F&M National Corp., Winchester, Va., is splitting between Alfred B. Whitt and Charles E. Curtis the top jobs now held by the departing Jack R. Huyett.
Mr. Huyett, president and chief administrative officer of the $2.4 billion-asset holding company and its lead bank, F&M Bank Winchester, will retire Dec. 31. Mr. Whitt and Mr. Curtis will be vice chairmen of both.
In addition, Mr. Whitt, now senior vice president, senior financial officer, and secretary, will become president and chief financial officer. And Mr. Curtis, president and chief executive of F&M National's northern Virginia region, will become chief administrative officer of F&M National and F&M Bank Winchester.
Mr. Whitt joined the company in 1980, when it established F&M Bank Massanutten; he was an organizing director and the bank's first president.
Mr. Curtis came in last year, when F&M National bought Fairfax Bank and Trust, of which he had been president since 1984.
Mr. Huyett came to F&M in 1989, when it bought Ranson, W.Va.-based Blakeley Bank and Trust Co., of which he was president. He held that title at the renamed F&M Bank Blakeley until 1992, when he took over the top jobs at the holding company and its lead bank.
