Marla exemplifies all the values that Regions holds. She is a model and mentor to many, and I know that we are better – as people and as a company – for her sharing herself so generously with everyone she comes in contact with.
(PRWEB) May 15, 2012
Regions Financial Corporation (NYSE: RF) today announced that Marla Ross, Branch Service Leader in Panama City, Florida, is the May 2012 recipient of the Better Life Award. The Better Life Award is the top award given at Regions Bank to associates for outstanding dedication and job performance, as well as exemplary involvement and commitment to the community.
Coming to Regions in 2000, Ross has distinguished herself to customers and colleagues, alike, gaining a well-deserved reputation for helping others and providing exceptional service. She carried that with her – as well as her strength and perseverance – when she and her family relocated to Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
“Marla exemplifies all the values that Regions holds,” said Michael Menk, Regions city president in Panama City. “She is a model and mentor to many, and I know that we are better – as people and as a company – for her sharing herself so generously with everyone she comes in contact with.”
In addition to exceptional service and her leadership in the branch, Ross is involved in many church and community activities in the Lynn Haven area, as well as being a mother of two.
A video profile of Marla Ross is available on the Regions Financial YouTube channel.
The Better Life Award is presented monthly to a Regions associate who clearly lives the company’s mission to make life better for customers, associates and the communities it serves, and who is an example of the company’s values:
- Put People First
- Do What Is Right
- Focus On Your Customer
- Reach Higher
- Enjoy Life
Regions associates are nominated by their managers and peers for the award. Regions President and Chief Executive Officer Grayson Hall honors recipients at the company’s headquarters in Birmingham, Ala., at a meeting broadcast live to offices and branches in the 16 states Regions serves. In addition to the recognition, associates earning the Better Life Award will receive an additional week of vacation and a crystal award.
