Park Sterling expands wealth team and adds chief marketing officer


Park Sterling Corporation, the holding company for Park Sterling Bank, has hired three additional bankers for the bank's wealth management team in Richmond, Virginia.

The team is headed up by Michael Williams, head of wealth management.
In addition, the company has hired a new chief marketing officer, also based in Richmond.
George Meyls joins Park Sterling as senior vice president and head of private banking. Meyls, who was most recently private banking director at StellarOne Bank, has over 20 years of wealth management and private banking experience including positions at Paine Webber, Smith Barney, and Wells Fargo Bank. Meyls will have company-wide leadership responsibility for private banking across the company, in addition to building this line of business in Virginia.
Russell Carter, most recently a trust advisor at Union First Market Bank in Richmond, joins Park Sterling as a trust advisor. Based in Richmond, Carter brings with him nearly 20 years of experience in the trust area including roles at JP Morgan Chase, SunTrust Bank, and StellarOne.
Alan Smith joins Park Sterling as a trust advisor based in Charlotte. Smith has seven years of banking experience, most recently with PNC Bank, where he was a relationship manager in wealth management and with Bank of America as a client manager.
Angela Ross joins Park Sterling as chief marketing officer. A 30-year marketing veteran, Ross was most recently chief branding officer at StellarOne, and held senior roles at La-Z-Boy and Circuit City.
"We are delighted to continue to enhance our wealth management team under the astute direction of Michael Williams and to strengthen these capabilities in the critical Charlotte and Richmond metro markets," says James C Cherry, chief executive officer. "We are especially pleased to increase our management presence in Richmond with the addition of Angela Ross as chief marketing officer and George Meyls as head of private banking. Their impressive experience and skill sets are a perfect fit for our rapidly expanding company. Our commitment to building a significant presence in Virginia is further demonstrated by the fact that company-wide leadership of wealth management, private banking, mortgage banking, and marketing is all now based in Richmond, creating a solid foothold for growth in Virginia and throughout our footprint."
