SunTrust Banks in Atlanta has named Susan Somersille Johnson head of its marketing division.

Johnson was most recently the vice president of global marketing for NCR, a financial technology company also based in the Atlanta area. She previously worked as a global head of consumer marketing for Nokia.

"She will be a valuable member of the SunTrust executive leadership team as we grow our businesses and advance our company's purpose of leading a movement for financial well-being," William H. Rogers, the bank's chief executive, said in a press release Tuesday.

Johnson will begin her new role at the $183 billion-asset bank on Aug. 11. She succeeds Rilla Delorier, who this year became an executive in SunTrust's consumer banking division.
