First Bank in Clayton, Mo., has hired a new chief administrative officer.

The $5.8 billion-asset company said in a press release Wednesday that Shelley Seifert would fill the newly created role. She most recently served as executive vice president for integrations and operations at PNC Financial Services in Pittsburgh. She has also held leadership roles at the $317 billion-asset PNC's Cleveland office.

Seifert will oversee several divisions at First Bank, including sales and human resources.

Seifert is "a highly accomplished and forward-thinking executive who has the ability to align people and processes," Tim Lathe, First Bank's president and chief executive, said in the release.

First Bank, a unit of First Banks Inc., has 129 branches in Missouri, Illinois, Florida and California. Terrance McCarthy will retire as CEO of the parent company First Banks in February; he will be succeeded by Lathe.
