Synovus Bank, the G e o rg i a - c h a r t e r e d , FDIC-in­sured bank, to­day an­nounced plans to com­bine two of its bank di­vi­sions — Bank of North Ge­or­gia, based in Al­pharetta, and Bank of Coweta in New­nan.

Synovus ex­pects the con­sol­i­da­tion to be com­pleted early next year. The com­bined division will use the Bank of North Ge­or­gia trade name.

The newly ex­panded Bank of North Ge­or­gia division will have a to­tal of 41 branches in 16 coun­ties. Don Howard will continue in his role as Chair­man of Bank of North Ge­or­gia and Synovus Re­gional CEO, and Rob Gar­cia will re­main as Pres­i­dent and COO of the Bank of North Ge­or­gia division.

Fol­low­ing the con­sol­i­da­tion, Anne Bell, Pres­i­dent of Bank of Coweta, will serve as Re­gional Community Ex­ec­u­tive over­see­ing the Coweta, Fayette, Henry, Rock­dale, and New­ton county mar­kets.

“Bank of Coweta has met the fi­nan­cial needs of cus­tomers and prospects in Coweta County for 40 years and we are proud of the tremen­dous suc­cess this team has achieved,” said D. Copeland, Chief Bank­ing Of­fi­cer of Synovus. “The team has built a loyal cus­tomer base and is highly re­garded for pro­vid­ing ex­em­plary cus­tomer ser­vice and be­ing very ac­tive in the lo­cal community. The Coweta County branches lo­cated in New­nan and Senoia will re­main an im­por­tant part of Synovus’ fu­ture suc­cess.”

“Our team mem­bers will make the tran­si­tion for cus­tomers as seam­less as pos­si­ble, and will continue to of­fer the same level of su­pe­rior cus­tomer ser­vice,” said Howard. “This ini­tia­tive will ul­ti­mately make our or­ga­ni­za­tion more suc­cess­ful in this im­por­tant Synovus mar­ket.”

“By bring­ing to­gether the bank­ing pro­fes­sion­als, ex­per­tise, and re­sources of the two Synovus Bank di­vi­sions as one united team, we can lever­age our tal­ent, a com­mon name, con­sis­tent brand­ing, and ad­ver­tis­ing for fu­ture suc­cess in these mar­kets,” said Bell.

“Our cus­tomers will continue to be served by the same team mem­bers they’ve been bank­ing with for years.”
