Danella is the only woman from an Alabama bank on the list, which is part of American Banker’s October issue.
“Since Kate joined Regions in 2015, her commitment to innovation and her focus on delivering a superior customer experience have had a meaningful impact on our customers,” said John Turner, president and CEO of Regions Financial Corp.
Danella became head of consumer banking at Regions in May 2022 after serving as chief strategy and client experience officer. Roles at Regions also have included serving as head of strategic planning and consumer bank products and origination partnerships.
Before Regions, Danella held leadership roles at Capital Group Companies.
“By keeping customers at the center of every decision, Kate and her teams are building solid relationships and deeper trust between the bank and our customers,” Turner concluded. “She is a thoughtful, strategic leader who guides and inspires her team to constantly envision how we can raise the bar. And it is rewarding to once again see American Banker recognize and honor her commitment.”
