J. Scott Wilfong, head of the Maryland region of SunTrust Banks Inc. - and a force within Baltimore's philanthropic community - was yesterday named the new leader of the bank's much-larger Atlanta operation. Wilfong's promotion is part of a change in the way the Atlanta-based SunTrust manages its regional operations, and well deserved, a bank spokesman said. A successor will be named later. "He did a great job in Baltimore," said SunTrust spokesman Barry Koling. Members of the city's nonprofit community felt the same way about the results Wilfong achieved in his broadly reaching civic and philanthropic work.

The American Cancer Society has lost what could amount to thousands of donation checks from around the mid-Atlantic region - allegedly because a bank employee in Glen Burnie thought she had too much work to do. The charity has hired an independent accounting firm to estimate how much money went astray in Maryland and how much can be recovered. More than a thousand checks totaling $83,000 have been found. "What we have determined is there are a number of checks written to the American Cancer Society that are unaccounted for," said Greg Donaldson, national vice president for corporate communications at the society's headquarters in Atlanta.

After all, heart disease runs in his family. His wife, Susan, suffers from dilated cardiomyopathy, a condition in which the heart weakens and becomes enlarged. Her brother died at the age of 13 and her father at the age of 61 from the same condition. Their daughter, Sarah, 29, has a defibrillator and his sister-in-law has had a heart transplant.

ATLANTA - SunTrust Banks Inc. fired three executives, including its chief credit officer, and reassigned a fourth yesterday after an internal probe revealed multiple accounting errors in its reserve for bad auto loans. The investigation, which began nearly a month ago and coincides with a continuing U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission inquiry, delayed the release of the financial institution's third-quarter earnings. Those results will be released tomorrow. SunTrust, which has more than $128 billion in assets, set aside more money during the first and second quarters than it should have for actual and expected losses in its auto loans portfolio.
