A shake-up at Shawmut National Corp. has put three top executives on the street. Strategic planner Bharat Bhatt, acquisitions chief John Berger, and Allen W. Sanborn, head of the company's Boston bank, will leave Shawmut National as part of a previously announced restructuring plan, the company said Monday.

None of the three could be reached for comment. But a spokesman for the Boston and Hartford, Conn.-based bank said, "This is basically related to our ongoing effort to reduce corporate hierarchy and make us more customer focused and effective."
