Synovus specialty finance CEO dies in plane crash

Synovus Financial in Columbus, Ga., announced that its specialty finance division CEO died in an airplane crash on Friday. 

The $55 billion-asset Synovus said in a public statement issued Monday that Jonathan Rosen and his assistant, Lauren Harrington, along with his daughter and her friend, were killed in the plane crash.

Rosen and Harrington joined Synovus in 2016 when it bought Entaire Global One, a life insurance premium finance company.

“From day one, Jonathan and Lauren made tremendous impacts on our company and on those who in any way encountered them,” Kevin Blair, Synovus’ CEO, said in the statement. “Their loss will be painfully felt by so many.”
