Meet our team in Rome

Shane Walley

Senior Vice President, Rome Market President

Shane joined Synovus as senior vice president in 2023, bringing more than a decade of banking experience in commercial business and consumer lending. While in his former role, he led a regional bank's office to increased CRA loan production and HELOC production. However, for Shane, banking “means more than numbers.” The Rome native finds true purpose and satisfaction in helping Synovus' business clients succeed. “If I can continue to give back and help others get to where they want to be in life, then I’ve accomplished my goal.” Shane lives at the heart of our Rome community with his wife and two daughters and enjoys golf, snow skiing, and fly fishing in his spare time.
