SALT LAKE CITY – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Bank and regions The DIY store loan EnerBank USA announced on Friday that the takeover of EnerBank by Regions had received official approvals and will be completed with effect today.
EnerBank employees come from Regions as part of the Consumer Banking Group. Regions Bank is a subsidiary of Regions Financial Corporation, one of America’s largest full-service providers of private and commercial banks, asset management, and mortgage products and services.
Scott Peters, Senior Executive Vice President and Head of Consumer Banking Group for Regions, said EnerBank and their team are an ideal match as Regions accelerates its strategy to become the leading homeowner lender. With a customer base spanning across the United States, EnerBank serves contractors and homeowners through a range of loan programs and financing solutions that support a wide range of home improvement needs.
“The addition of EnerBank’s exceptional team and cutting-edge technology will help Regions add even more value to customers looking for convenient, competitive solutions for efficient home improvement financing,” said Peters. “In the past few years we have seen tremendous demand not only for mortgage and refinancing solutions, but also for new options for financing home renovations. The services provided by EnerBank will allow regions to offer a wider range of options as part of our focus on being the homeowner’s premier lender. ”
Since 2002, Salt Lake City-based EnerBank has offered leading home loan programs to US-based contractors as well as corporate strategic partners in the home improvement industry. As a pioneer in specialized home finance, EnerBank has worked with hundreds of loan program sponsors, including thousands of home builders, served over a million homeowners, and funded more than $ 12 billion in home improvement projects.
EnerBank will maintain its headquarters in Salt Lake City, with many team members moving into parts of 650 Main, a modern Class A office and retail complex under development in the downtown area. The division will continue to be led by Charlie Knadler, who moves to Regions as part of the Consumer Banking Group.
“Today begins a new journey as part of a strong and united team at Regions Bank,” said Knadler. “Together, we will expand home improvement credit options, products and services to maintain our leading position in the industry. We look forward to serving contractors and homeowners across the country under the Regions Bank brand. And we’re excited to be part of an organization that invests in long-term growth and creates even more value for the customers and communities we serve. ”
EnerBank will continue to operate under the EnerBank brand in the coming months; However, contractors and sponsors can expect a gradual transition of the brand identity to the regions over time.
