Hi, April, We’re BankSouth!

It all began when April crossed paths with Lorie Petersen, who had attended one of her speaking events at the Chamber of Commerce. After the event, Lorie and April connected in the parking lot, where Lorie shared her enthusiasm for her speech and referred her to speak at an upcoming BankSouth employee event.

Impressed by April’s expertise and speaking skills, BankSouth invited her not just once but twice to speak at their annual Kickoff event. This further solidified April’s interest in the bank and sparked her curiosity about the exciting things happening within BankSouth’s community. It was then that April began exploring the offerings of BankSouth.

April’s Personal BankSouth Experience

Driven by her desire to align her financial needs with a bank that shared her values, April decided to slowly transition her accounts to BankSouth. Each interaction with the BankSouth team left a lasting impression on her, and she was consistently impressed by the exceptional service and personalized attention she received. From the warm welcome at the branch to the genuine interest in her business, BankSouth exceeded her expectations.

How BankSouth Helps Grow Her Business

BankSouth has played a role in helping April grow her business. When she asked her clients how they heard about her, many of them mentioned Lorie Petersen from BankSouth. This testament to the bank’s commitment to supporting its customers and fostering growth resonated deeply with April.

It Became a Family Affair

April Farlow’s positive experience with BankSouth not only influenced her own banking decisions but also had a significant impact on her mother, Nancy Whirley.

After initially transferring her personal accounts to BankSouth, Nancy was continuously impressed with the exceptional service and support she received. The bank’s unwavering commitment to her financial well-being ultimately led Nancy to make the unexpected decision to move her business accounts as well. BankSouth’s dedication to customer satisfaction and their genuine care for Nancy’s needs proved to be the driving force behind her decision, reaffirming the trust she placed in her banking partner.
