Can Two Legacy Banks Become a Digital Banking Leader?

In late 2019, BB&T and SunTrust combined to become the 6th largest bank in the country, serving 10 million households. Looking at the strategic and financial benefits of the merger, the mission was to preserve the strong cultures of the legacy organizations, while using the combined scale and cost savings to build best of breed systems, processes and digital capabilities.
