Crestar selects 6 executives from Loyola An effort to keep 'local people'

January 03, 1996|By Bill Atkinson | Bill Atkinson,SUN STAFF

Crestar Financial Corp. yesterday named six former Loyola Capital Corp. executives to the management team of its new Maryland region.

The group is charged with running Crestar's Baltimore-based operation, which has 30 branches, 135,000 customers and $1.5 billion in deposits.

The announcement came two days after the Richmond-based banking company completed its acquisition of Loyola, Baltimore's largest independent thrift.

"It is to our advantage to keep as many local people because we don't know this market," said William C. Harris, chairman of Crestar's Greater Washington and Maryland banking division. "We have a lot of work to do to get Crestar on the map because nobody knows who we are in Baltimore."

Wycoff is regional president

As previously announced, William A. Wycoff, former executive vice president of Loyola, is president of the Maryland region.

The management team reporting to Mr. Wycoff includes Loyola executives. They are: Gail L. Letts, executive vice president for retail banking; Gail O'Hara, vice president for marketing; John F. Winkler Jr., vice president for small business lending; Patricia Farmer, assistant vice president for community reinvestment; Donald A. Mattran Jr., senior vice president and regional managing director for Crestar Securities Corp.; and Sandra Leerhoff-Rezac, vice president of finance.

Crestar executives who also will be based in Baltimore and report to Mr. Wycoff include: John F. Gayle, executive vice president for commercial lending; Harry W. Golliday, executive vice president for credit administration; Jeffrey A. Welch, senior vice president and regional credit administrator for commercial real estate; and Susan Garabedian, vice president of human resources.
