The Banc Corp. in Birmingham, Ala., has hired SouthTrust executive Kirk Wiles as president and chief executive officer of two branches acquired last week.

On July 13 the $700 million-asset company bought a Huntsville, Ala., holding company, BankersTrust, which owned BankersTrust of Madison in the Alabama town of that name.

That bank's two branches, in Huntsville and Madison, have been turned into branches of its new owner's The Bank. Mr. Wilson will run them and report to James A. Taylor Sr., who is chairman, president, and CEO of The Banc Corp.

Mr. Wiles has 28 years of banking experience. Fifteen were at SouthTrust Bank in Huntsville, where he was most recently the senior vice president of commercial lending.

He started out at Citizens and Southern National Bank, which is now part of Charlotte, N.C.-based Bank of America Corp.
