St. Louis, Mo – Stacy Regnier, senior vice president, retail strategic programs and business transformation, was named a Rising Star by the Bank Administration Institute (BAI), a non-profit industry organization providing support and resources to the banking sector. Regnier is one of 10 honorees in the inaugural class of Rising Stars.

BAI’s Rising Star award recognizes innovative leaders who are passionate, intellectually curious and driven, yet show empathy, authenticity and positivity. Regnier’s leader, Patty Kellerhals, executive vice president and executive director, retail banking, believes Stacy fits the bill.

“Stacy is an inclusive listener, a forward-thinking leader and has an insatiable curiosity for understanding the ‘why’ of decision-making and strategic planning,” said Kellerhals. “This recognition is well-deserved. We are so fortunate to have her on our team.”

Regnier is not new to recognition from BAI. She was selected as one of BAI’s 100 Emerging Leaders in 2018. Regnier humbly receives this honor and shares her perspective on innovation. “Innovation is a spectrum – finding ways to do things better, finding ways to do things differently, and finding ways of doing different things altogether,” she says. “Whether I’m driving change through small, incremental pivots or big, disruptive changes, I hope to inspire others to find opportunities where we can continuously improve.”

BAI announced the Rising Stars on December 9. You can find the full list here.
