Rachel Whitley
Rachel M. Whitley

Market President, Myrtle Beach


For Rachel, banking is integral to a community’s development. “Large and small businesses and non-profit organizations would have a very difficult time operating, if it weren’t for the fundamental role that banks play as suppliers of capital, holders of deposits, and providers of solutions for financial intermediation.” She knows what she’s talking about – she’s worked for Synovus for 44 years to help customers in the Coastal Region of S.C. make things happen. Rachel earned a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of South Carolina @ Coastal Carolina College, completed graduate studies at Webster University, and graduated from the School of Banking at Louisiana State University. She has been recognized as a Rotary International Paul Harris Fellow and has received a S.C. Senate Resolution in Recognition of her dedication and involvement in the local community. Her hobbies are golf and refurbishing old furniture.

C.W. "Chuck" Garnett

Division CEO


Born in Columbia and raised in Charleston, Chuck knows South Carolina from the mountains to the coast—a fitting background for the leader who oversees our statewide presence. He began his banking career in 1984 and joined NBSC (now known as Synovus) in 1993. Over the years, his responsibilities have expanded from Upstate Regional Executive to Division CEO. “At Synovus,” Chuck says, “our bankers believe in giving back to their communities as well as playing a role in helping their communities grow and prosper.” He’s a perfect example of this philosophy in action.
