SunTrust Private Capital Group in Orlando, a unit of Atlanta-based SunTrust Banks Inc., has hired the former chief investment officer of Cincinnati's Star Bank.

Randy Bateman is now senior vice president and portfolio manager for large personal trust accounts. He reports to Barbara Hipple, president of SunTrust Private Capital.

Mr. Bateman made the move Oct. 1, but SunTrust announced it only recently. Star Banc Corp. bought and assumed the name of Firstar Corp., Milwaukee, on Nov. 20.

Before joining Star, Mr. Bateman was president of MPact Securities in Dallas.

SunTrust Private Capital also hired Edward Berlien as a senior vice president and relationship manager.

Mr. Berlien was a fiduciary and service support manager at BankAmerica Corp.'s NationsBank Florida. He had held the same job at Barnett Bank when NationsBank bought it. Earlier he was a vice president of private financial services at Crestar Bank, which SunTrust bought Dec. 31.
