Dan Hale

Vice President, Retail Market Manager

With a banking career spanning almost four decades, Dan Hale returned to Synovus in 2018. The company has grown significantly since his original employment in the 1990s, “but the basics of caring for the customer, providing excellent products and services and doing what is right is still the same as it always has been,” he says. “I love being back at Synovus.” He holds a bachelor’s degree in corporate finance from The University of Alabama and a graduate degree from Louisiana State University’s Graduate School of Banking. He has been married to his wife Shasta for 38 years and have one daughter and two grandchildren.
