Synovus Named One of America’s Most Reputable Banks in American Banker’s Annual Survey of Bank Reputations

COLUMBUS, GA., JUNE 28, 2018 — For the fourth consecutive year, American Banker and Reputation Institute have named Synovus one of America’s most reputable banks. Of 40 banks included in the publication’s annual Survey of Bank Reputations, Synovus ranked in the top 10 among both customers and non-customers. Synovus has ranked in the top 10 with customers and non-customers since its first appearance in the survey in 2015.

Now in its ninth year, the annual Survey of Bank Reputations provides a detailed analysis of the components that together formulate corporate reputations, and how different banks rate on those measures. Of seven reputational dimensions measured by Reputation Institute, Synovus was one of only three banks to consistently rank in the top five for each dimension.

“We congratulate those banks that have consistently achieved a leadership position,” said Brad Hecht, senior managing director of the Americas for Reputation Institute. “Synovus is one of the few banks that achieve a high level of consistency across critical measures.”

The list of America’s most reputable banks is compiled annually by American Banker and Reputation Institute, the world’s foremost research and advisory firm focused solely on corporate reputations. The results and related analysis can be found on Reputation Institute’s website and on American Banker’s website.

Synovus Bank, a Georgia-chartered, FDIC-insured bank, provides commercial and retail banking, investment, and mortgage services together with its affiliates through 250 branches in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Florida, and Tennessee. Synovus Bank was recognized as the “Most Reputable Bank” by American Banker and the Reputation Institute in 2017. Synovus Bank is on the web at, and on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
