Rudy Walker, Consumer Sales Manager, Receives Regions Bank's Top Associate Honor

February 28, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Entertainment Newsweekly -- "I want to share everything I learn with my team and push them to perform at their potential," Walker said. "If you want others to be successful like you want to be successful, it will blossom, and there's nothing you can't accomplish together."

Lifelong mentors - including his father, late mother, and football coaches from Pop Warner days through his college career - instilled a drive for excellence in Walker. He pays their investment forward by striving to be the best he can be in all areas of his life - from being a husband and father, to working with and coaching others at Regions.

"Rudy is competitive, but in a way, that brings out the best in everyone," said Earl Connell, consumer banking executive for Regions in West Tennessee. Connell added that Walker is very humble. "Some people think they have all the answers, but Rudy is always willing to rethink, always wants to make himself better."

Walker gives tirelessly to the Memphis community. An avid supporter of the Craigmont High School varsity football team, he attends practice, sponsors pep rallies, and even coaches from the sideline on Friday nights. Walker is the lead fundraiser on the board of the Metro Memphis YMCA. He is also a Sunday school teacher and the founder of the Boys to Men mentor program at his church.

A crowning accomplishment for Walker is working in 2009 to found Veritas College Preparatory Charter School, where he serves as board chair.
