HOUSTON, Texas – Jan. 23, 2020 – Regions Bank is again expanding its Houston-area branch network as three new locations open their doors.
“Houston is an incredibly important growth market for Regions, and we are proud to build on our investments and reach more people and businesses with our personalized approach to banking,” said Mark Jacobs, Houston Market Executive for Regions. “The branches we have opened over the past 18 months are a reflection of our commitment to making banking easier and more convenient. We are proud to increase our presence across Houston.”
The new Regions locations – at 18801 Somerled Ave. in the Aliana area of Richmond, 17465 Spring Cypress Road in Cypress, and 18831 University Blvd. in the Lake Riverstone area of Sugar Land – all reflect the bank’s latest branch designs.
There is no waiting in a traditional teller line at these branches. Instead, when people arrive at Regions’ newest locations, they are greeted personally by a banker who can meet a full range of branch-banking needs. The result is less time waiting to be referred to other bankers for specialized services and more time spent receiving personal attention from financial professionals who specialize in helping customers reach their own, unique goals.
By expanding our service capabilities, we are making banking more meaningful.
Steve Nivet, Regional Consumer Banking Executive for Regions
Similar designs can be seen in other Regions locations that have opened in the area since the bank announced its Houston-area expansion plans in 2018. Among the branches’ features are Regions Video Banking ATMs. These machines not only dispense cash – they also can accept deposits of cash or checks and facilitate funds transfers around the clock. Further, the ATMs give customers the choice to connect with a Regions Video Banker via live, two-way video for personal service.
Regions Video Bankers are available on weekdays from 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. CT. They are also available on Saturdays from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Sundays from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. and during most holidays.
“Regions is focused on combining the best of both worlds for our customers,” said Earl Connell, Southeast Texas Consumer Banking Executive for Regions. “We are offering advanced technology and digital banking tools, as well as face-to-face connection from local bankers who are in touch with the needs of our communities.”
Regions’ latest branches will celebrate grand openings on the following dates:
- Aliana branch in Richmond: A grand opening scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 25 from 10:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. will include a donation of $5,000 from Regions to the Houston-based Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Foundation of America. In November, the PTSD Foundation of America was chosen by readers of Regions’ news website as their favorite nonprofit serving military members. Based on readers’ votes, the nonprofit will receive one day of volunteer service from Regions associates in addition to the financial contribution.Additionally, the Fort Bend Sheriff’s Department will be on-site showcasing a vehicle for children to gain a close-up view of a law enforcement patrol car. A craft station and a slide with snow will also be available for children.
- Spring Cypress branch in Cypress: A grand opening is scheduled for Feb. 8, also from 10:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Regions personnel will be available to demonstrate the branch’s features and technology. In addition, the bank will have its LifeGreen Big Bike onsite for photos. Lunch will be provided.
- Lake Riverstone branch in Sugar Land: A grand opening is scheduled for Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. In addition to demonstrations of the branch’s features, the Lake Riverstone team will encourage people to capture their photo with the Regions LifeGreen Big Bike and enjoy a catered lunch.
“Our new locations are focused on offering customers the ability to bank when, where and how they prefer,” said Steve Nivet, Regional Consumer Banking Executive for Regions. “By expanding our service capabilities, we are making banking more meaningful. And by providing the expertise of our team members, who offer financial advice, guidance and education, we are making banking more personal. We look forward to welcoming new customers to our three new locations and to the additional branches we’ll be opening later this year throughout the Houston area.”
