Synovus’ humble beginnings date back to a Georgia textile mill and a simple act of kindness. One day, a worker’s hard-earned savings spilled from the hem of her dress after it became entangled in factory machinery. Taking notice, an executive offered to secure her money in the company vault and pay her interest – a service soon extended to all workers at the mill. Their deposits marked the beginning of the company that would become Synovus.
Synovus is one of the strongest regional banks in the Southeast with over $30 billion in assets.
