BB&T Corp. in Winston-Salem, N.C., has promoted John Williams to president of its newly acquired Virginia-West Virginia-Kentucky region.
The region consists of Matewan BancShares' operations. BB&T bought Matewan, which is based in Williamson, W.Va., Aug. 27.
Mr. Williams will be president of Matewan until systems conversion is completed in April. That is also when Daniel R. Moore, Matewan's chairman, will retire.
Mr. Williams was retail banking manager for BB&T's south-central region, which is based in Pinehurst, N.C. He joined the banking company in 1983 as a business services manager and has also worked as a city executive.
