F.N.B. Corp. in Pittsburgh has hired an executive to lead its new Charlotte, N.C., office after it completes its deal for Yadkin Financial.

The $22 billion-asset parent of First National Bank named Greg Heaton president of its Charlotte region, according to a Wednesday news release. Heaton was previously executive vice president of commercial banking in Charlotte at CommunityOne Bank, according to his LinkedIn profile. CommunityOne, in Asheboro, N.C., was acquired by the $8 billion-asset Capital Bank Financial in October.

F.N.B. also on Wednesday appointed a total of 10 Yadkin executives to leadership roles in commercial banking in North Carolina.

F.N.B. in July agreed to buy Yadkin for $1.4 billion, allowing the company to enter North Carolina. The deal is expected to close early next year.
