Sea Island Bank Begins Transition to Synovus Branding

Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Sea Island Bank today begins transitioning to the Synovus brand name. Signage and other legacy branding at all Sea Island Bank branches will be updated with Synovus branding through the end of March. Sea Island Bank is one of 26 non-Synovus branded bank divisions to complete the footprint-wide brand transition, which will conclude in June 2018.
“When Sea Island Bank expanded into Savannah in 2004, the Bank was already part of the Synovus family.  We’re proud of the reputation we’ve built as a community-based and customer-focused bank,” said Ken Rabitsch, Synovus market executive for Savannah. “Adopting the Synovus name while maintaining our local, relationship-centered delivery model will increase awareness of our regional presence, our financial capabilities, and our ability to meet the needs of customers and prospects.”
Sea Island Bank was founded in Statesboro in 1901. The bank’s 1991 acquisition by Synovus was among more than 60 that would make Synovus Georgia’s second largest bank, with $31 billion in assets and a presence in five Southeastern states.
