🕐 1 min read

Truist Financial Corporation (NYSE: TFC), the result of the historic merger of equals between BB&T and SunTrust, announced Dec. 10 that Julia Harman has been appointed as the Truist regional president for North Texas.

Harman, based in Dallas, will be responsible for delivering the full complement of the company’s services to clients in the area. Prior to this current role, she served as the North Texas market president at SunTrust.

Harman is one of 24 regional presidents named by the merged company in many of the most attractive high-growth markets in the country, Truist said in a news release.

“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,” David H. Weaver, Commercial Community Bank executive, said in the announcement.

“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,” Weaver said.

The news release said that Truist also allows for the opportunity to combine the heritage of BB&T’s Community Bank with the strength of SunTrust’s strategic advisory capabilities.

With 275 years of combined BB&T and SunTrust history, Truist is one of the nation’s largest financial services holding companies, the company said in the news release.
