A mill worker at Eagle & Phenix Mill in Columbus, Georgia caught her dress in a piece of machinery. As her dress tore, her life savings, which she had sewn into her hem thinking it was the safest place for her money, spilled across the floor.
G. Gunby Jordan, the mill's secretary and treasurer, happened by and offered to keep her money in the mill safe and pay her monthly interest on the deposits. He soon offered the same service to all the mill workers. These first deposits inspired Mr. Jordan to establish the institution that years later became Columbus Bank and Trust Company, Synovus' lead bank.
Today, Synovus, is a financial services company with more than $26 billion in assets based in Columbus, Georgia. Synovus' bank divisions provide commercial and retail banking, investment and mortgage services to customers in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Florida and Tennessee.
Synovus focuses on its position in high-growth Southeastern markets and commitment to being a great place to work to ensure the delivery of unparalleled customer experiences.
