Merger partners BankAmerica Corp. and NationsBank Corp. last week said NationsBank's William A. Hodges would be responsible for all global client real estate banking and finance activities at the combined bank.
Mr. Hodges would oversee all origination, structuring, mortgage-backed trading, and distribution functions. He would also look to expand the combined bank's equity and advisory capabilities focused on the real estate industry.
Mr. Hodges would report to Edward J. Brown 3d, who was previously named president of the combined bank's global finance business.
BankAmerica, based in San Francisco, and NationsBank, based in Charlotte, N.C., announced April 13 that they plan to do so. They expect to do so Oct. 1.
