Business banking, like family, is about relationships
Third-generation insurance brokers and brothers, Fran and Harry Johnson of Johnson & Johnson, Inc., worked hard to preserve their family culture while growing their business at the company's headquarters in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. When they went looking for a bank, they didn’t want just any financial institution. They wanted another member of the family.
Founded in 1930, Johnson & Johnson is still a family-owned and -operated business. Offering personal and commercial lines of insurance, it’s built on long-term relationships with insurance agents and offices all along the East Coast. So as owners Fran and Harry Johnson planned for growth, they knew they needed a bank they could work with for a long time. They found their ideal banking partner with Synovus.
“Synovus offers the type of banking relationship we needed—the ability to work through issues and create more business,” says Fran, the president. “They have stuck with us through thick and thin.”

Over the years, the Synovus team has been there to recommend products and services, offer objective advice, and help the Johnsons expand their business around the world. “Synovus has allowed us to take on more acquisitions without experiencing any problems,” says Fran’s brother Harry, the company’s chief operating officer. “They stand behind us.”
Fran agrees, “We're growing like crazy, and Synovus is right there with us. They understand our business extremely well. I can call any time, and we will get what we need.”
