Leaders to serve local markets offering specialized expertise for key client segments and industries

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Truist Financial Corporation (NYSE: TFC), the result of the historic merger of equals between BB&T and SunTrust, announced today twenty-four regional presidents who will champion its unique Community Banking model in many of the most attractive, high-growth markets in the country.

"Our ability to leverage our unique Community Banking model with its decentralized, regional structure combined with deep industry and banking expertise immediately sets Truist apart from our larger competitors and allows us to operate on a more personal level with individual and business clients, providing them with the kind of attention they expect from a hometown bank," said David H. Weaver, Commercial Community Bank executive. "It also empowers our regional presidents with the authority, delivery and decision making they need to remain close to our clients along with highly visible and engaged leadership in our communities. Most importantly, it enables us to continue building long-term relationships of trust with our clients, based on fairness, transparency and respect."

Each regional president's team is comprised of experienced financial professionals dedicated to serving the company's diverse mix of clients, including: business banking; commercial banking; middle market banking; not-for-profit/government banking; regional commercial real estate.
