JONESBORO — Cari Beth Wilder will serve as an agriculture relationship manager in Northeast Arkansas for Regions Bank, it was recently announced.

In this role, Wilder will provide financial advice and guidance to farmers and agribusinesses in the area. She’ll also work to expand business relationships in this segment throughout Northeast Arkansas.

Wilder succeeds Jim Tubbs in the ag relationship manager role. Tubbs retired in January following 32 years of service with Regions and its predecessor banks.

“Regions Bank provided me with a rewarding experience in serving the financial needs of our agriculture customers,” said Tubbs. “I’ve had the honor of working with some of the best farmers and agribusinesses in the area. Cari Beth’s background of being raised on a row/crop and a cattle farm, combined with her commitment to providing first-rate service to our customers, will ensure the ag relationships we’ve built over many years will continue.”

Wilder joined Regions in 2017, first serving as part of the bank’s retail team as a financial relationship consultant. She then transitioned to the bank’s commercial banking group as the agriculture relationship management assistant for three years. Prior to Regions, Wilder served as a general service coordinator with Goldman Equipment, LLC, for two years.

Wilder graduated with honors from the University of Arkansas at Monticello, earning a bachelor of science degree in agriculture business.
