In addition to the recognition, Regions donates $1,000 in the name of the recipient to a charity of the winner’s choice; Erwin has chosen Royal Palm School of Lantana, Fla., where his wife teaches special needs children. A video profile of Erwin is available on the Regions Financial YouTube channel. Erwin joined Regions in 2003. His team works with customers who are behind on payments to the bank and often face losing their business or all that they own. “We do the best we can to help our customers ultimately survive tough times,” said Erwin. “We take great pride in giving them time and seeing their business turn around.” Erwin leads associates in the same fair and courteous way he deals with customers. “Joe is extremely supportive of others and willing to assist,” said Steve Nivet, Regions’ South Florida area president. “The benefit of being hands-on is that Joe is coaching and building stronger bankers while creating better outcomes for his team, our stakeholders and customers. What he does each day truly makes life better, and we’re so proud to see him receive this special recognition.”
