BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Regions Bank has named Kate Randall Danella head of Private Wealth Management, a division of the Regions Wealth Management Group. Danella joined Regions in 2015 as the Wealth Strategy and Effectiveness Executive, responsible for overseeing the development and implementation of business strategies across the Regions Wealth Management Group. In her new role, Danella is responsible for leading a team of Private Wealth Management professionals providing banking, trust and investment management services to affluent and high-net-worth individuals and families. Danella succeeds Anne Copeland, who is leaving Regions to pursue executive coaching opportunities. “Since joining Regions, Kate has worked extensively across our Wealth Management business groups and bank partners to identify new and innovative ways we can serve our clients and help them continue to build, protect and preserve their wealth. Her top focus is a positive client experience – one that’s customized to meet the needs of each individual we serve – and we are pleased to have a leader of her caliber who is prepared to assume this important role,” said Bill Ritter, head of the Regions Wealth Management Group. “Kate’s strong background in wealth management, investment management and strategic planning will position us well to continue expanding our business throughout the markets Regions serves.” Prior to joining Regions, Danella served for 13 years as vice president for Capital Group Companies, a global wealth management organization managing more than $1.4 trillion in assets. During her career at Capital Group, she was a senior sales and service leader for Capital’s institutional business, senior marketing leader for the global marketing organization, and strategy and business manager for the American Funds mutual fund business. A native of Tuscaloosa, Ala., Danella earned a Master of Business Administration degree from Harvard Business School. She also holds degrees from the University of Cambridge as well as Vanderbilt University. “Regions Private Wealth Management has developed an outstanding reputation for helping clients reach their financial goals by delivering customized solutions and tailored advice based on client needs,” Danella said. “We have a highly skilled and experienced Private Wealth Management team that is passionate about serving our clients. I look forward to working even more closely with our team to bring more of Regions’ comprehensive services and financial insights to benefit our clients.” Copeland joined Regions in 2012 and was named head of Private Wealth Management in 2013. During her tenure with Regions, Copeland played an important role in integrating the company’s legacy Personal Trust and Private Banking businesses into the rebranded Private Wealth Management Group. “Anne has made many significant contributions to the Wealth Management Group, and she has laid the foundation for continued success in the years to come. We are truly grateful for all that Anne has helped Regions accomplish throughout her time with the company,” Ritter said. “With more than three decades of experience in business and the financial industry, Anne has a great deal to offer as an executive coach, and we wish her the best.” With $85 billion in assets under administration, Regions Wealth Management has experienced strong growth, increasing households, assets under administration and revenues. Regions established the Wealth Management Group in June 2011, integrating its Trust, Private Banking, Asset Management and Insurance units within a single group.
