BATON ROUGE, La. – Sept. 8, 2022 – Regions Bank on Thursday announced veteran local banker Amy Province has been elevated to serve as the company’s market executive for Baton Rouge and surrounding communities.
As market executive, Province’s leadership will focus on two key areas:
- First, she will collaborate with leaders from Regions’ various business groups to help their teams deliver Regions360, the bank’s comprehensive approach to meeting customers’ needs. Through Regions360, bankers get to know the unique needs of clients and collaborate with colleagues in Consumer Banking, Commercial Banking, Mortgage Banking, Wealth Management, and other teams to develop holistic financial solutions.
- In addition, Province will guide the collaboration of colleagues and community members to advance the bank’s community engagement initiatives throughout the area. Regions’ strategy for community engagement prioritizes investments and volunteerism in three key areas:
- Economic and Community Development
- Education and Workforce Readiness
- Financial Wellness
“Regions Bank highly values our business and community connections in Baton Rouge, and for many years, Amy Province has been at the heart of our success in serving this dynamic area,” said John Turner, President and CEO of Regions Financial Corp. “She is the leader we need to help move our teams, our clients, and our community partners forward. Amy has spent two decades building lasting relationships – and she has done it all while serving civic causes that benefit many people. She brings superior local insights and experience to this role, and we are excited to build on our legacy of service through her leadership.”
Province will continue serving as senior vice president and Commercial Banking relationship manager for business clients throughout the area. She specializes in developing financial solutions for medium-sized business clients from Hammond to Acadiana. Specifically, she works with clients on matters of credit, underwriting, and cash management as a Certified Treasury Professional.

Province succeeds longtime Regions market executive Danny Montelaro in this leadership role and considers him a mentor.
“Danny was instrumental in my development as a banker and a leader, and he inspired a level of achievement and service that made the members of his team want to be our best for our clients and our neighbors,” Province said. “I am honored to build on Regions’ commitment to deliver customized financial services for the people and businesses we serve. I also look forward to strengthening community engagement from the grassroots level.”
In fact, Province is already taking steps to accomplish that goal.
“To help further sharpen our focus on community engagement, I have brought together an advisory council of local Regions associates who are passionate about investing in the places where we live and work,” Province added. “We’ve begun a series of roundtable discussions to identify the places where we can use our resources and experience in ways that promote inclusive growth across the Baton Rouge area.”
Province first joined Regions in 2005 as a relationship manager. After leaving for another banking role in 2013, she returned to Regions less than three years later. Province holds a bachelor’s degree in Finance from Southeastern Louisiana University.
Province is currently the finance chair of the board of directors for the YMCA of the Capital Area and will assume a two-year term as board chair in 2023. She is a member of the Baton Rouge Area Chamber board, an alumna of the Business Report Leadership Academy and has served on the board of governors for the City Club of Baton Rouge, YWCA Baton Rouge, Manship Theatre, and Capital Area United Way’s Women United council.
