“I am confident Anna’s experience, including her clear focus on compliance, plus her strong leadership skills, will ensure Regions’ enterprise approach to compliance risk management remains comprehensive and in consistent alignment with the complex laws, regulations, and guidance that are closely followed by our industry.”

Walton comes to Regions from Union Bank, where he served as Chief Credit Officer and Executive Risk Officer. His 34-year banking career also includes risk management roles at SunTrust, InfiLink and Bank of America.
