F.N.B. Corp. in Pittsburgh has selected more executives from Yadkin Financial in Raleigh, N.C., to take on leadership roles for its new markets in the Carolinas.
The $21 billion-asset company said in a press release Thursday that Andrea Bunn will serve as regional banking executive for western North Carolina, while David McCullen was named regional banking executive for the eastern part of the state. The duo will share responsibilities for the company’s retail banking strategy in its new regions.
Mark Patafio, Yadkin’s consumer banking manager, was named senior sales manager for small-business banking. Patafio will oversee business development and relationship management for small-business clients in North Carolina.
F.N.B. will enter the Carolinas after it buys the $7.5 billion-asset Yadkin. The companies agreed to the $1.4 billion deal in July and it is expected to close in the first quarter. "Local leadership has always been central to F.N.B.'s business model, and we are excited to continue to build out our proven approach in North and South Carolina with the exceptional talent joining us from Yadkin,” Vincent Delie Jr., F.N.B.’s president and chief executive, said in the release.
F.N.B. said in August that it would assign four Yadkin executives to key posts in the new regions.
