BRADENTON, Fla. — Birmingham, Ala.-based Regions Financial Corp. has hired Cristina Rhodebeck as vice president and senior relationship manager in its Columbia, S.C., corporate trust office.

Rhodebeck, who has more than 16 years experience in the financial services industry, will help Regions expand its trust business, said Kurt Marson, mid-Atlantic regional manager of Regions Corporate Trust.

“She has earned a stellar reputation in the industry and I am certain she will continue to enhance our growth in the South Carolina market,” Marson said.

Rhodebeck is a certified corporate trust specialist and a graduate of Columbia College in Missouri.
