Lee Ann Petty, Paralegal Team Lead, Receives Regions Bank’s Top Associate Honor

Regions Bank (NYSE: RF) today announced that Lee Ann Petty, paralegal team lead, is the January 2014 recipient of the Regions Bank Better Life Award. The Better Life Award is the top honor given to a Regions associate for outstanding dedication and job performance, as well as exemplary involvement and commitment to the community.

A video profile of Lee Ann Petty is available on the Regions Financial YouTube channel.

An employee of Regions for more than 12 years, Petty manages a team of paralegals and is known for taking them under her wing. She sees it as her top priority to make her attorneys shine. “If I am thorough in my research, if I can give to my attorney all the answers they need, then I’ve done my job,” she said.

Petty’s superiors say all employees can learn from her. “If everybody at the bank put the time, energy and passion into their profession the way Lee Ann puts the time, energy and passion into what she does, it’s incredible the heights this bank could reach,” said Jeff Lee, deputy general counsel for Regions.

For each Better Life Award recipient, Regions donates $1,000 to a charity of the winner’s choice. Petty leads the Red Mountain Theatre Company’s (RMTC) Young Executive Council and she has chosen RMTC for her Better Life Award donation.

Petty’s work ethic and desire to help others succeed are evident in her other volunteer pursuits as well. She is a member of the Junior League of Birmingham, the Birmingham Museum of Art’s Junior Patrons, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Amici – Young Friends of Opera Birmingham.
