In addition to the recognition, Regions donates $1,000 in the name of the recipient to a charity of the winner’s choice. Fleeman has chosen Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee. A video profile of Fleeman is available on the Regions Financial YouTube channel. Patsy Fleeman is a part of the go-to agricultural lending team in Robertson County, Tenn. Her farming background helps her tailor products for her clients and often drives her to go the extra mile to meet their needs; she once worked from home when the bank was closed in a snowstorm, so a farming customer could buy supplies at a rare bargain price. Fleeman’s colleagues say she’s dependable, very supportive and always willing to help. They see that same commitment in her work with Big Brothers and Big Sisters, where she mentors two sisters who lost their father. It was a devastating experience for the girls, and they needed help coping with their loss. Then they met Fleeman. “It blew me away to learn what an impact Patsy is making on the lives of these girls,” said Neil Sutherland, Regions’ Business Banker in Springfield. “Now Patsy shows me text messages from their mother showing awards and achievements they are reaching in school. It’s just so impressive.”
