Under Tate’s leadership, Regions will grow its established energy specialized practice group to provide financing, capital markets and strategic solutions to energy companies operating in the upstream, midstream, and downstream segments of the energy industry from offices in Charlotte, N.C.; Houston, Texas; and Jackson, Miss. Additionally, the group will actively cover energy and utility companies operating in the power generation, electric transmission and distribution, natural gas, water, propane, coal, renewable energy and infrastructure segments. Kelly Elmore, managing director focused on the exploration and production sector, will continue to play a leadership role in the Houston office.

“Regions is committed to the energy and power industries and hiring Brian to lead the expansion of our energy and natural resources platform is a key step forward for us and especially for our clients,” Barton said. “Brian’s talent and experience will strengthen our ability to provide value-added solutions to our clients and we are extremely excited to have him on our team.”

Tate joins Regions following a distinguished 24 year career as an energy specialist focused on corporate finance advisory and capital raising in the loan syndications, debt and equity capital markets for companies operating in the energy and power industries. For the past 18 years, Tate served as managing director in the Energy and Power Investment Banking Group for Wells Fargo Securities, where he was instrumental in building the power and utilities practice from its inception. Tate started his banking career at Chase Manhattan Bank in New York serving in the Global Energy, Global Power and Project Finance Groups prior to joining a predecessor to Wells Fargo Securities in 1996. He has also served as an officer in the U.S. Army and Army Reserve. He received a bachelor’s degree in economics and business from Virginia Military Institute and an MBA from New York University.
