SunTrust Banks is one of the nation's largest banking organizations, serving a broad range of consumer, commercial, corporate and institutional clients. The company operates an extensive branch and ATM network throughout the high-growth Southeast and Mid-Atlantic States, and also serves customers in selected markets nationally. SunTrust's primary businesses include deposit, credit, trust and investment services, and through various subsidiaries they provide mortgage banking, insurance, brokerage, investment management, equipment leasing and capital markets services.
SunTrust's lineage can be traced back to the Farmers Bank of Alexandria, Virginia, founded in 1811. But its more direct local ancestor is the Commercial Travelers' Savings Bank, which was founded in 1891 and later reorganized as the Trust Company of Georgia. The modern incarnation of SunTrust was a result of the 1985 merger of Trust Company of Georgia with SunBanks of Florida.
The company's hub is its SunTrust Plaza headquarters tower downtown, but job seekers will also find opportunities at the bank's Georgia Operations Center in Stockbridge, their Atlanta Center office downtown, and many other local and regional offices and banking centers located throught the metro area.
