Deavenport, 74, who previously received an exemption to serve beyond the company’s mandatory retirement age, will retire from the Regions Board on the eve of the company’s 2013 annual meeting of stockholders. He has served as a director since 1999 and assumed the position of non-executive chairman in 2010, playing a critical role in successfully guiding the company through a period of significant challenges and transformational events. His experience gained as CEO and chairman of the Board of Eastman Chemical Company, as well as his service as director of a number of public and private companies was invaluable in guiding Regions at a critical time in its history.

Hall, 55, has served as Regions’ president and CEO since March 2010. He began his banking career in 1980 when he joined the management training program at AmSouth Bank, which merged with Regions in 2006. He has served in roles of increasing responsibility in areas including Operations, Technology, Consumer Banking, Commercial Banking, and Wealth Management. Hall was elected vice chairman and a member of the Boards of Directors of Regions Financial Corporation and Regions Bank in 2008.

“Earnie Deavenport has provided remarkable leadership to our company, and I’m personally grateful for the astute counsel and guidance he has given me since assuming leadership of Regions,” said Hall. “He has helped guide us through a tremendously difficult environment, and his vision has been integral to revitalizing our company for the benefit of our shareholders, our associates and the communities we serve.”
