Meet Stacy Lardizabal, a veteran of the U.S. Army and a Mortgage Loan Officer for Regions Bank.
After a successful 27-year career in the military, Lardizabal retired from the U.S. Army and sought a new career path combining the skills she had learned during her years of military service with her expertise in business and accounting. Upon retiring, Lardizabal participated in Hiring our Heroes, a national program connecting members of the military community with American businesses. Regions Bank is a corporate participant in the program, which provides a valuable opportunity to recruit top talent.
Since joining Regions, Lardizabal has made an impact for customers, translating her military skills and experience to the mortgage industry. She says of Regions, “They’re making sure that you are equipped with what you need to be successful. And they help guide and mentor.”
“The culture in Regions is very warm, it’s very open,” continued Lardizabal. “(Regions) wants to see you succeed in this business.”
