Client Testimonial

“The bank provides efficient, friendly customer service and all the abilities of a large national bank but with small-town service. ”
- Grant Cornwell, President, Rollins College

“When the pandemic hit, I was immediately in touch with my banker Paul Jessen to let him know what we were seeing. I told him that the news reports were correct and that all the events we were scheduled to support had indeed been cancelled. Paul and I have a great relationship that includes regular communication in good times and bad. Paul and Synovus were proactive and diligent in allowing us to keep our 55 employees working and getting paid. Some of the help included helping us get our first and second PPP loans as well as Main Street financing. I know many banks steered clear of the Main Street program. While it is difficult and cumbersome, it has been enormously helpful and an important part of our ability to continue providing our high level of service to our customers.” - David Goldsmith, CP Communications
