deposits of cash or checks at any time, day or night – in addition to cashing checks for Regions customers on the spot.
“Our commitment is to make life better by improving the financial well-being of our neighbors and delivering a personalized path to financial confidence from someone who cares,” Hubbard said. “We believe that’s how we will earn the right to be the primary bank for more people in our Atlanta community.”
