Mike Smith, head of Real Estate Banking for Regions, said the appointment of Such reflects Regions’ continued dedication to supporting affordable housing opportunities.

“Providing financial services that, in turn, enable new affordable housing developments truly represents one of the most powerful ways Regions can benefit clients and communities,” Smith said. “Throughout his time with Regions, Rob has championed superior service while fulfilling our mission to make life better. As a result of his leadership, Regions has facilitated $7.7 billion in affordable housing investments. Katie Such is an integral part of the Regions Affordable Housing group’s accomplishments, and she recognizes the importance of strong relationships with developers, community leaders, and others who are all crucial to the success of creating more affordable housing. Her experience serving on Rob’s team and developing solutions for a wide range of clients make her the ideal leader to build on Rob’s legacy.”

Such joined Regions Affordable Housing in 2016 as head of Distribution and Investor Services. In that role, she led sales and distribution of funds for clients and connected developers and investor clients for key transactions. In 2019, Such was promoted to operations manager, where she oversaw underwriting, investment, legal and asset-management functions for the group. Prior to joining Regions, Such held affordable housing leadership positions at PNC Bank and directed underwriting, asset management and investor relations service teams. She also served as the deputy executive director for the Housing Authority of Portland, now known as Home Forward.

Such earned her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Oregon and a Master of Business Administration from Portland State University.

“Katie is a recognized leader who’s passionate about leveraging her experience to benefit others,” Smith added. “Through her affordable housing leadership, deep relationships and keen insights, we will continue to provide strong value, personalized service and competitive solutions to clients in our Real Estate Banking group.”

“Safe and stable housing opens a world of possibilities for people, and it is an honor to build on the legacy Rob established during his time at Regions,” Such said. “Regions has a strong record of working with large proprietary and multi-investor clients and developers to provide effective solutions that meet their unique goals. The result is helping connect more people with more high-quality housing options.”
