Regions opens relocated downtown branch, Front Street location moves to Main Street

By STAFF REPORTS,

 Regions Bank joined city and economic development leaders last week to cut the ribbon and celebrate the official opening of the company’s newly-relocated branch in downtown Hattiesburg.

“Regions Bank is committed to Hattiesburg, and we are excited to celebrate an important milestone in the growth and development of the downtown area,” said Greg Garraway, Hattiesburg market executive for Regions. 

“We are proud to be part of the ongoing revitalization of downtown. This new branch, along with the future grand opening of our Mortgage Operations Center, will support the long-term growth and success of Hattiesburg and the Pine Belt.” 

The branch at 501 North Main Street replaces a previous Regions branch on Front Street. The new location is part of Regions’ plan to grow its presence in Hattiesburg. 

“We value our strong relationship with Regions Bank and appreciate the company’s continued investment here in greater Hattiesburg,” Hattiesburg Area Development Partnership President Chad Newell said. 

The branch is staffed with Regions professionals who will help customers with general transactions while also offering in-depth conversations to help meet customers’ financial needs. 

Branch Manager Chandler Finnegan, a Hattiesburg native, leads the team of associates at the Main Street branch. 

“Downtown Hattiesburg is where our community comes together,” Finnegan said.
