PNC Bank, a subsidiary of Pittsburgh's PNC Bank Corp., has assigned two executive vice presidents and four senior vice presidents in Philadelphia to new roles in its wealth management unit, PNC Advisors.

All six had worked in the PNC Private Bank, which has been absorbed into PNC Advisors, and four of the six are women, including two who have been involved in the Women's Financial Services Group, a specialized sales group within the new unit. The four women will have nationwide responsibilities for their business units.

"We look forward to expanding in the 19 states where we already do business and elsewhere across the nation," said Thomas K. Whitford, chief executive officer of PNC Advisors.

Executive vice president Nancy Wolcott is to oversee business strategy for personal and institutional investment management, as well as sales. She joined PNC Bank in 1996 as a strategic planner for the investment group after 20 years at Harris Bank in Chicago.
