Gretchen Burud Bottrill
Gretchen Burud Bottrill is a Managing Director and Senior Credit Officer with Regions Securities. She spent the first 24 years of her career with Bank of America in a variety of client-facing roles, moving into the risk function in 2004. She now oversees the oil and gas portfolio for Regions Bank and works with teams in Charlotte and Houston to extend credit to energy customers throughout the country.
Gretchen has a special interest in increasing the accessibility of mental health services in Charlotte, as she was widowed in 2008 and could not find local grief counseling or related services. She is a member of First Presbyterian Church and joined the board of Presby Psych in 2021. First Pres is working with Presby Psych to establish a counseling center in Uptown Charlotte that will make mental health services available to underserved populations. She also serves on the board of directors of Veritas Community School in Charlotte.
Gretchen and her husband Mark have four children and are looking forward to grandchildren someday. Gretchen is currently working to support her four horses who enjoy a much better lifestyle than she does.
